If you don't see that info, you can be reasonably sure that the restaurant is temporarily closed. We are updating this information regularly until we get the go ahead to open our restaurant doors!

 

If you love dining out, then Kill Devil Hills is the place for you. Within the town limits, you’ll find more than 30 different Kill Devil Hills restaurants. Each has their signature specialties and flare, but a common ground for almost all of them is the fresh seafood that’s locally caught and readily available. If you dine around, you’ll see it on lunch, dinner, appetizer and even breakfast menus.

One thing that never ceases to surprise or amaze it is the creativity of the cuisine at Kill Devil Hills restaurants. The talented chefs in Kill Devil Hills frequently develop imaginative fusion dishes, sampling international flavors with delicious results.

Expand Horizons at Kill Devil Hills Restaurants

One thing that we love about Kill Devil Hills restaurants is how so many of them are locally owned and operated. It gives them the ability to capture the area’s influences in the food that they serve, whether that means using seasonal ingredients sourced from the region, offering tried and true Outer Banks dishes or embracing home-style country cuisine. A popular move for visitors is to branch out from the familiar chain restaurants they find at home and instead discover something new. (If you must have a fast food fix, however, Kill Devil Hills is home to what’s affectionately known as French Fry Alley by the locals. It’s the stretch of the Bypass between Mileposts 9 and 11 where several fast food chains are located.) We haven’t included them here because you’re already familiar with what they offer. Wherever you go in this town, you’ll find that casual attire is perfectly acceptable, even in fine dining establishments.
