What a great place! Small, but cozy and fun! Only 4 tables and a bar inside and many tables outside. Lot's of "locals" there when we went for lunch. The BEST hamburger I have ever had! It was near the beach. Must stop here!

Not many places open in OBX in the off season. We called 2 other burger restaurants, but Art's was the only one to answer. Their Carolina Burger is great. Could have done without the coleslaw, but their fries more than made up for it! Great service, great food.

I wish our visit to the area was going to be a longer one so I could come back sooner than later! Breakfast was excellent, prices were great & service outstanding. A small place, but even if there is a wait for a table, do yourself a favor & wait for one. You will not be disappointed!

We ate in the day after Christmas and there was a line waiting for seats. Hand cut fries are phenomenal, burger was very tasty, and they serve a good southern sweet tea with ice! I will go back next time we are there.

Great little place in "downtown Kitty Hawk" -- love the art (work), soundtrack, and appreciated the atmosphere and irreverence. Marbled rye for the BLT was great; partner really liked his tuna steak & salad.

Love this place. One of a kind. May have to wait but it's worth it. Sit at the bar. They have tons of different bottled beer and locals feel.

I ordered a grilled chicken quesadilla and it was excellent. Not many tables so I am sure during the summer you'd have to wait. Service was very fast and friendly.

The place is humble. The food is simple. And that is perfect. This is the kind of place I dream of finding, real food done right. The burgers are generously sized hand formed patties that actually taste like something. The side salad was just baby leaf spinach with balsamic vinegar sprinkled on top. The blue cheese that covered it was... More
