Fine dining doesn’t mean there’s no room for fun. Who says you can’t feast on filet mignon while in board shorts? Not us, that’s for sure. Open Water Grill tries to offer an experience that’s a little different from other Hatteras restaurants, and just a glimpse through our menu reflects that. We keep our kitchen stocked with fresh ingredients, and we try to use as many of them as possible in our dishes. The best way to describe it is a fusion of Oriental gourmet with coastal grill fare that’s been taken to the next level. What exactly does that mean? We’re so glad you asked! No self-respecting Hatteras restaurant can resist drawing from Outer Banks influences to craft appetizers like Oyster Shooters and entrees like crab mac and cheese and locally caught Asian ginger tuna. But dinner is just the tip of the iceberg! Our signature drinks are made to order, using fresh fruit and only the best spirits to create colorful and mighty tasty concoctions. Let’s say you’ve finished your dinner and are enjoying the final sips of your drink; now’s obviously the time to head for dessert. Our baker is also head of the Scratchmade Snackery and has pulled out all the stops to build the World’s Ugliest Chocolate Cake featuring three different types of chocolate, fudge and two varieties of chocolate frosting — and that's in addition to our other mouthwatering desserts. Or combine the best of both worlds with our 21+ Desserts like the Chocolate Lover’s Margarita. But don’t just take our word for it. Take a browse now to learn more about our offerings. Our menu items’ descriptions are simply an entertaining read. And we doubt that even the pickiest of eaters will be able to resist stopping by.
