Description: This local, Outer Banks restaurant is now in it's 35th anniversary season. That's probably why it's called a 'Nags Head Tradition' by locals. Currently open for breakfast daily. Weekends - spring and fall - and daily in the summer season, there's a robust fruit and breakfast bar plus some whopping good breakfast platters. When dinner opens shortly, Specialties are real southern cooking - like fried chicken. Also a specialty - local, Outer Banks seafood - broiled, fried, and always good. Steaks and prime rib round out the dinner menu. The "R" Bar is great for a late night meal or a special drink. And if all this isn't enough, there's Roxie's Retail - great, flirty finds for your home or wardrobe. It's a family run organization that is glad to welcome locals and vacationers alike.

Easter breakfast buffet was good.
Staff was excellent.
The buffet had eggs, fruit danish and french toast.
We did not have a long wait.

The ONLY place for breakfast in the Outer Banks ! Other places for Lunch and Dinner . Have not been there since the fire, maybe they offer a better lunch and dinner menu or maybe they do not offer anything but breakfast like the old days. A MUST for breakfast on The Outer Banks Experience .

We have only stopped here for breakfast but are hooked! I get the same thing everytime....shrimp and grits. The breakfast bar looks great and I want to get it but can't stay away from the shrimp and grits. Try their homemade biscuits...they are sooo goood! Great service! We go every time we are in town!
