Vacationers will notice a handful of sailboats at every local Outer Banks port, either saddled up to the docks or breezing across the harbor, en route to the nearest sound for a cruise, or to the continent-spanning Intracoastal Waterway to continue a long coastal voyage. Some vacationers are even in it for the long haul, docking for a summer or a winter season at a number of local marinas that offer all the comforts of home. Clearly, sailing lovers of all varieties have plenty of options, but even newcomers to the sport can experiment with life on the water with a local sailing lesson, rental, or waterfront cruise.
Henry’s Restaurant offers down home, simple food done Outer Banks style. This is the kind of delicious food grandmothers of North Carolina have been cooking for generations. You’ll feel like you're visiting family with the comfort food and the restaurant’s nautical-style decor.
The kid-friendly and casual restaurant has been serving hearty portions to locals and visitors since 1989. Breakfast is what Henry’s does best, although it’s a wonderful restaurant for lunch and dinner as well. Start your day with incredible hotcakes, omelets, biscuits, french toast, eggs benedict, breakfast sandwiches, and even fried trout, served 7:00am to 1:00pm daily.
You’ll leave fueled for your day and inspired by the friendly service. Lunch is served 11:00am to 4:00pm and offers a large menu of appetizers, sandwiches, salads, luncheon platters, seafood and desserts.
Appetizers include shrimp cocktail, fried oysters, crab balls and clam chowder. Luncheon platters offer prime rib, hamburger steak and North Carolina BBQ, with home style sides such as cole slaw, mashed potatoes and hush puppies.
Seafood platters offer shrimp, flounder, crab cake and soft shell crab. The dinner menu is served beginning at 4:00pm and offers steaks, pasta, sandwiches, all you can eat local seafood options, and lighter fare for those that are watching what they eat.
Delicious desserts include lemon meringue pie, pecan pie, brownie pie and hot fudge sundae among other options. If you haven’t enjoyed a home style meal in a while, Henry’s will take good care of you. Henry’s offers southern food and hospitality at its best.
