Tips for Visiting Kitty Hawk Restaurants
As you enter the Outer Banks from the north over the bridge from Currituck, note that all the restaurants on the right-hand side of the road (the side with the Walmart and Home Depot) are Kitty Hawk restaurants, while those on the left are Southern Shores restaurants. We cover those eateries in the Duck/Southern Shores guide at duckncguide.com. You can learn about all of them on our Southern Shores Restaurants page. As far as location names go, remember that locals call Croatan Highway – aka U.S. Highway 158 – the Bypass, and they refer to Virginia Dare Trail – aka N.C. Highway 12 – as the Beach Road. These names are simpler and easy to remember, and using them will convince all of your Outer Banks savvy.
