Fodor's Review

Family owned since 1946, this restaurant, housed in a replica of an early-19th-century Outer Banks lifesaving station, is more like a museum: classic clapboard construction, pine paneling, and filled with maritime artifacts. Stick with fresh-off-the-boat local seafood or prime beef. Miss O's traditional crab cakes are popular, as is filet mignon topped with lump crabmeat and asparagus with béarnaise sauce. Pecan-encrusted sea scallops are plump and tender. The 14-layer chocolate cake is another longstanding favorite. In summer, arrive early and expect to wait. The brass-and-glass Station Keeper's Lounge has entertainment Friday and Saturday nights in summer and early fall.
