Every vacation destination has its own unique draw to potential visitors, whether it's a national monument, a fantastic shopping or dining scene, or an exotic locale that's meant for total relaxation. Many newcomers to the Outer Banks are surprised to learn that this destination has all of these attributes and more, and it can be hard to narrow down the overflowing list of "must-sees" or "must-dos" that have to be squeezed into a 1-2 week OBX vacation.
Dubbed a “pirate hideaway," Pamlico Jack’s has fun with the buccaneer theme while still serving up a tasty meal in a beautiful setting. With its location on the Roanoke Sound, it’s pretty much guaranteed that most dinner guests will see a gorgeous sunset. The restaurant serves a full range of appetizers like Atlantic calamari, Caribbean black bean cake and lobster mac ‘n’ cheese. Plus there’s a modest offering of soups and salads (how can you resist the “Walk the plank wedge of lettuce?”)Entrees include fish, chicken, beef and seafood dishes, and even a vegetarian offering. Or if you want something lighter, there are sandwiches, BBQ and burgers. There is also a raw and steamed menu, a children’s menu, specialty drinks and a dessert tray to choose from. The bar offers entertainment in the summer and stays open until about 2 a.m.
