A Nags Head Restaurant Tradition for 4 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 40 seasons and hope that you will make us a part of your family tradition.

Every morning, we specialize in big Outer Banks breakfasts. We've cooked millions of eggs over the years, so we know a thing or two about what makes a good meal! Plus you add grits, bacon, or homemade biscuits to anything and it's the basis of The Dunes' good Southern breakfasts. No one leaves hungry.

Each evening we cook some amazing, local seafood and regionally sourced steaks, along with plenty other dining options.  And every meal comes with our well known, secret recipe hush puppies and our yummy butter.  There’s plenty of specialty drinks, wine and local beers to pair with any meal or just sit at the bar and enjoy, plus some really special, homemade desserts to finish off the day.

As if serving good food isn't enough, Roxie Pritchard, one of the owners, decided she wanted to add her own touch to the restaurant -- and opened Roxie's Retail.  It's a coastal collection of gifts, art, jewelry, fun beach decor, bags & purses, t-shirts, kids toys & books.  It's a collection she sources every year and personally helps order, merchandise and shows off throughout the Dunes.

We invite you to come to our Nags Head restaurant and enjoy some Outer Banks, coastal, hospitality. Family owned and operated for 40 seasons.
