“I love Blue Water Grill which is located at Pirate's Cove Marina just before the bridge to Nags Head. Its a great place for a nice lunch or dinner with great sound side views. In the summer, check out Mimi's Tiki Hut for cocktails while waiting for the sport fishing vessels to return from the Gulf Stream. Mimi's is dog friendly. Good service, cocktails, atmosphere and most importantly, good food! Love the bison burgers! ”

“New York Pizza Pub is more than just pizza! The food is fabulous, the atmosphere is pleasing and the drinks are great. But did you know that they are also one of the most popular Nags Head restaurants for nightlife?! They are a well-known location for some of the area’s top bands and artists, ranging from hip hop to Reggae to Sunday evening jazz dinners. With such a wide range of musical styles, they attract nightlife enthusiasts from young to old. It is a welcoming venue where you feel right at home if you’re 21 or 71!”
