Blue Water Grill and Raw Bar

Places to Eat in Roanoke IslandBecause what’s a visit to Roanoke Island without first hitting the seafood?

Located right on the marina, this eatery features a lunch and dinner menu teeming with the latest catches offshore, in all sorts of creative variations.

Think everything from shrimp and country ham bucatini pasta, to Baja fish tacos.



If you’re looking for a more upscale experience, yet still want that rustic Outer Banks charm, then set 1587 as your destination.

Its fare can best be described as worldly, or global, as its menu has everything from Chinese pork belly, to New Zealand rack of lamb. There’s truly something for everyone at 1587, providing you with an elegant and relaxed dining experience.

The Hungry Pelican

What’s not to love in a name like that?

With years of experience on the waterfront, The Hungry Pelican specializes in two things: deli sandwiches, and ice cream. The sandwiches mirror New York heroes, with plenty of options to choose from, and the ice cream is just one of the incredible dessert options available here.

Stripers Bar and Grille

Finally, no trip to Roanoke Island would be complete without a stop at Stripers. This award-winning institution blends the traditional with the modern, in an innovative and delicious way. The best part is the ‘catch and cook,’ where you can take your catch of the day, choose a style of grilling, and sit back and enjoy your hard work!
