On the north side of the islet, you'll find Uncle Ike's Sandbar & Grill, serving up seafood and steaks alongside quality cocktails and beers in a cool, quirky venue. In the summer, live bands, karaoke, and DJs on the outdoor deck pull in locals and tourists alike for one of the best party experiences in town. Looking to catch a game with a cold one?

Where to head for a day trip

Make sure to try their homemade apple wine, and don't leave without picking your own bag of zucchini, peppers, or eggplant! Currituck Banks is also a great option for half a day; a picturesque nature path through National Estuarine Research Reserve. Traverse raised trails through this absolutely unique ecosystem. Those who enjoy a stroll along the path may run into some of the wild horses and squirrels who call this park their home. Bug spray is advised during summer months!
