A group of 13 of us came here for dinner. It is a lot of fun. The food was excellent and the drinks were great. Our server, Justine , couldn't be better.

We go to the Outer banks every year. We go to Mulligan's at least once per trip. It never let's us down. Something for everyone. It was the perfect place to view the Eclipse last year too.

Sad place. Although there were plenty of open tables, we had to wait 30 minutes for one because they were short on help. That should have told us something. We had to sit by the door because the host didn't know how to enter 10...More

Had the best appetizer at this restaurant. The shrimp and grits popper was outstanding. The crush drinks were good and Savannah took care of a large group without issues and was very efficient with her service.

When you go into anyplace with a table over 20, great service isn’t really expected. Not so tonight. Savannah was our waitress, she took care of 5 families that were sitting all over the place. Her, the upstairs bartender, and foodies runners did an amazing...More

Located at milepost 13 in Nags Head across from Jockey's Ridge State Park, we have unbelievable views from our second floor deck of the Atlantic Ocean and the historic Nags Head cottages. As a matter of fact, we don't believe that you can truly unwind until you've ordered an Orange Crush on the deck at Mulligan's! We strive to buy as much of our products as locally as possible-local seafood, local produce, and locally butchered meats. We strive to bring only the freshest local food to your table, from hand-cut beach fries to oysters straight from the Pamlico Sound. We give a whole new meaning to Southern Coastal cuisine. We are also dog friendly! Come and enjoy our outdoor covered patio with your fur friend from 11am-5pm. So come hang out where the locals are!
