Blown away by the quality, and creativity combined with traditional southern food at this cool spot near the beach. Parking can be kind of tricky and this place is consistently crowded, so plan ahead, but do plan for it to be on your agenda for an OBX trip. My brother lives year round on the Outer Banks and he, and... More

Had the most delicious meal at the KDG! If I could give more stars, I would. Unassuming 'diner-style' front belies the culinary excellence inside! We both had the nightly specials - mine the local caught tuna served with a black bean corn salsa atop creamy grits. Husband had the cornmeal encrusted flounder and oyster combo served with hoppin' john beans... More

Awesome appetizer. Get the Cheese steak egg rolls. All the food is good but love these. Usually 5 or 6 specials to choose from. Not a lot of parking, you can park at the hotel across the road.

I live on the outer banks and have been eating at "the Grill" or "KDG" as locals refer to it, for many years. They serve the best Caesar salad I ever ate and adding a crab cake on top is heavenly; their crab cakes are ALL crab! The have daily specials such as blackened drum fish over cheese grits with...

This place is greater we make it a point to eat here every trip to the Outer Banks. The local know what a terrific place this is. They have three specials every night with a large selection on the menu. Everyone can find something great on the menu.

Ate at the bar since there was a wait in the dining room. Both bartenders were so nice. The wings are AMAZING! Red drum special was delicious. The apple crisp was to die for and large enough to share. Great crab cakes too. We want to go back for more wings before we leave.

Thank Ina R
