Love the down home atmosphere. Food is prepared right at the kitchen behind the bar. No particular dress code. Very beach casual. Walls covered in old and unusual photographs. Food is good and the price is appropriate for the area. Home made everything! Definitely will be going back!

Art's place has become a staple for us every time we visit Outer Banks. It is nothing fancy, which is why we like it. It is family-friendly, but it is also a bar. When we have young ones with us, we just go early. It remains the place in Outer Banks why we love the hamburgers. Staff has always been... More

The burgers are really good. It's one of the few places I know of that you can still get a burger Carolina style: cheese, slaw, & chilli. A smallish place with indoor & outdoor seating and brick a bracelet on the walls.

It is the attitude that makes it a 5. SO BEACH! So chilled and happy!!!! Food was more than great for the value! We love to 'fine dine' in the OBX(Blue Point, Paper Canoe, etc). We do not consider Art's our 'exception'; we feel it is part of our MUST!! WE LOVE ART'S! Price, food, cleanliness, personality all a 5!!!

That piece of plastic was right into my sandwich I've founded when I took a bite I don't feel like going back again

Once again it's been around for years...the cooks and staff at this small place are outstanding and work there butts off. If your into breakfast and brunch please stop bye it's small so don't be discouraged. Watch the cooks in the open kitchen, cleanliness and outstanding quality of personal service can't match any where.

You may go to Art's for many reasons but make breakfast one of them. Excellent food. Friendly service.

Art's Place is a little restaurant on Beach Road/Hwy12/Virginia Dare Trail, whatever name you choose - it's all the same. They have the best burgers and the coldest beer, and the nicest people! I love their blue burgers and fries. The fries are real with the skin like you get at the county fair. I have never seen a lot... More

Their Biscuit and Sausage Gravy is the best. Also their breakfast sandwich. Also for lunch/dinner, their burgers and fries are great. I typically have a late lunch and then skip dinner. Same for breakfast. You won't need a lunch if you have breakfast there.
