A new location and new menu coming soon. One of a number of restaurant moves on the Outer Banks.

Under the heading of good news and bad news, Max’s Real Pizza in Kitty Hawk is closed. That sounds like bad news, and for pizza lovers it probably is, but the reason it’s closed is the reason for celebration.

It seems that Grant Sharp and his wife Natalaya are moving into new digs in the Dare Center in Kill Devil Hills and will reopen as Max’s Real Italian Restaurant as soon as they can. According to the couple by Memorial Day or early June at the latest.

The new location has always been a restaurant and with a much larger kitchen and more seating, Grant, who is a classically trained chef, should be able to really spread his wings.

More New Outer Banks Restaurants

Shipwreck’s Taphouse and Grill has taken over what was first a Hooters, then it was BK Shuckers. Owned by Beaman Hines who has brought the Sooey’s BBQ restaurants to the Outer Banks, a quick visit gives the feeling that things are looking up. It’s one of the best Outer Banks restaurants!

There is a very nice outdoor seating area that’s covered by a deck. As long as the rain comes from the south or east, it should be dry there.

The bar has a great selection of beers. The menu is taphouse normal, but if the burger we tried is an indication, the kitchen is turning out some good food.

Since we’re on the subject of new Outer Banks restaurants, Off the Wall Tap House up in Corolla looks interesting.

Twenty beers and maybe more on tap, an outdoor seating area, an innovative menu. It looks interesting. We haven’t had a chance to try it yet, but it looks like another great Outer Banks restaurants!

There is always something new happening on the Outer Banks. Stop by for a visit and plan your stay in a Brindley Beach Vacations home.
