31. Family Fare

Visitors to the Outer Banks truly appreciate the family-friendly atmosphere.  Activities abound, like simply spending time on the beach, visiting the museums and aquariums, fishing, and day trips to other Outer Banks locales.  There is so much for a family to enjoy.

OBX restaurants also have great ways for your family to enjoy the wonderful meals available here providing amazing family fare. If your family is craving seafood you can’t go wrong with one of the many restaurants that make Outer Banks freshly-caught seafood their specialty. From seasonal soft-shell crab to locally caught shrimp and fish straight from the boat, you will find it cooked to perfection here.

Plenty of Outer Banks restaurants offer “take out”. Grab a bucket of shrimp and seafood, a pizza, a bushel of crabs, Asian delights, or try one of the local hamburger or hot dog places.  Of course there are fast food joints, but why not try something a little different while out of town? 
People here know how important family is. We try to do everything we can do to make your experience a delight. High chairs, booster seats, cups with lids, and large group tables are all readily available.

Whether it is wonderful children’s menus, outdoor play areas, or a theme that will capture your children’s imaginations, there are so many great restaurants on the Outer Banks that cater to large groups and families.
