Don’t be intimidated by Art’s Place’s slogan, “Locals Welcomed, Tourists Tolerated...sometimes.” Art’s Place is as laid back and friendly as it gets. It’s true this restaurant and bar is one that OBX locals have loved since it opened here in 1979, but tourists also will find it charming 

Art’s Place is popular as a breakfast spot and as a greasy spoon for lunch and dinner. It’s a diner and bar, featuring great food and live music.

Music takes the stage at Art’s Place several nights a week and on holidays. Monday Jazz Nights are particularly popular. The full-service bar offers happy hour specials and friendly service. Art’s Places location just next to the beach on the Beach Road makes it a perfect spot to take a break from the heat. 

Lunch and dinner at Art’s Place will treat you to some of the best burgers on the Outer Banks! In fact, it’s been featured in Our State magazine as one of the best burger joints in North Carolina. The burgers go great with hand-cut french fries and an ice cold beer. PBR and Busch beers are offered at great prices.

Nothing too fancy here, it’s the beach after all! Laid back is the point of vacation and Art’s Place will offer you a great taste of what it’s like to live on a sandbar.
