The Outer Banks (OBX)

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

We spent the last two weeks in the outer banks of N. Carolina, so while here I thought I would share our dining experiences.  Because OBX is really about casual, we very seldom visit the 2 or 3 upscale restaurants, we have eaten in the past at Aqua S in Southern Shores in Duck, Prime Only in Nags Head and the Sanderling in Duck. However, after plunking down between $2000 and $4000 a week most folks are looking for casual dining with a slightly lower price, well much lower!

Our ist of places we have eaten is long, however, I will keep the list to our current visit.  We usually eat diner in because we always stay in a friens house at the 20-mile marker and usually have copious amounts of wine, need I say more?  This trip we have eaten at:

Blue Moon Beach Grill Located at mile post 13 in Surf Side Plaza on the beach road.

We have eaten diner at Blue Moon ever since they opened about 3-years ago, over the winter that expanded the restaurant.  This visit was for lunch, there were 4 of us, the girls shared a Spinach & Arugula Salad and split the beach burger and fries.  The guys each had the sour of the day, which was crab and blue cheese chowder and one of us had the shrimp “not a burger” and the shrimp  po’ boy. The shrimp “not a burger” a zesty sandwich comes with blackened shrimp, fried green tomato & sharp provolone.  Served on toasted ciabatta bread with arugula, basil aioli and a balsamic reduction and erved with fries. Excellent. (more…)
