About Blue Water Grill

Overlooking the docks at Pirate’s Cove Marina, Blue Water Grill & Raw Bar provides the dining public with an amazing dining experience. Roanoke Island has a magical history. Had our restaurant always existed, we might have served Eleanor Dare, Governor John White, Chief Manteo and Chief Wanchese, or Andy Griffith.
Today we hope to serve another celebrity…YOU. We try very hard to provide each of our patrons with a sensory experience they will remember. Whether it is the view, the food and drink, or the service, we want each customer to say, “That was great!” As those first colonists would have said, before they got lost, of course, “Cheers and Bon Appetit!”

About Front Porch Cafe

Every town has their local coffee shop. On the Outer Banks of North Carolina, Front Porch Café is that spot. Established in 1999, Front Porch Café came into being for one simple reason… People needed a good cup of coffee on the Outer Banks.
Front Porch Café was founded in 1999 and was the first small batch roasted coffee shop on the Outer Banks. It truly began as a passion project and for a love of coffee!  In order to provide the best cup of coffee, we knew we had to roast our own coffee beans in house- controlling the process each step of the way to ensure nothing but the best for the Outer Banks.
