Solid Bar Food Recommended by Locals – When visiting Kitty Hawk on a cross-country trip this summer (check out our trip blog, "A Mini & A Map"), we asked for a dinner recommendation from the front desk staff at the Day's Inn on the beach in Kill Devil Hills. Both people at the desk recommended Awful Arthur's as a place with solid seafood, and a place that embodies what the Outer Banks is all about. Instead of waiting for a table, we ate at the bar. The bartender was entertaining and funny, plus watching him shuck oysters was great. The broiled scallops were very good, the hush puppies were average, and the fries were good. The fried soft-shelled crabs were a little mushy. Overall, the dinner was enjoyable and we'd definitely go back (we'd just skip the soft-shelled crabs next time).

Yummy Oysters! This is the place to stop in for oysters when visiting the Outer Banks. The prices are reasonable, and they are kid friendly.

Kid's are happy here. A seafood bar that keeps the kids entertained. This place gets very crowded. The bar has all the electronic games to keep the kids happy while you are waiting for a table though. My daughter told me to highly recommend the creme brulee.

what a name for a restaurant, huh? With a name like "Awful Author's" I had slight reservations about trying this place - but sometimes the names just make you want to come on in and try it. My husband loves their Oysters so anytime he wants oysters this is where we go when we are at the beach. The prices aren't bad either. They also do have a kids menu.

Awful Arthurs Oyster Bar The whole family enjoys eating here. Great Seafood. They are located right across the street from the ocean, so we usually go to the beach after we eat. The only issue I have with this place is they still allow smoking! It can get pretty smoky in there because it is a small restaurant.
