Mama Kwan’s Tiki Bar and Grill Restaurant in Nags Head, NC

Seafood Boil Outer Banks NC


If you enjoy Pacific Northwest inspired cuisine, you’re going to love Mama Kwan’s in Kill Devil hills.

A longstanding locals favorite, this eatery is always filled with Outer Banks residents, a sure sign that a restaurant is worthwhile.

Not a huge restaurant by any means, you’ll want to arrive early to avoid waiting 30 or more minutes for a table.

As far as the menu goes, you won’t want to share the fish tacos with anyone; or the coconut fried shrimp.

The pepper seared ahi tuna appatezier is drool worthly, as are the blackened tuna nachos.

Seafood isn’t the only thing on the menu either. Plenty of burgers, wraps and salads to choose from. Lots of vegetarian options as well.

The vibe at Mama Kwan’s is super chill. Owners, waiters, cooks… everyone is super friendly and very laid-back.

There is probably a restaurant somewhere in Hawaii that’s just like this eatery.

Open year-round for lunch and dinner, with reduced hours during the winter months.
