Blue Moon Beach Grill

Top choice seafood in Outer Banks

Would it be wrong to write an ode to a side of french fries? Because Lord Almighty, the lightly spiced fries at this casual hot spot are the stuff of sonnets and monologues. And we haven't even mentioned the BLT with seared mahi-mahi, applewood bacon, local Currituck tomatoes and a jalapeño rémoulade for slathering.

Other choices include seafood sandwiches, burgers and voodoo pasta. The strip-mall view won't inspire poetry, but the friendly staff, come-as-you-are atmosphere and upbeat play list – Elvis's 'Jailhouse Rock' – will invigorate your spirit for sure.
