One of the best places to eat on the Outer Banks is Ocean Boulevard in Kitty Hawk.
My family has loved eating at this restaurant for years, back when it was still owned by the same people who run the Blue Point. We had been dining there since the mid 1980s when it first opened. However, BP expanded and the food has not made us as happy in recent years as it used to. OB also remembers it’s longtime customers and goes the extra mile. BP is good but not as great as OB.
So, Ocean Boulevard is our regular place now.
Their busiest night is on Thursdays, but it is worth the wait. The menu is diverse but not expansive and ridiculous [I’m talking to you Cheesecake Factory] and they have wonderful wine pairings and martinis as well.
You can call them to make reservations at (252) 261-2546.
If you can, and your party is 5 people or less, request the chef’s tables so you can watch the men at work. During the off-season it is the best, as they can converse with you freely during that time.
Locals love this place, and I know of tons of people who will drive down from the Hampton Roads area just to have dinner there. It is THAT good.
