My friend ordered a fish dinner and I had a steak. The waiter was very attentive and we'd go back again.

I have probably been there in the past, but did not recall this time around. I was SO very impressed with the service (this is a long time family owned business) and the food was outstanding.

If you're looking for a great place for dinner, try The Dunes. It's easy to find with ample parking. Service was good and the seafood was excellent.

We decided to try the Dunes for a Sunday breakfast and are glad we did! The breakfast bar has a very wide selection of delicious items and we definitely didn't go away hungry! The service and the overall atmosphere are first-class and we would definitely recommend it.

Description
This local, Outer Banks restaurant is now in it's 35th anniversary season. That's probably why it's called a 'Nags Head Tradition' by locals. Currently open for breakfast daily. Weekends - spring and fall - and daily in the summer season, there's a robust fruit and breakfast bar plus some whopping good breakfast platters. When dinner opens shortly, Specialties are real southern cooking - like fried chicken. Also a specialty - local, Outer Banks seafood - broiled, fried, and always good. Steaks and prime rib round out the dinner menu. The "R" Bar is great for a late night meal or a special drink. And if all this isn't enough, there's Roxie's Retail - great, flirty finds for your home or wardrobe. It's a family run organization that is glad to welcome locals and vacationers alike.
