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.
Located at the Nags Head Golf Links, Player’s Grille is not just for golfers. Anyone is welcome to dine at this classy, but comfortable restaurant with a full bar. Not only does it have a lovely setting, the Grille itself is open and airy, with large windows that provide great views of the sunset over Roanoke Sound. The extensive menu includes a good variety of sandwiches and wraps and the ever-popular fish tacos.
There are no less than five different salads to choose from, and there are lunch specials every day. Locals love the Sunday brunch, which offers generous portions of all the favorites until 1 p.m. Player’s Grille is also open on Friday nights for Happy Hour ---ask about the drink specials ---and dinner from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Since it’s off the beaten course, so to speak, this restaurant has a little bit less of the hustle and bustle during the summer season than more centrally located spots. It’s a nice place to take a breather and enjoy a good meal or interesting conversation over a cool drink.
