Most vacationers consider their pet to be a part of their family, and as a result, thousands of Outer Banks visitors bring their furry family members in tow year after year. While planning a vacation that includes everyone in the family, including a beloved dog or other pet, can initially seem a little daunting, on the Outer Banks, it's actually an easy affair.
Nothing beats the glow of a nice suntan, so why not put that to use, get a dolled up and head to Ocean Boulevard for some fine cocktails and gourmet dishes? The restaurant features a quiet and classy atmosphere great for a romantic evening. You can either sit in the restaurant for a candlelit meal, or on the outdoor patio to enjoy a fresh salty breeze and the sound of the neighboring sea.
Ocean Boulevard offers an extensive fine dining menu, including nightly dinner specials usually featuring fresh seafood. Start with the Bistro baked Clams Antipasti or Seven Lettuce salad. Do not forget to save room for a delicious entrée like the Local Jumbo Lump Crabcake or Pan Roasted Duck Breast.
Ocean Boulevard also features an amazing wine list. Ask your server to pair your meal with a bottle of OBX’s finest, and you will not be disappointed. The bar also offers a great martini menu, if that is more your taste. If you choose to sit on the patio, the restaurant features live music everyday outside from 6pm-9pm. The indoor martini bar stays open until 2 am, as dinner service ends at 10. Ocean Boulevard frequently hosts musicians that play late night jam sessions. Be sure to check out the music schedule while you are in town for some great local music sure to delight your ear.
So come by, leave the kids at home, sport your new glow and nice clothes, order yourself a great martini and sit back and enjoy either some great tunes or the natural sounds of the ocean. What a perfect way to end a day of hard vacationing.
