Mike Dianna’s Grill Room has become a legendary Outer Banks restaurant. Offering fine dining in a casual atmosphere, it is most well-known for its excellently prepared meats — all-natural and USDA Prime beef, pork, chicken and veal — cooked over a hardwood grill. The fresh, local seafood is treated just as beautifully, and there are daily pasta specials as well as a menu just for kids. Accompany your meal with a distinctive selection from their award-winning wine list. The restaurant opens for dinner at 5 p.m., and reservations are recommended. Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, enjoy live music and drinks on the covered deck from 6 to 9:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Fridays, until 1 a.m. on Wednesdays and until midnight on Thursdays (when karaoke takes the stage). Mike Dianna’s Grill Room can accommodate rehearsal dinners, small weddings and other family gatherings.
