Like our beloved Outer Banks, at Kelly’s Outer Banks Restaurant we have something for everyone. Our menus satisfy those with the most discerning tastes to those who enjoy simple pleasures. We strive to use only the freshest ingredients and take pride in serving North Carolina seafood featuring Outer Banks Catches. As a coastal restaurant we excel in seafood fare, however, we appreciate the palates that prefer non-seafood selections including pastas and vegetarian entrees. You will find delicious offerings including Iowa Beef, Pork, Chicken, Pastas, and Vegetarian. Kelly’s is open for dinner service every night from 4:30-10:00pm.


Kelly’s Restaurant is offering both a $20 3-course and a $35 3-course menu for Spring Restaurant Week 2017.
