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!

Take a look at our menu or daily specials page on our website to see what local seafood we are getting in today and know that 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... At Mulligan's Raw Bar & Grille!

Love The Upstairs Bar and Deck

We stopped in several times during our two weeks in Nags Head. The food is good, particularly the burgers and Shrimp Stack. They advertise as the best burgers on the beach, and I agree. The fried Portabella and Asparagus, not so much. The bar upstairs is nice, and the weather was unseasonably... read more

Ate here our first night in town. Fresh locally sourced seafood and produce- it was awesome. Had steamed oysters, fried oysters, broiled scallops, hamburgers... everything was wonderful. Service was great as well- friendly and reasonably quick.

Awesome restaurant! My wife and I went to Mulligan's for the first time on January 16, 2016. The burgers were some of the best I have ever had and the prices we very reasonable. Also, they do have a small selection of local craft beer. Give them a try, you won't be disappointed,

My husband and I stopped by Mulligan's for dinner on a beautiful January evening! The service was great even though they were hosting an event upstairs. We had the Mulligan burger and it was yummy! The service was great and the prices were reasonable. We'll be going back!

Off season on the Outer Banks reduces your options for dinner. Doing our monthly shopping trip we found ourselves in Nags Head at dinner time and re-visited Mulligans. Salty oysters are currently on the menu and we started there. We looked at the dinner menu and the appetizers looked so good we said let's just make up our own dinner.... More

This place was quickly recommended by the hotel when we asked about a good restaurant that was still open during the off season. So we thought we'd give it a try. I wish we hadn't. The rock fish special wasn't so special. It was too heavily breaded and had no flavor other than the breading. The coleslaw lacked any flavor.... More

Not sure if owner knows or not, but the scallops are not legit scallops. Didnt like paying scallop price for fakes. Drinks were good other food was good....but wanted to leave a warning about this particular item. When one gets sea scallops, they should not be uniform in shape and size, or fibrous like these were. They should be sweet,... More

Hey Debbie, thank you for the feedback and we are sorry to hear the scallops did not meet your expectations especially considering we won an award this year for best oyster bar, in part because of our reputation for fresh and local seafood. However, I can assure you that our scallops are indeed REAL with extra cost spent to ensure... More

Not sure why there are so many negative reviews. We came here in the offseason and it was still very busy. We had a large group with two small kids and maresa was our sever. She was quick and funny and attentive. The burgers were amazing, so juicy and the buffalo shrimp and Mac and cheese were great.
