You can't eat and drink any closer to the ocean than this. Outer Banks Pier offers a restaurant and bar with seating on the deck in the sun or moon or under a roof with open sides. They serve hamburgers, fries, steamed shrimp and veggies, fish tacos and more. Wine and beer are available, including a great selection of draft beers, and they also have some breakfast sandwiches for the early birds and anglers. They're open every day, with a daily happy hour from 4 to 6 p.m., and have live entertainment every night during the summer. It's quite the popular spot and parking is limited so walk, bike, Uber or carpool with your friends if you can. Dress for the weather and elements as this experience is entirely open air.
