Restaurant
“Sunnyside Oyster Bar has been around since 1935 and the locals and out of towners love it. Diners sit around a bar and shuckers dish up the oysters raw or steamed. Open only in months with an "R" in them. ”

“Griffin's is an institution in town. It opens for breakfast really early and the towns early risers will be there. If you go for lunch or dinner be sure to have the collards and for desert you must have the Banana Fritters.”

“Fun restaurant with cozy bar that offers great seafood and local dishes. Be sure to get the crab and lobster bisque. This restaurant was once a florist that was owned by a one-of-a-kind-flaming-redheaded woman named Georgia Dean. ”

Street Address
“The Cypress Grill on the Roanoke River was a landmark for over 50 years. Sadly it burned - but the good news is they have re-opened in the Belk's shopping mall and the food is even better. If you are brave ask for the cremated herring or herring roe. They aren't on Google Maps but they really are here!”
