Fish Heads Bar and Grill is THE tiki bar of the Outer Banks.

We are a family friendly restaurant & bar, where you can grab lunch, dinner, or just hang for few brews. Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, we are one of the few places with oceanfront dining! Our seating is open air with a small amount of tables under a roof only closed in by clear curtains on foul weather days. We have numerous tables outside on the deck with umbrellas for shade when the wind isn’t blowing them away! Check out the music calendar for the entertainment schedule during the summer season.   

At Fishheads, beer is kind of our thing. We have 40 craft draft brews as well as a large selection of bottle domestics and imports. Wine by the glass or bottle are also available. We even have introduced Sake Cocktails, inspired by a Bloody Mary, Margarita, & Painkiller.
