Jack Browns has all the beer, burgers, fries and fried oreos you could ever want. I believe they have over 100 different types of beer on hand with 7 rotating draft beers every week.

They may be known for the best burgers in OBX, but they also make the best homestyle breakfast. They have a few tables inside with a bar and lots of outdoor seating including a rooftop with a view of the ocean. If you choose to eat outside be sure to go inside and grab a menu to your left and let a server know. Don’t let their slogan scare you away “Locals Welcome, Tourists Tolerated” you will be met with a friendly staff.

Sightseeing

If you have never seen a lighthouse in person I suggest you go see this. Its 156ft tall with 200 steps and only 20 mins away. Must buy tickets to walk to the top of lighthouse or you can walk the grounds of the lighthouse for free. There is a path that leads to a sitting area over the water on the left side of the lighthouse.
