Roadside Raw Bar and Grill
The big draw of this Outer Banks eatery is its backyard addition, the Backside Bar. Equipped with a separate bar, yard games, and a projection screen, this backyard hangout is the perfect place to sit outside and watch the sunset with one of the Roadside's signature cocktails. A hefty cocktail list leans heavily towards island drinks, with updated versions of Gin Rickeys, Mint Juleps, and Rum Punches anchoring the menu. The food is appropriately pared down so as not to compete with the cocktails, but the small menu isn't short on quality. Steakhouse staples get updated for the beach with local ingredients and fresh sides.
