A Nags Head Restaurant Tradition for 3 Decades

Welcome to The Dunes Restaurant & Bar, a Nags Head breakfast restaurant, dinner restaurant and full service bar all in one. We have been a favorite on the Outer Banks dining scene for the past 37 years and hope that you will make us a part of your family tradition.

Every morning, we specialize in big Outer Banks breakfasts. The breakfast and fruit bar, which is served daily in season and on weekends the rest of the year, is loaded with fresh fruit, pastries, homemade biscuits as well as eggs, grits, bacon, creamed chipped beef and sausage gravy, just to name a few. No one leaves hungry. Each night, we serve the freshest Outer Banks seafood, including fresh fish, crabs, shrimp and oysters cooked just the way you like. Plus most nights, there are seasonal specials added to the menu.

Starting on November 22, we’re adding lunch and ending our dinner service for the 2019 season (dinner will be back again next spring).  We’ll serve breakfast right through lunch and lunch till two pm Wednesday thru Sunday throughout the winter season. Our kitchen crew is already testing hardy lunch specials to keep you warm during the winter months. We invite you to come to our Nags Head restaurant. And enjoy some Outer Banks, coastal hospitality.
