BLUE HERON MOTEL - Posted By: ohplease on 4/25/2018
Looks like it's for sale. 4.9 million dollars. Any takers? :)

WATER RESCUE KITTY HAWK - Posted By: Tim-OBX on 4/25/2018
It is starting early. There was a water rescue in KH and it does not sound good. When they call out the chaplains it's bad. Just because you can get in the water does not mean you should. Common sense is often cast aside and it shouldn't be. Be safe, be smart. Sad

JUNE ROLL CALL - Posted By: J4yDubs on 4/25/2018
Ok, I'm under 100 now (95 days!), so time for a roll call. Who's going in June? June 24th - July 1 - Hatteras Village John

THE OUTER BANKS ON EBAY - Posted By: MongOBX on 4/25/2018
I was on eBay today and searched for things Outer Banks and came across about five or so of these. Are these hot commodities ?

VACATION IN JUNE - Posted By: draksig on 4/25/2018
New to the Board, first post. I moved to North Carolina from Georgia five years ago and only started exploring the outer banks a couple of years ago. The wife and I have made a few day trips to Ocracoke and love it but have not much time to explore due to catching the ferry and going home via the bridge is too exhausting at times. So this year we are taking the plunge and coming for a week ... [Read Full Post]

COASTAL CANTINA - Can't beat the view
My wife and I stopped here while out walking the sound side boardwalk for an early afternoon snack and some drinks. We sat at the picnic tables over looking the sound and we were promptly delivered chips, salsa, and two menus from the waitress/bartender. We placed our order for queso dip and guac and our drinks which were delivered to us quickly. The guac was fresh and the queso dip was amazing! C... [Read Full Review]

ART'S PLACE - Good food, small inside
We enjoyed our mix of food here. I had a burger with pimento cheese and it was great. I was told that the others who had popcorn shrimp, club, and another burger were all tasty too. Service was good also. The place was very small inside. It was spring and still chilly out so we didn't choose to sit outside. There are only 4 or 5 tables, plus maybe 8-10 bar type seats. It's very tight in... [Read Full Review]

DIAMOND SHOALS RESTAURANT - Very Pleased
I may be crazy, but it seems like Diamond Shoals has gotten better over time. My last two meals (lunch and dinner) were in the off-season, but the meals were excellent. I've sampled the crabcake, scallops, shrimp and clam strips. Each was amazing. Best hush puppies on the island; you'd think they'd be easy to do but I've had more than a few sub-par hush puppies elsewhere. Green beans were fresh, n... [Read Full Review]

ATLANTIC COAST CAFE - Fish tacos
Was here in May of 2017. Excellent fish tacos. Staff was super friendly too.

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]
