Hatteras Island Restaurants - Lighthouse and Dunes


Hatteras Island is fun and funky, unique, remote, and stunningly beautiful. The same can be said for Hatteras Island Restaurants. From Rodanthe, Waves, Avon, Salvo, Frisco, and Buxton, down to Hatteras proper, there are lots of great places to grab a snack or stop and sit down for a full meal.

Stop at any of the independently owned markets along Highway 12 to pick up a freshly made sandwich, fill the cooler with drinks, and get some snacks for later too. Many of them offer things like artisan cheeses and meats and fresh fruit to-go, so you can put together the perfect beach picnic.

If you’re in the mood for seafood, you’ve come to right place. You’ve heard of farm-to-table? Well, this is sea-to-table at its very finest! Most of the fish and shellfish you find on menus around Hatteras was caught just offshore, often that very morning. Your server can probably even tell you the name of the fisherman who reeled your flounder in.

The people of Hatteras have been making a living off the sea for generations and they’ve really perfected the art of authentic OBX dining. Everything is casual and beachy – island time for sure!
