Max's Pizza in Kitty Hawk at milepost 4.5 is the best bet for pizza and they feature a nice selection of cold beer.  Also at milepost 4.5 you will find Seaside Vegetarian (take out seafood and vegetarian dishes) and the Good Life Gourmet.  Both offer delicious food and are highly recommended.  Art’s Place on the beach road is a tiny local restaurant with ocean views and standard American fare.

The Kill Devil Grill is a consistent favorite!
