Owens' Restaurant Review
This family-owned restaurant, in business since 1946, is housed in a replica of a lifesaving station like those found on the Outer Banks in the early 19th century. The classic clapboard building has pine paneling and is filled with maritime artifacts. Stick with fresh-off-the-boat local seafood or prime beef; the kitchen staff excels at both. Miss O's crab cakes are ever 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 delicious. 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.
