If fiery red sunsets and marinated tuna entice you, this is the place to eat. Locals come to eat, drink, and take in Roanoke Sound's serene views. Portions of everything—from clam chowder to barbecued shrimp to crab cakes and calamari—are huge. You can also get steak, ribs, and chicken. The turtle cake, with chocolate, pecans, and caramel, is a dieter's nightmare. There's a little pier outside and an attached outdoor gazebo where you can get a drink. Visit the Sugar
Shack next door for the raw bar or quick to-go orders of sandwiches, steamed seafood, or fresh catch to cook yourself. Both businesses are on the causeway between Nags Head and Roanoke Island.
