Paper Canoe



If you are visiting Duck or anywhere on the Outer Banks, the Paper Canoe is a great dining experience for your vacation. From the freshly baked bread to the well-chilled drinks, affordable wines, craft beers, excellent salads, and the ever-changing daily menu selections, Paper Canoe has something on the menu for most folks. This is great food with a gorgeous view of the Currituck Sound as a bonus.

The Paper Canoe is fresh food prepared simply with a passion by a team of friends that use ingredients from their own backyard. The staff and owner are dedicated to your experience from the time you walk in the door until your departure. The owner, Tommy Karole, is on site almost every night to make sure you have a great experience.

The menu is diverse. Handmade pasta, locally caught seafood and rustic wood oven specialties. Vegetarian? There is a vegetarian plate that is truly one of the best.


Paper Canoe accepts reservations…a rarity on the Outer Banks in summer and particularly rare in Duck. During the busy summer months, you are encouraged to call ahead, call early,  plan ahead, and make sure that you can experience what the Paper Canoe is about. Make sure to make reservations or else you may not get a chance to enjoy this Outer Banks culinary hot spot. Visit one time and you will become a regular on all your visits to the Outer Banks.
