Best and worst on the Outer Banks

Hey there - definitely go to Kill Devil Grille...not sure what milepost, but it's on Beach Road...it looks like a little diner...but it is way more than that! My boyfriend and I stumbled upon it last summer and to say the least, we were pleasantly surprised! The food...it's awesome! Everything is fresh and delicious. Go on a Wednesday for dinner and bottles of wine are 1/2 price. I have been going to the OBX my entire life & this place is hands down the best place I've eaten at down there. We went again this summer and once again, they did not disappoint! This is a MUST TRY.

We also ate at Reddrum this summer (Beach Road). It was good food...though, the portions were on the small side and it was a little pricey. But it's worth a try.

Do not...I repeat...do not eat at Miller's! I don't know what I was thinking, but I went there this summer and spent a lot of money on a meal that I could've made much better myself with my eyes closed and little to no cooking skills. (yes, it WAS that bad!) The atmosphere is overly touristy and "blah", I could barely stand it. I only ate there because it was late and I was very hungry. What a waste of money.

Another place (for breakfast) you should try is Jolly Roger...also on Beach Road. It's just great breakfast food...my family has made it a tradition to go there.

For a good burger, hit up Snowbird on Beach Road. It's actually known for it's 24+ flavors of ice cream, but the burgers were always really good there. I don't know if it's changed though..I haven't gotten a burger there in a few years.

Also, for live crabs....I recommend buying them at Sugar Shack on the Nags Head/Manteo Causeway. This summer the place I always used to get them at (Austin's) and another place near our rental home were both sold out. Also the owner/manager of Austin's is not exactly friendly. Sugar Shack was not sold out of crabs, the service was great, and turns out..they're less expensive!

Hope this helps :-)

Don't waste your time and money. This place is overrated. I am a huge fan of garlic and their food had WAY TOO MUCH garlic in everything...salads, appetizers, entrees. I could barely eat my dinner & my stomach was upset afterwards. My boyfriend went with me, it was his first time there, and needless to say..he agreed with me..and we've never been back since. You're much better off looking for a REAL italian restaurant (not a chain) that knows how to make decent food.

I highly recommend Trieste in Prospect Park. It's a no-frills, down home italian joint with GOOD FOOD. My boyfriend and I are regulars. He loves the mussels and marinara and just about everything else on the menu. I tend to stick to spaghetti, ravioli and meatballs. We're never disappointed when we eat at Trieste.

Great dinner in Media?

I don't plan on going back to Brodeur's....the service is slow at lunch and the food is mediocre. Nothing special about this place. I especially recommend avoiding it on New Year's Eve...you will pay a lot of money for disappointing ambiance, food, and service. I do however recommend experiencing Media itself on New Year's Eve...it's really cool to see everyone out in the street counting down to the new year.
