It was seventeen years ago when a simple philosophy became reality for our oceanfront restaurant in The Corolla Light Resort. Quite simply, we wanted to provide quality and quantity to our guests at a fair price with a view unmatched on the Outer Banks. That dream and committment to excellence has become The Oceanfront Grille at Corolla Light, and is now - after sixteen years - available to the public!

We are located overlooking the Atlantic Ocean within North Carolina's award winning family vacation destination The Corolla Light Resort. For the 11th consecutive year Corolla Light has won the North Carolina Resort Community of the year award presented by the North Carolina Chapter of the Community Association Institute (NCAAI). The NCAAI is the statewide chapter of the national organization, with over 600 resort members in the state.

The Oceanfront Grille at Corolla Light is the only oceanfront restaurant on the Currituck Outer Banks. We invite you to enjoy our spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean and the beautiful pools of the Corolla Light Resort.

While you're here, we suggest you try our signature crabcakes made with jumbo lump crab. We must warn you: our crabcakes are addictive. Once you've tried one, you'll understand why we're known as "Crabcake Heaven".

Those wishing to avoid the potential crabcake addiction may choose from our mouth-watering steaks, plump oysters, fresh tuna or one of our popular seafood or mixed grill combinations.

Children are always welcome at the Oceanfront Grille. The children's menu provides plenty of options, from chicken tenders to PB&J.

After their meal kids can play in our fully equipped game room or search for ghost crabs on the beach - while you relax and enjoy a cocktail, glass of wine or after dinner drink from our full-service bar.

We gladly accommodate large parties, and suggest advance notice for groups of eight or more. Regardless of your parties' size, reservations are encouraged.

We look forward to seeing you at The Oceanfront Grille at Corolla Light.

Best oceanfront view and restaurant on northern banks. We have eaten there off and on just about every year since first opened. Service is always good. Crabcakes are still good. We like their combo ideas where you can mix up your selections. Corolla Light location makes it very convenient for those staying there. A little on the pricey side.
