If you're looking for a great place for dinner, try The Dunes. It's easy to find with ample parking. Service was good and the seafood was excellent.

We decided to try the Dunes for a Sunday breakfast and are glad we did! The breakfast bar has a very wide selection of delicious items and we definitely didn't go away hungry! The service and the overall atmosphere are first-class and we would definitely recommend it.

I had breakfast here Chose scrambled eggs and scrapple with hash browns. the scrapple had a strange taste to it I have had it at home and other places so I know what it should taste like. The hash browns were tiny diced and dry no onion which I asked for.

We didn't do the buffet. Waitress was great. Country ham was a little salty. Hot cakes were great! Coffee nice and fresh

Went there this morning. My wife had the French toast I got the breakfast buffet. The service was great waitress was friendly and attentive. My only issue really was no eggs on the buffet. I did make 2 trips up thinking maybe they were making more. The food was really good though loved the cream chip beef, French toast sticks,... More

My Husband and I have been here several times for breakfast. Saturdays and Sundays they have a breakfast buffet and we have also ordered from the menu for breakfast. We have not been for lunch or dinner, but I did hear that they have good choices then as well.

Description
This local, Outer Banks restaurant is now in it's 34th anniversary season. That's probably why it's called a 'Nags Head Tradition' by locals. Open for breakfast and dinner daily. Weekends - spring and fall - and daily in the summer season, there's a robust fruit and breakfast bar plus some whopping good breakfast platters. Specialties are real southern cooking - like fried chicken. Also a specialty - local, Outer Banks seafood - broiled, fried, and always good. Steaks and prime rib round out the dinner menu. The "R" Bar is great for a late night meal or a special drink. And if all this isn't enough, there's Roxie's Retail - great, flirty finds for your home or wardrobe. It's a family run organization that is glad to welcome locals and vacationers alike.
