Where To Eat In The Off-Season On The Outer Banks

The off-season is officially here which naturally means things on the Outer Banks are slowing down. Gone is the hustle and bustle of summer and the calm and the still of winter is here. Most local restaurants close during the winter months to recharge for the summer ahead, however, some restaurants stay open. Here’s your go-to list of Outer Banks restaurants that stay open in the off-season.*
