Ocracoke - Lodging & Dining
Posted September 17, 2009
Where are your favorite places to stay and dine when you're on the Outer Banks of North Carolina? Please weigh in.
Since we're focusing on Ocracoke this week I thought I would limit my recommendations to the quaint Hyde County village. During my most recent trip to Ocracoke I stayed at The Castle bed & breakfast along Silver Lake. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. You've got some great views of the village at The Castle and a hearty meal each morning. I'm also a big fan of another Ocracoke B&B - The Crews Inn owned by my friend Alton Ballance. Several years ago while working on a documentary I spent a night at Thurston House Inn and had a delightful time.
What about restaurants at Ocracoke? I love the food at a new place called Dajio across from Silver Lake and the wait staff was superb. The Back Porch is also a terrific choice for seafood. A lot of people rave about Howard's. Flying Melon served up a top notch lunch. We didn't make it to Pony Island Restaurant but I hear it offers a perfect sample of old time Ocracoke cuisine.
What about you? Where do you lodge and dine on the Outer Banks?
