The Dunes Restaurant in Nags Head, NC

The Dunes Restaurant in Nags Head, NC

Family-owned and operated, Rufus and Roxie Pritchard have been at the helm of The Dunes Restaurant since 1983. Rufus began working the early mornings as the head breakfast cook, and Roxie was the hostess and the first face you see when walking through the front door.

Now, 30-plus years later, the eatery has become one of the go-to places in Nags Head for breakfast and dinner.

Located just off the bypass at milepost 16 across from Target Outlet, the parking lot at this Outer Banks staple is always packed during breakfast hours.

With southern hospitality and a menu filled with your morning favorites – pancakes, scrambled eggs, omelets, biscuits, and gravy – it's no wonder many people enjoy at least one meal at The Dunes Restaurant during their vacation.

During dinner, patrons can choose from many delectable seafood dishes and some American classics like burgers, fries, steaks, and more. The chefs at The Dunes Restaurant do their best to use as many sustainable products that are sourced both locally and regionally.

The kids' menu has something for even the pickiest of young eaters. With a well-laid-out dining room and competent wait staff and hosts, this restaurant can effortlessly cater to larger parties. And remember dessert!

Their post-dinner menu includes sweet Georgia peach cobbler, sky-high carrot cake, and The Dunes' signature key lime pie… yum!

Open from the late spring to early autumn, consider giving The Dunes Restaurant a try during your next Nags Head vacation!
