Places to Eat
Island dining can be as casual or chic as you choose. From home-style southern breakfasts to fine dining with international flair, Ocracoke is proud of our collection of unique and passionate chefs. 

Ask about the Catch of the Day! Ocracoke's working watermen supply our restaurants daily with the bounty from their nets and pots – fish, shrimp, clams, and crabs. Local chefs use traditional and creative recipes to showcase our fine fresh-caught seafood. 

Not a seafood lover? Enjoy the best burgers, sandwiches, baked goods, gourmet treats, prime rib, BBQ, pizza, pasta.... Ocracoke has it all. 

You can eat indoors or out, on a screened porch tucked under the trees, or at the water's edge. Carry-outs make mealtime quick and easy while you're out and about in the village. And even our finest eateries offer their menu items to-go, so you can picnic on the beach or relax back at your own hotel or cottage. 

And don't forget dessert! Ocracoke fig cake is the local delicacy to try, and ending the day with a stroll through the village to get ice cream just can't be beat.
