You are here


Generations of seasoned travelers to Corolla have ensured that only the top establishments survive, and because of this, there is no shortage of great dining in Corolla. All but a small percentage of the restaurants are locally owned and operated. Because of this, you won’t get that “been there before” feeling when stepping into one of our local eateries.

From catered feasts to quick and easy deli snacks, you’re sure to enjoy what we’ve got to offer! Offering everything from fresh local seafood to burgers and salads, there is something for everyone here in Corolla! You’ll immediately notice the prevalence of seafood on our local menus. Why? The Corolla area is famous for its fresh fish, crab, clams, shrimp, scallops, oysters, and mussels. You won’t find preformed, months ago frozen fish on your plate in the Outer Banks - our local chefs love to prepare the region’s finest fresh catches!

Not hungry for seafood? You’ll also find fresh regional produce, tasty pastas, and a variety of dishes prepared with the meat of your choice. Whatever you choose to dine on while staying in Corolla, you’re sure to be pleased with the attention to detail that goes into preparing every meal.

Local establishments favor a casual atmosphere, even in the finest restaurants. A polo shirt and khakis or a comfortable sundress are perfectly acceptable, and maybe even a bit formal for some of our restaurants! We hope you find our Corolla dining guide helpful!
