Fatty's treats and tours is an exciting new business on the outer banks! We have 24 flavors of Hershey's ice cream, milkshakes, smoothies, shaved ice, gifts, toys, and our always popular T-shirts with Fatty the seagull! If your looking for a way to burn off those calories or just a fun way to spend the day with the family Fattys is conveniently located on some of the best kayaking grounds on the entire outerbanks! Our tours take you on a trip through time to visit the very spot the English first landed in the new world. There are sting rays, and fish at play in the water, and egrets, pelecians, and heron to watch in the air! Fattys is an experience for everyone of all ages so come out and support locals, and have a great time!

Alright, alright, there's a spot just south of Fatty's that you will be visiting, hope you get there early enough... but the actual BREAKFAST is at Fatty's. FanTAStic biscuits, shrimp & grits for the true southerners, magnificent ambiance and a huge setbog options on the menu. I've been coming to iterations of this place for more than a decade, and...

Great place for a quick meal and ice cream. Kids loved the burgers and fries. Me, the ice cream! Friendly service.

This is a gem of a place on an island where things are notoriously over-priced. The ice cream was delicious, the server was polite and attentive (allowing us to sample whatever we wanted), and the price was great. We got 7 ice creams (generous portions) for $25. Go here for your post meal dessert!

Stopped here on our way out of town with our boys. 12 yo really liked the Mac and cheese burger. My chicken Swiss mushroom burger was excellent. Fries were tasty too. Would go again.

So glad we discovered this place! For years we have gone to the old familiar bakeries and restaurants, but took a chance because of how crowded those were. I'm really happy we did, because Fatty's offers delicious breakfast options different from the usual fare. You can get breakfast sandwiches and eggs, bacon, sausage, etc., but we opted for Belgian waffles... More

We stopped in on our way out of Hatteras and oh boy what an awesome experience! We dined in and ordered burgers, kids meals and shrimp. The shrimp was melt in your mouth good! The burgers were on point and the kids chowed down their grilled cheese and chicken fingers. Glad we made the stop! Oh and service was out... More

We ordered the specials of the day: chicken and dumplings, grilled cheese with bacon and tomato and steak and potato soup. The sandwich was almost burned on one side with an almost transparent slice of tomato and yellow cheese. The soup was like potato soup with a few pieces of carrots, mushrooms, onion and one piece of beef. The flavor... More

We loved it here! Lunch options in January are very limited, when we spotted this restaurant and noticed it was open we decided to give it a try. Very interesting menu options, just had to try the daily special. There were 4 in our party and we each ordered something different. No one was disappointed. Only 1 waitress working but... More

We were looking for a place to get a light lunch after leaving the Hatteras lighthouse and Fatty's was right there as we were leaving Buxton. We stopped and were not disappointed. It's worth the stop just to read all the sayings they have hanging in the restaurant. Service was exceptional and the food very tasty. The french fries had... More
