This elegant establishment opened in 1995 and gained a reputation as one of the finer establishments in Duck. Unbelievable views are available from the soundfront dining room, where tablecloths and cut flowers grace each table and crystal glasses sparkle during sunset hours. Upstairs a separate lounge has a full bar with an extensive wine list. The menu changes daily and seasonally to incorporate new offerings. Swan Cove uses all local produce, seafood, and fresh herbs and specializes in low-fat, light cooking. Entrees may include duck, pastas, wild game, veal, baby back ribs, three kinds of Outer Banks fish, seafood bouillabaisse over saffron fettuccine, tenderloin steaks, and fresh salads.
A great bet for starters is shrimp stuffed with gouda, wrapped in bacon, and served with smoky barbecue sauce. And for dessert, try choosing between a chocolate layer cake, peanut butter pie, and seasonal fresh fruits drizzled with fabulous sauces. Swan Cove is open seven days a week in season. Call for off-season hours. There is a children's menu. Reservations are highly recommended.
