5,000 RUNS DOWN THE BEACH *ANOTHER OBX BOOK LAUNCH - Posted By: Limpy on 3/18/2019
Hi, (and this is different than the much-better, actually-researched book by Sarah Downing.) I think this crew might laugh at a few of these things. In any case, wanted to say thank you to this board for helping to keep our beaches nicer, safer places all these years. No one educates guests on beach etiquette as well as this community. print: www.amazon.com/dp/1717884083 ebook: www.amazon... [Read Full Post]

A RARE APPEARANCE ON THE FORUM... - Posted By: Will on 3/18/2019
Here's a little know fact: JillD is my wife of 21 years! Our anniversary was this past Thursday. I introduced her (a Florida girl) to the Outer Banks way back in the 1990's. The funny thing is, the post (linked below) is only her 43rd post since 2006. I guess you can tell who spends more time on the OBC. It was a big surprise to see her message and I hope she keeps it up. https://www.obxconn... [Read Full Post]

HATTERAS SOL DELI & CAFE - Great food
Have celebrated a birthday there in June for the last three years and have never been disappointed. Not sure that we have a favorite menu item as we have enjoyed everything we've ever had. Yes, a bit noisy, but that is to be expected anytime a place is crowded as it can sometimes be. At least there is a sound side deck one can enjoy while waiting for a seat or even as an after dinner place to chil... [Read Full Review]

HATTERAS SOL DELI & CAFE - Great food and views
Hatteras Sol dining is a great choice for a nice harbor water view and delicious food. They have two bars, one outside which provides a beautiful sunset view. Good appetizers and key lime pie too. I really enjoyed their take on Shrimp and Grits with cheesy fried grit cakes and a fusion of Little Italy marinara & New Orleans spicy sauce, finished with Applewood bacon and scallions. Give them a... [Read Full Review]

COLINGTON CAFE THE - Anniversary Dinner
My brother and his wife took us here for our 45th Anniversary last night. The She Crab Bisque was excellent. I had the Shrimp and Crabcake Combo - delicious. My wife had the Filet which she really enjoyed. My brother gave thumbs up to his Shrimp and Scallop Tropicale as did my sister-in-law for her Chicken. We all enjoyed the Berry Cobbler with Ice Cream.

Had a wonderful lunch here yesterday. My wife had a Chicken Salad sandwich and I had the BLTC - Bacon, lettuce, tomato and cheese sandwich with a Modelo Especiale. Excellent!
