My wife and I first visited the Outer Banks in 1971 and we return every year. We rent an ocean front cottage and have that special dinner out on every trip. Dinner Out is always Owens'. There is no better dining on the Outer Banks. Make it memorable. This restaurant is a destination, not a spot to drop in with the kids for a quick bite. If you just want good local sandwiches try PigMan, Owen's Restaurant is not inexpensive. We've occasionally asked to be re-seated. Not all tables and rooms are the same. We expect the perfect evening. We bring friends and we expect the restaurant to impress. We've not been disappointed.
