One of the newer restaurants to take the northern Outer Banks by storm, Pete’s Pour house serves burgers, fries, fresh seafood, salads and many of the comfort foods that are easily washed down by an ice cold beer. The wings at Pete’s Pour House are not to be missed!

Serving lunch and dinner daily, the cozy pub-style restaurant is a great place to watch sporting events, particularly football. Over 20 flat-screen TVs ensure your event or game will be on for you to enjoy. 

If you’re not watching TV inside, you might want to enjoy the nice weather out on the large second story deck, which has tables and chairs. With Pete’s Pour House, you get a great sports bar atmosphere with high-quality and fresh food.

In addition to a selection of over 40 different beers, Pete’s Pour House has an extensive wine selection and a full bar. A well-rounded menu of fresh seafood (including raw bar choices and fish tacos), steaks, pasta and sandwiches are offered at reasonable prices.

For dessert, check out the Hershey’s hand-dipped ice cream stand inside the restaurant. 

The bar features happy hour specials and live entertainment during the summertime months.

While new to the Outer Banks, Pete’s Pour House’s owner is experienced in serving the area. He has owned and operated Uncle Ikes Sandbar & Grill in Corolla for over three years.

Jimmy's Seafood Buffet

Jimmy's Seafood Buffet

Home of the Crab Leg & Lobster Buffet for over 24 years! Jimmy’s Seafood Buffet is a great stop for an all you can eat affordable dinner extravaganza. The buffet offers over 100 different items. It even serves Jumbo Alaskan crab legs and Jumbo steamed shrimp, something you will not find on any other buffet in the OBX. The buffet offers a variety of seafood and non seafood options. Try some of Jimmy’s seafood options and load your plate with blackened tuna, Louisiana crawfish, steamed scallops and mussels, fried oysters and deviled crabs. Not in the mood for seafood? Fill your plate with steak, pineapple glazed ham, fried chicken, BBQ ribs, and fettuccini Alfredo to name a few. The buffet also offers a kid section. Let your kids load their plates with chicken tenders, mac and cheese, and corn dog nuggets. Don’t forget dessert! The buffet also offers soft serve ice cream and a plethora of baked goods. 


It’s been 22 years since Jimmy’s Seafood Buffet opened its doors for the first time. Since that inaugural summer, the goal has remained the same: provide customers with a tasty, fresh array of seafood full of Caribbean flavor.


Elizabeth Dowless and her husband Jerry had always worked in restaurants in the Outer Banks, so when the opportunity to open Jimmy’s Seafood Buffet with a couple of friends arose, it was an easy yes. The Dowlesses bought out the business in 2003, excited to turn Jimmy’s into an Outer Banks staple. When Jerry passed away later that year, Dowless knew she wanted to continue pursuing their dream on her own.


Dowless went all in on the concept of a fresh, flavorful seafood buffet and her hard work paid off. Jimmy’s Seafood Buffet is a beloved fixture of Outer Banks dining, with customers returning year after year for the fresh fare.


“Customers keep in contact with me throughout the winter. I get people every day asking me when we’re opening for the season, and customers book their vacations around our opening,” Dowless says. “I absolutely love getting to see familiar faces come back to see us each year. I love seeing them lose their minds over the buffet! Their excitement is what I love most about my job.”
