Discover the coastal flavors of the southern Outer Banks with this local fish fry that puts fresh catches and plenty of tasty sides in the spotlight. The weekly Hatteras Fish Fry has become a tradition for long-time vacationers and locals alike, and is a delicious opportunity to sample the great coastal fare that this barrier island shoreline is renowned for.
The Hatteras Fish Fry is held every Saturday afternoon between Memorial Day and Labor Day, and is held at the Hatteras Village Volunteer Fire Department in the heart of Hatteras village – a popular destination for community events. Visitors who pop in can enjoy carry-out or eat-in helpings of traditional local fare, which includes locally caught fried fish, as well as cole slaw, potato salad, and hushpuppies. Plates are $9 for adults, $6 for kids who are 12 or under, and $1 for an extra dessert to top off a meal, and all of the proceeds from the weekly fish fry go to help local organizations such as the Civic Association, area churches, and the local food pantry. A regular tradition that’s been going strong for roughly 60 years, the Hatteras Fish Fry is a great way to enjoy fare as the locals do - with lots of southern hospitality.
