Emerald Isle lunch and dinner suggestions Mid May

We're staying in a OF house in Emerald Isle the 3rd week of May. We've been in the area (Swansboro to Beaufort) a couple times recently looking at properties. Are there any must visit lunch or dinner spots you'd recommend? I have a couple of go to's, but I'm always looking for more.

I don't know if they still have it, but Emerald Isle had a discussion board like this of its own.

If anyone has a link, I'd appreciate it. The only thing I've been able to find is a lightly used Trip Advisor section.

This thread is a year old, but might still be relevant.

I looked for the bookmark and can't find it now. I know there are Facebook groups, if youre a FB person. I don't think they have a restaurant update group like OBX has, but they might.

Check out Gaffer’s. They moved to Emerald Isle after Dorian. We miss them here.

Thanks Stephen and John. i'm starting my list. We've stayed in the area a couple times last year, but only for a couple days each time. Gaffer’s looks like my kind of of place...

Thanks. We had an accepted offer last November, but it was a divorced couple and one of them backed out. It was a nice property, so hopefully they list it again. Was think about writing them a letter.

We've looked at a couple other properties, but nothing has really been "it". We'll just keep looking.

What bank allows someone to lock in a rate for more than 90 days?

Why are you guys so concerned about my rate? Thanks, but I'd prefer if you gave me suggestions on places to eat in that area instead (what this thread is about). My rate is just fine and my search for a property continues.

If you're just trying to torpedo yet another thread and get it deleted, well, that just sad. No worries though, I got some good suggestions already.

Just flag and ignore is your MO. But your claim of a 6 month old rate lock caught my eye. Enjoy your day.

Yup, Sea Urchin (Devil Dog, Donkey Hotay, TimmyT) and Greg MD are just trying to kill the thread. Typical trolling.

And no, I'm not going to explain my rate. I really don't care if trolls believe me or not.

Leaving Saturday morning! Excited to get back to the beach and do some fishing!

I only casually lurk and occasionally post on this board because the OBX is my favorite place on planet earth...but this Timmy dude makes it unbearable. No need to douche up every thread, my guy. I remember hopping on here over 10 years ago and it was full of people who enjoyed talking about the banks...not insufferable trolls. Not trying to dunk on the owner...but the mods here are pretty useless.

LMAO at the experts who don't know about an Extended Rate Lock Mortgage.

And they are the one's who want to tell US HOW TO LIVE OUR LIVEs. LOL.

Carry on Timmy!

2 more sleeps and we hit the road. I've been following the fishing reports and the surf/pier bite is pretty good. This cool week probably stunted it a little, but next week looks great.

We'll eat out a couple times, but I'm hoping to have some fresh fish a couple of nights.

Hope you have a great time and report back! We are hoping to explore other beach options but for now we will live vicariously through you!

Asking a simple question is trying to kill a thread?
Ease up Karen, your slip is showing. Enjoy your day.

Looking forward to a trip report and pictures. We are visiting Emerald Isle for the first time in October. We also went ahead and booked a house for Spring break.
