“If you can't get in to Blue Moon Beach Grill, try their sister restaurant Blue Water Grill and Raw Bar. They are located in the Pirate's Cove Marina and there are some pretty views of the marina as well as the sound. It can also get crowded during peak hours but is much bigger so you may have an easier time getting in. It's also close to the house and is a little higher in price but the food is totally worth it. Like their sister restaurant Blue Moon Beach Grill, they also offer great seafood options.”

“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!”
