Atmosphere. I quite like the atmoshphere of a spacious room with a great back grass area with live music and a place for the kids to run around. It is a cross between a college bar, a modern restaurant and a barn or silo building. Interesting and comfortable.

Quality. Good quality, except for the beer which was exceedingly average except for Sledgehammer and Tongs which was well above average.

Service. Very good indeed. Every one was kind, patient and responsive. The waiter brought out a "rush order" for the kids within about 3 minutes.

Selection. Five "house" beers and one guest tap (the very good Allagash White), along with lots and lots of bottles means that the selection was not extensive but fair.

Food. This is where this place really shines. Simply exemplary food. I had the sesame seared Tuna with wasabi mashed potatoes and it was excellent.

Value: All things considered, a reasonable value. (934 characters)

Came here for lunch on my last day down in the Outer Banks. The inside was pretty cool. The brewing equipment was visible through a series of glass windows, but the exposed metal ceiling and ventilation pipes running along the walls gave the whole place a sort of unfinished feel. We were seated at a table near the bar. Our server was prompt and attentive. I got a flight of 4 beers. My overall impression of the beers was that the brewers weren't crazy about sticking to style, with the exception of the Hefe, which was far and away the best of the bunch. My only complaint about the food was that brats on my sandwich were a little tough. Still, everything else about the meal was good. The beers and service were good. It's worth a stop, but in my experience there were just a few small details that kept the experience from being amazing. (843 characters)

The Outer Banks Brewing Station is a small, still relatively new, establishment. The outside gives the feel of an old dusty farmhouse with containment tanks and windmills. Inside the bar they have a little bit of information about the brewery and how it operates. It is entirely dependent on wind energy (hence the windmill outside), it costs about 50 grand to put one of those windmills in, and it pays for itself in about 10 years. Inside, against the back wall, they have glass windows peering into their very small brewery. I would have liked to see and read more on how everything works, but it looks like they were more focused on the restaurant side of the business. At the bar it was a little difficult to get the attention of the staff. They weren't overly knowledgeable of the kinds of beers they made and were a little snobby. However, the selection was pretty good, having a lot of in house beers that I've never tried before. I had the sampler which was four, six oz beers of your choice which was pretty reasonably priced. I didn't try their food, but was impressed with most of the different beers that I tried. Overall this place was interesting and entertaining. I would recommended this place to tourists and beer enthusiasts alike. (1,250 characters)

Have wanted to stop here for a long time and was glad to find decent beer in this part of the country. Big tourist area so I was'nt expecting much along the lines of drinkable beer. I tried three beers and found them to be quite good compared to many other breweries in the area. The food was very good and I will stop there again for the beer and food. The menu is'nt to extensive but what I tried was outstanding. The flounder, crab cakes and fries are far above average and well worth the trip. Wait staff seemed somewhat aloof leaving me the impression they are geared toward the masses versus beer geeks like me. This looks like an old barn inside with the tall ceilings. Overall this is a good place to stop for a beer and something to eat. (746 characters)

Stopped by a couple of times to check out the local brew pub action on my vacation last week.

You would swear this place is a church, I drove by it three times the first night as it just blends right into the background, when they say "look for the windmill" ... turn RIGHT there...

Decor is typical/hacky brewpub, somewhat cold/wood accents with minimal lighting. I have seen a hundred brew pubs with the same look inside, I guess having flying arabian carpets in the dining room makes this slightly different. The bar itself is sleek and nice, it is also long and snakes from the dance floor/dining area all the way to the back door/smoking zone.

The bartenders were competent if not just going through the paces, they didn't seem enthused about the beers (maybe it was the time of year). They were prompt and friendly enough.

The beers were pretty lackluster, not bad per se but not one of the house beers was a stunner (I had the sampler - $7 plus others). The best of the home bunch was the kolsch, I found it to be a really nice example of the style. The ESB was so over the top hopped it was just over kill. I love hoppy beers but pairing high alpha with ESB... yeah, it's trendy but I would rather have good. The best beer on tap was the guest beer - Duck Rabbit Milk Stout... fashizzlle, it was fantastic. Pints ran $4.50 which is reasonable since most of the brews are 5%+ or higher.

Wed night is dance night... ugh.. I guess you have to do what you have to do to make $$$.

If you are staying in Kitty Hawk, Nags Head or Kill Devil Hills it is worth checking out, not worth a long road trip though. (1,614 characters)

Seeing as I am new to BA, I figured I should review my local brew pub first.

The Outer Banks Brew Station is a place I love to go sometimes and hate to go other times depending on what is happening. They always have a variety of attractions, and they change it up all the time. One night its a dance club, another a punk show, oftentimes there is Reggae. The menu and beers are the same way. Always changing. Odds are you will find something here you like.

If you like food they have a good menu. If you like partying, well they do a lot of that too. Wednesday night is "Ladies Night" and it brings in people from all over. The wait time for a drink can be longer than their ridiculously long bar.

If you are going to check out the beers they have a sampler that lets you pick four. Its fun and a good value.

They change their beers all the time. There is no telling whats going to be on tap, but you will find one you like. (929 characters)

stopped by for a late lunch,

wife and I ate a light lunch at the bar,
they were out of the wheat ale, so I had the brown and the Altimeter,

both were very good, very drinkable, avg abv,
the brown was a bit lighter than what I'm used to, but delicious,
the Altimeter had the bitterness of a good IPA w/o the hops, different, but good

lunch was great, served timely,
the staff was very attentive, and or waiter/bartender was very knowledgeable about beer, he even let me sample the stout and red ale,

overall a very nice place, we will return (550 characters)

Stopped in here the other night for a few ticks and a few games of cornhole during my recent trip to OBX (I've gone to OBX at least once every year for my entire life, even since I've been marooned out west).

A great ambiance at this place. Both times I've been here, they've had a live band playing. This time it was a pretty good reggae band from the reggae hotbed of Washington, DC. Nice large indoor area and a huge outdoor area where you can play cornhole and play on some weird playground thing, if you're drunk enough to do so. Unfortunately you sometimes have to PAY for this ambiance - there was a $5 cover charge last time I went.

Now you know I'm always the guy you can count on to give you the scoop on the cougar scene, even now that I'm engaged. OBX is not exactly a young area, and there are plenty of 40-something cougs on the prowl. If you're not a complete tool, expect to get hit on, especially if you're a champion beer ticker like myself, since women can't resist the allure of a guy like that. I had a rabid pack of cougs approach me (well, they probably weren't any older than me, but still). A couple of them were rather large specimens, so I had to be very tactful in my backing away. I had beers to tick and cornhole to play.

Anyway, I digress. The beers here are hit-or-miss. Some are very mediocre, whereas others, like the Stormy Roses Stout, are excellent. Beers can be served in samplers of about 4oz per beer, which is ideal for ticking.

The place is a little understaffed and pretty busy on summer nights, so my advice is to order several beers at once when you can get a bartender's attention.

Food is pretty good. Nothing's going to blow you away, but it's above average for such an establishment.

Prices are about what you'd expect. Not particularly high or low.

Finally, one good convenience of this place is that there are often several cabs waiting outside from about midnight to 2am to take your plastered ass home.

Nice place, especially for OBX. I'll be back next time. (2,019 characters)

Located at MP 8.5 on the main road in KDH.

The location really has two personalities. During the day and early evening, it's a great place to bring the family. Turns into a great bar in the late evenings, with very nice live music.

5-7 beers on tap usually, representing a good range of styles. IPA and stout are usally good choices.

Food runs the gamut from bar apps to fairly sophisticated entrees. Been here 15 or so times and have not had a bad meal. Service is attentive without being obtrusive.

Added a playground area out back. Very nice when traveling with the family to sit out there and enjoy a draft.

Well worth a stop or two during your OBX vacation. (667 characters)

Stopped in a few times while on vacation. A very neat and interesting brew pub. Nice calm and relaxing atmosphere (if you have lunch there). Not much on tap to choose from, but all pretty decent brews in there own right. Tried the sampler and enjoyed the brown ale and lemon grass wheat. The lemon grass wheat is very refreshing and an interesting take on the style. Growlers are reasonably priced and a very neat souvenir. The waitresses and extremely nice and very helpful. Would like to see more beers available, but understandable due to the size of the brew pub. Check it out while on vacation the food is fantastic and support the brewery as they grow and develop. (670 characters)

When on vacation in the Outer Banks, I went with a group of 7 friends to the Outer Banks Brewing Station. The restaurant was easy to find just off of a major highway, and the architecture looks very nice from the outside like a pre-Industrial barn converted into a Church, that gave a very homey feel before even stepping inside. The interior of the pub looks like any other bar with dark lighting, a very long bar, widescreen TV showing sports, and interesting wall hangings. Very cool was the restroom signage that were labeled "Wonder Woman" and "Superman" with the appropriate action figure displayed next to the sign.

The hostesses were very accommodating when we called ahead and we we arrived giving us a wait-time that was almost spot on. She said 15-20 minutes and that's exactly how long it took. I think this shows that the staff knows how the restaurant runs and they are honest. Even when others, who called ahead, kept complaining about the wait they were very cool in their responses and repeated the wait time estimates that originally gave. The servers and food runners were very polite and answered questions about both beer and food knowledgeably.

The food ranged from good to great. The deep fried hush puppies served with sweet butter were delicious, as were the steamed shrimp (though a tad expensive at $18/lb for 21 counts) and onion rings. The crab cake sandwiches and Portobello panini were fairly well executed and tasty. The fried flounder platter was pretty good, but the batter was too thick and the fish serving size too small.

The beer selection was good, but nothing spectacular for a brew pub. They had an IPA, Tripel, lemongrass Wheat, Alt, Brown, and a few others, but I think a few more beers of more interesting styles would have been good. Perhaps the standards in the South are lower, but in the Northeast and Philadelphia, especially, the standards are set higher by brewpubs such as Nodding Head, Triumph and Iron Hill. The beers I had and tasted were well made and the presence of an Alt beer was a nice touch, but variety is the spice of life.

The ultimate barometer for what one thinks of a place is whether or not you would go again, and I would definitely go to the Outer Banks Brewing Station if I am ever in the OBX again. (2,276 characters)

I went for lunch with my wife. I really liked the layout. There were high ceilings, spacious seating, and windows which looked onto the brewery. We didn't sit at the bar, but the bar had plenty of space, and I imagine that even on crowded nights one could find a seat.

The service was exceptional. The beer was excellent. I had the IPA, which was very good, and my wife had the lemongrass wheat, which was perfect for a summer's day.

The food was also good, and the prices for both food and beer were entirely reasonable. I would highly recommend this brewpub to anyone. (572 characters)

Went for dinner on my dad's birthday. Nice atmosphere. It's a big building and we sat upstairs by the rail looking out over the first floor. About seven beers of which I managed to try just about all of them. Most were quite good and all were above average. I especially liked the IPA, the tripel, and the brown ale. Food was also very good. Everyone in our party got a variety of food and commented on how good it was. Service was fine. Prices are reasonable too. Definitely recommended if on vacation to the outer banks. (522 characters)

Worth the trip for BAers vacationing in the OBX area. Nice atmosphere, we went for lunch on a weekday afternoon, so kind of quiet and empty, but certainly had the build to be a good night spot.

Beer selection was very good - they had 7 different drafts on tap which were for the most part very good. You had to pay a touch extra if you wanted their Belgian style - which I did, but it wasn't the best they had. Sampler lets you pick four beers, all served in six ounce tasting glasses.

Nice enough menu - limited for lunch - for still a lot of good choices. They had a pizza which was probably too cheesy. I had the crab legs which were very tasty. Other guests enjoyed the pulled pork, crab cakes, and steak sandwich. Nice hush puppies and hot pretzels too.

Prices were very reasonable. (790 characters)

The grain silo out front was a giveaway and the entryway had a porch with a bench fashioned from driftwood. Entering, the vestibule featured a mosaic on the floor. Continuing inside, the small restaurant area was to the left with the m.d.s. and the long, curving, snaking, laminated blond wood bar to the right. The far wall, from left to right: Brew House, Water Station, Fermentation Cellar, and Cold Room (with latter behind back bar). Kitchen to extreme right behind snack bar. Also to extreme right and up a couple of steps were two leather couches, football, and a video game. The décor had a very pleasant nautical/island theme making it seem that much more festive. Windmill/wind powered. Go green!

Beers: Olsch (Liberty, Mt. Hood, Perle); Wright Witty; Golden Rogallo; Old Knucklehead Nut Brown; Shipwreck Stout; and Dog House Tripel. (845 characters)

Stopped here for dinner with the wife the other night. This is a really unique cool-looking building. The interior is pretty cool, though it resembles a barn. There's a nice stage for concerts and whatnot. The lighting is on the dark side, but I liked it. There's a nice long bar to the right of the entrance that was packed when we arrived.

They had 6 of their beers available that night. I got a sampler of 4 of them (5 oz pours) for only $6. Not too bad. I tried their Kolsch, Pale Ale, Brown Ale, and their Chocolate Stout. All of them were above average, but I especially enjoyed the Kolsch and the Stout. Very nice brews.

The food was stellar! My wife got the crab bisque and a salad. I got the "Yardbird" chicken sandwich with a salad. The bisque was creamy and smooth with plenty of chunky crab in it. Very good. The salads were good as well as we both really enjoyed their house dressing. My chicken sandwich was good, but nothing special, though they say that's what people go there for. Meh, it was ok.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this place and will definitely make this a regular stop when I get back to this area. Recommend. (1,146 characters)

stopped by this place for dinner while vacationing at the outer banks. the beers were very solid....nothing over the top or anything that made me jump out of my seat, but solid nonetheless. i tried the kolsch, hip hop ipa, and their wit. all pretty spot on for style, and very drinkable, especially at $4.50 a pint. the food and the service were great. i think the only thing i would say that might be considered negative is that i felt like the place was overly dark; could use some better lighting and maybe some paint here and there. not that the place was a dump by any stretch, but i had this weird feeling that it should have been kept up a little better, and i wouldn't mind some more lighting in the brewing areas so that you can see what they've got going on. this didn't taken anything away from me sampling the beers and destroying a well done 9 oz. filet mignon. well done, and would definitely love to hit this place up again. (939 characters)

I visit this place every summer when my family comes to the Outer Banks on vacation. This is a quality brewpub. The food is above average, especially for a brewpub. Not just typical pub fare here. The atmoshphere is sort of ordinary, but it's a brewpub at the beach, I'm not looking for ambience. They have a pretty cool little beer garden out back that I haven't been able to enjoy. My visits are usually in and out for a quick pint or dinner with the family. Looks like a good spot to hang out though. The beer is very good. I had a sampler of 4 beers and was very impressed with the stout and baltic porter. The stout used licorice root in the finish and was very, very good. I also brought a couple of bottles of the Lemongrass Wheat home with me. This is a Hefeweizen brewed with lemon grass and it is very good. Pairs great with hotdogs on the grill when you're at the beach. (881 characters)

I can't say my review completely encompasses the possibilities of this place but I'll try. Went in on a Sunday afternoon and can say that they had sports on TV (a plus), a huge dining area and large bar (a plus) and a couple of couches next to a foosball table (a plus). Really, really chill vibe as there are picnic tables outside and people were playing cornhole. With little action going on for lunch the bartender was nice and waited on us instantly. Had the sampler (4 5 oz. samples for $4) and added the Baltic Porter for a $1.75. That was two beers for under $6 - not bad for a brewpub in a "tourist" area. Unfortunately, the only beer in the place that isn't macro crap is the six beers they have brew themselves (5 in my case - they ran out of the hefe), so after you try them you're either sessioning or SOL. Worse, I did not try the food but everyone there said it is good...I ate at the Red Drum earlier; my bad. If you're in the OBX at least hit this spot once for some beer and food. (997 characters)

My family and I have been going to The Outer Banks every May for nine straight years now, and we stopped in here because, on Sunday nights, the Outer Banks Brewing Station has open mike--itself well worth attending. My wife and I dragged out our nephew on her side out to it, since he's a good guitar player, to get him playing and taking his clear and prodigious musical talent more seriously. What we found was a brew pub that is really nice in atmosphere, has tremendous acoustics, excellent beer, good food, and a local talent well worth hearing in Matt McGuire.

We settled in to some sushi, which was quite good and reasonably priced for the ample portion. I started with the Iron-Binnacle Baltic Porter the OBX Brewing Station makes--good, nice flavors, too small a glass for my tastes since it was 8 oz., probably because of the high ABV (9.3%), about which various states and municipalities can be rather strict. Nice start.

We moved into the emptied dining area away from the bar, where on Matt McGuire, host and musician extraordinaire, took to the guitar and mike with lots of originals. The acoustics were great--I'm convinced it was an old church given the length of it and what looks like an old choir loft converted into a fairly technical sound equipment site--and was nothing short of outstanding. By this point, I was enjoying Matt and his rich, bold voice and guitar with a Wiezenheimer-Weizenbock brewed on-site, which was nothing short of outstanding--rich in malt flavor but excellent, almost light texture given the bock component--great beer.

After a couple others took the stage with some nice folksy tunes, all better in voice than ability with the guitar, our nephew took the stage with some understandable trepidation after Mr. McGuire's sterling four-song performance. He did an original to start, then whipped into some good but hard acoustic Stone Temple Pilots, his guitar sharp and on the money, his voice a bit rough and raspy--mature for a kid of 19. With all due humility, he was easily the best of the four open-mike singers--other than Matt McGuire--and got a good hand from a nice, sizable crowd after his four songs.

In sum, this is a good place to go for food but a great place to go not just for excellent locally brewed beer, but for some good music. Matt McGuire is an OBX musician deserving some wider attention, and the beer at the Outer banks Brewing Station, especially that delicious Weizenbock that a few friends of mine and I enjoyed a dozen of between us, certainly merits sampling should anyone make the sojourn to the ocean. Thank yourselves after coming here, a terrific place. (2,637 characters)

Visited week of Memorial day 2008. Nice building, has a windmill that they supposedly get their power from. I'm guessing this was just a power accent. Has some old school video games and foosball. Enough TVs, watched the Pistons on this night. Beers were good, nothing of any real note, but all drinkable. Service was good if not disinterested, probably because they were not very busy. Wish they would have had more of their offerings available. I'm guessing most things on this island are busy on the weekend dead during the weak, so they are probably set up with that in mind. (579 characters)

Visited for lunch last week while at the beach for Labor Day weekend with my brother, wife, and two friends. The location right on the main drag is incredibly convenient and even on Labor Day Saturday and the college football opening day we walked right in and sat down at the bar. Atmosphere was decent and pretty casual.

My brother and I ordered the sampler and tried the Olsch, a wheat beer, pale ale, IPA and Dragon's Milk. They were all okay but nothing to really get excited about. The IPA and the Olsch were above average for the style. Three and a half dollar pints is a fairly reasonable price.

The menu was a little limited but everyone enjoyed their meal. I tried the fish plate which was mostly fish and chips but they did an admirable job. My wife's salad was also pretty robust. Service was a little slow considering we were seated dead center of the bar in front of the taps but they got the job done eventually.

We had a really good time and would definitely come back. It's not awesome but considering the location, they make an honest effort and don't gouge your wallet (1,093 characters)

A welcome reprieve from the swill served in most OBX bars, but I found the beers lacking a little. I tried the Kolsh, the Hefe, the ESB, and the Dragons Milk in a sampler. ESB was the best by far (had an extra pint of that), although the Dragon's Milk had a lot of interesting flavors going on. The atmosphere was nice, they have a pretty large building with live music almost every night. When we were there it was "Punk Night" although I had to leave before anyone took the stage. The server was friendly albeit a little slow. They also serve their own root beer & cream soda which the kids in our group enjoyed. I would visit this place again while in the Outer Banks. (671 characters)

Stopped in here while on vacation. I may have rode by the place if it wasn't for the tall wind turbine right behind the place...that's what caught my attention. Moving on...once inside I found a decent sized place with about 20 tables or so. Looked like there may have been seating upstairs, also. There was a fairly large bar with about 25 seats. The service we had was very good. The poor girl barely had a voice, but she was on the ball. The beers were pretty decent, as well. I had the Kolsch, Stout, Hefeweizen, ESB, and a Lemon Wheat beer (which was quite interesting and good). I would say the Stout was probably my least favorite. I really wanted to try the Brown Ale, but it was kicked. Oh well, just gives me something to look forward to on the next trip. The food was very good. The pulled pork sandwich was very moist and tender and the swordfish steak they had for the dinner special was phenomenal. Those bacon and cheddar grits that came with the fish were superb! I was a bit disappointed that they didn't have an IPA in their line-up, but I managed to get over it. I would recommend hitting this place up if you're in the area. (1,144 characters)

Pretty easy place to find just off of the main highway there in Kity Hawk, just south of the Wright Brothers museum/park area. I stopped by for lunch, around 2pm on Friday. Plenty of parking and no wait for a table. In fact, I was a little worried because nobody was there but based on reviews, this placed seemed cool. I am glad we came here.

Decent atmoshphere. The ceiling is about 40ft tall with Oriental rugs hanging from the rafters and ceiling. Lots of wood everywhere. Pretty good sized bar located centrally with seating on either side of the bar. Band/stage area to the left of the entrance, facing the road, and that is where we were seated.

Service was pretty good. The waitress was cute and was pleasant although not quite knowledgable on the menu, both beer and food wise. Hard worker so that is all that really matters, in my opinion.

Six beers on draft were: Shipwreck stout (by far the best), Olsch, Wright Witty, Golden Regallo Ale, Old Knucklehead Nut Brown (by far the worst of the bunch), and Dog House Tripel. One good, one horrible one, and the rest were pretty average.

My wife had a salad which was very basic and not very fulfilling or appetizing. The bean dip and nachos for an appetizer was very tasty. I had the sirloin salad and it was nice as well. Apps, food, drinks and tip came to about $40 for two people. Not bad for the area. I would come back for a beer or two and the bean dip but would pass on the food. (1,448 characters)
