Corolla




We've stayed here twice before. Not our favorite choice but because of BN we were proactive. Please suggest the best restaurants or things to do. We actually just come to enjoy the beach but any low key activities would be appreciated and we love to eat and (drink).

New restaurant in Timbuk 2 called Mama Easleys. Really good food, fast casual, I think one of the best fish sammies I have ever had. We also do a take home meal from Corolla Village BBQ. Dockside North in the Food Lion shop center has excellent seafood. We got precooked local shrimp twice and loved every bite, just make some cocktail sauce and add salad. The butcher shop in the same shop center has very nice selection of grilling meats and excellent ground beef. Philly Cheesesteaks n Subs have the best cheesesteaks, same shop center. Things we like to do: kayak in the sound, bike, mini golf by the YMCA, day trips to 4x4, shop. We love Corolla, hope will too.

Where's this?


RE: Corolla




Calicoskies hit most of my favorite places. The butcher block is great - you can get sandwiches, pints or growlers of craft beer, great meat and fresh seafood too. The Beer Garden is as low key as it get and they have live music throughout the week. Philly Cheesesteak went under new ownership last year and is waaaay better now in my opinion (and I liked it before too). The new ropes course in Corolla is a lot of fun - maybe not low key but if you are looking for something different for some of your adventurous guests give it a try.

Shocked no one started with NorthBanks Raw bar as a suggestion. Probably because they want to keep it to themselves, as the place is JAMMED during the season. Great place for offseason too as they only close for the month of January give or take a week.

Limited but nice craft beer selection. Good mixed drinks.

It's always our first night out and we order the Seafood combo. Takes about 30 minutes to eat.

I am sorry, it's not a Y, that's just what my kids call it. It's an athletic center and there is an all grass mini golf course right there.

You can't beat First Light for breakfast. Lighthouse bagels has good breakfast sandwiches as well. When we switched there from Hatteras after Irene since the island was closed on our week we cooked in the house just about every night but ate breakfast out alot, so I don't have alot of dinner suggestions. We did eat at Sunset Grill in Duck, and Agave Roja. We weren't overly excited about either. Though I had breakfast at Sunset on a different trip and enjoyed that.

Corolla Cantina in the Corolla Light Shoppes area. Love their fish tacos- and dog friendly. Also the Corolla Beer Garden between Twiddy and Winks. Fun to sit under the tree and have a few beers. Didn't have food when we were there, but we got a pizza in the shops nearby.

IMO - best places for dinner are North Banks and Mike Dianna's. Both are somewhat expensive but really tasty. It's also so close to Duck we include Paper Canoe, Red Sky and Aqua in our recommendation list.

Low key things to do - walk around the Whalehead Club after dinner to see the sunset, same with Tim Buck II (lots of places to shop), and tour the Currituck lighthouse and keepers house.
