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!

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...More

We are huge fans of Shrimp and Grits, and Fatty’s has the best, hands down. They are perfectly cooked with a creamy mushroom sauce, with pieces of sausage and peppers, absolute heaven. The portions are generous and the staff is amazing. The owner/chef comes out...More
