The Bodie Island Lighthouse, (pronounced "Body") is located just south of the town of Nags Head and Whalebone Junction, where Highway 158, Highway 64, and NC Highway 12 intersect. Visitors travelling towards Hatteras Island can't help but notice the black and white horizontal striped structure, peaking out over a line of dense cedar trees on the soundside.
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.
