Visitors to Hatteras and Ocracoke Islands will simultaneously be visiting the gorgeous Cape Hatteras National Seashore. One of the largest preserved parcels of the Outer Banks, the National Seashore stretches across 70 miles of shoreline, encompassing seven villages on Hatteras Island, and providing visitors with miles of undisturbed, scenic beaches as well as some of the prettiest natural drives on the East Coast.
A local favorite for 25 years, Kelly’s is the one of the few places to go on the Outer Banks where you can have an early dinner, stay for a few drinks and then dance until the wee hours on a wonderful wooden dance floor. Dinner offerings include mouth-watering appetizers like Oysters Rockefeller or Cajun grilled oyster, and entrees like flounder Florentine and honey hickory BBQ ribs. As supporters of Outer Banks Catch, a program that promotes fresh local caught seafood, Kelly’s uses the freshest fish available in seafood dishes that can be fried, grilled, baked or steamed. Chicken, beef, pasta and vegetarian entrees, as well as home-made desserts, are also offered on the large menu. A children’s and tavern menu are also available. Catering is offered for large events, on and off site.
