I have recently decided that when I am on vacation, the souvenir that I am going to buy will be a growler from a local brewery.
In 2012, we were at the Outer Banks, and after some research, decided to try the Outer Banks Brewing Station.
We stopped here for a late lunch, and we are glad we did. The food and the atmosphere were excellent. The service was a little slow, but was to be expected, since it was a rainy day at the beach, they were very busy, and we did not really mind since this allowed us to really savor the food and the beer.
The real reason for the stop was the beer, so we bought a sampler of 4 beers, Olsch, Lemongrass Wheat, Vikings Liking, and Altimeter. An excellent variety of beers, and I decided to fill my souvenir growler with the Vikings Liking.
I highly recommend the Outer Banks Brewing Station as a stop for a meal and drinks. One of the highlights of our vacation this year.

I have ben in this location several times with my wife. The wait staff is excellent and the food is great. Had an excellent stout this last weekend and a decent triple. The atmosphere is nice with a variety of locals and tourists. The value is good, beer definetley above average and the food is above par. The mussels are the best I have had south of Berthas in Baltimore. The lemongrass wheat is worth the trip, Had the conquest IPA which I would rate a B, the triple a b and the stout an a-. A pleasant trip all in all

I really enjoyed this place very much, the only complaint it seems I can give is that the place wasn't big enough during the summer months. We had to wait over an hour to get seated, but hey, that's a good thing because it was worth it.
My girlfriend and I both thought the place had a good feel, the food was amazing although it was a bit on the expensive side, but no more so than most of the other places on the Outer Banks we went to. We got seated upstairs, from which you can look over the railing and see the downstairs. If we had gone later, we might have caught some entertainment. I can imagine it would be a good place to go and have a few rounds and watch a live band.
I got the beer sampler and really enjoyed a few of them. My favorite of those was the Lemongrass Wheat and the Stormy Roses. My only regret was not getting a growler of the Lemongrass before leaving. I even came back a second time to finish off the rest of the beers they had at the time (6 offerings).

After not being to the OBX area in a few years I was curious to see if this place had improved....well it has, BIG TIME.
My wife and I stopped here for lunch on our way down to Buxton last week and were impressed with not only the beer but the food too. We tried everything they had on tap and all of it was very well done. Very nice selection ranging from a light beer that actually had taste to a FuggleFest IPA to a most delectable Barley Wine. Even had an interesting brew called Vikings Liking that was flavored with alder smoked malt and juniper berries....one of the most flavorful lighter beers I have EVER had.
Our food was great too....I had a soft shelled crab sandwhich and my wife had a seared ahi tuna steak salad that was very nice. We both enjoyed the soup du jour, a tomato, cucumber gazpacho. All in all this place has improved markedly over the past 5 years....I like it better than Weeping Radish, but then I am not the biggest lager fan. The only complaint I have is that they do not have any beers available on cask....:-(

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.

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.
