Noosa Beach Grille
There are a lot of restaurants in the Outer Banks that focus on seafood, but also do a bit of everything. Noosa Beach Grill is one of those spots, but they actually execute everything on its all-over-the-place menu well, and it’s a bit less packed than the classic joints along Croatan Highway. The shrimp and grits are rich without being too heavy or greasy, and the fish and chips are perfectly golden and salty. They really hammer in the “beach grill theme,” from the hippie van logo to the cocktails like Tropical Depression, their boozy take on a rum punch. The versatile menu and cozy indoor space mean it’s also a great backup option for lunch, dinner, or drinks if your outdoor plans get rained out.
