We always head here for breakfast at least once during our vacation. The pancakes are huge and delicious; eggs perfectly cooked to order; service is fast and friendly. But what really sets this place apart is the great ocean view. It’s a true OBX experience...More

Loved this location at Jeannettes pier. The adirondack bar height tables and chairs were comfortable. We had a wonderful crab dip and great drinks one afternoon. Would love to go back next time I'm there.

Another OBX favorite. This is a no frills restaurant with limited selections. Fresh fish is always on the menu, including a "you catch it, we cook it" menu option for the fisherman. If you purchase dinner, it includes a pier pass that allows sightseeing on...More

The food is typical for a fishing pier. Large portions of fried fish, french fries, burgers, etc. We ate here for dinner, but I believe they are open for breakfast and lunch as well. Small dining room but great view of the ocean, beach, and...More
