2018 OCEAN TEMPERATURE - KH - Posted By: mmasut on 6/20/2018
Hi, This will be our 11th year vacationing in OBX and was wondering how the ocean temperature was fairing so far. I have to say, last year the water temp was the coldest it had ever been. Hopefully this year it will be warmer. (July 21 - 28th) Cheers!

OCTOBER VACATION - Posted By: pdcnurse on 6/20/2018
Let's here it for me. I didn't think I could come to the outer banks this year but something came up and I'm coming up there in October, in time for the seafood festival. I'm loving life right now. :prt:

SHELLY ISLAND - Posted By: minorjr on 6/20/2018
Got a question about shelly island. Is it only accessible by boat. Are the real nice shells only on the island. Are there any shells at the point. My wife was thinking about taking a trip down to the lighthouse and heading over to check out the shells. Any info would be appreciated. Thank you

BUXTON MUNCH - Great as usual
It's quirky and different, but man is it good. We'll be back!

THE MAD CRABBER - Still one of our favorites
They no longer have my favorite, snow crabs and shrimp, due to the cost of snow crabs, but my wife and I both had "Fisherman's Pie", a special. It was like shepherds pie, except shrimp and crab instead of ground beef. It was great! We'll be back!

THE CAPTAIN'S TABLE - Used to be our favorite
This restaurant used to be our favorite, but last year the lady who ran it for years retired. We decided to try the new folks this week. Its a shadow of its former self. My wife had shrimp and scallops, her favorite that she's gotten there many times. The shrimp were over cooked. We used to get hush puppies when we sat down. After quite a wait we finally got hush puppies but the were not good. ... [Read Full Review]

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]
