Although the Outer Banks is nationally renowned for its delectable seafood, there are a lot of great spots for the vegetarian visitor. When traveling along these islands, you won't find a restaurant that specifies being only vegetarian. But don't worry! There are plenty of great options to choose from to fulfill your vegetarian cravings. We have talented chefs in almost every restaurant on every single island that can make you a vegetarian meal that will leave you happy, healthy and full. Occasionally, you might stumble across an Outer Banks restaurant that does not have a specified vegetarian item on the menu, but this doesn't mean you can't feast without meat! Just let your server know what you want! Most restaurants are used to, and more than willing to, customize a plate just for you satisfied. That said, several restaurants here have been on the leading edge of the specialized menu curve by offering a specific vegetarian menu for a decade or more. The Outer Banks is great for the vegetarian eater because it provides a unique influence of Southern and coastal cooking, creating a combination and variety of tastes that's distinctly Outer Banks. Vegetarian or not, you will appreciate the fact that many local restaurants choose their produce from local sources, so it's particularly fresh and tasty.
