Starting as a 24 seat cafe in 1946, Owens has become the ‘benchmark’ evening dinner restaurant by which all others are measured locally… at all levels, whether it’s quality and freshness of food, its preparation/presentation or the attentiveness with which it’s served. Perhaps operation by the same family for over 65 years has something to do with it? Priced accordingly, you probably owe it to your family to include at least one trip here as part of your Outer Banks vacation tradition. Open nightly for dinner 5pm-9pm.
