SUNDAY 12/10 ON THE OBX. - Posted By: JimmyZ on 12/10/2017
The sun finally came out after a few ugly days. It was a beautiful day. The temp was 43 but felt warmer. The ocean was a little muddy and had some big waves that were really crashing on shore. The winds were from the NW but on the beach you were buffered by the dunes. I found more sea glass today than I did all summer.

Scheduled end of construction 5/23/2019 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I made a day trip to Raleigh today and dodged any delays on the bridge.

SALTBOX CAFE, THE - Best Food on the Beach by far
The more I go here the more I like it and the more I am just impressed with the quality and the care they take to make a perfect meal. I had the tuna with an etouffee sauce last night that was one of the best things I have ever eaten anywhere. they take reservations and you will need one in the summer. It's not large or fancy and it is well hidden, but it is so well worth the price and the effort ... [Read Full Review]

Just went in the off season, and had their Friday night special (fried oysters) and they were delicious! Prices are reasonable and a good selection of beers on draft.

KETCH 55 SEAFOOD GRILL - It was okay
Was disappointed that the shrimp in the shrimp and grits were on the small size and shells were still on. Service was good, and appetizers were okay. We went in the off-season which may have affected menu choices.

TORTUGAS' LIE - Great Meal After 12 Hr Drive
We needed a quick and easy meal after our long drive from Cleveland. Tortugas' was just down the street from our cottage. We opted for burgers and fries. My mom has the Swiss Jerk Burger and I had a basic cheeseburger. The patty was large and cooked to perfection (medium). The fries were amazing. The salt and pepper they put on the fries is awesome. The tomato and lettuce on the burger was... [Read Full Review]
