One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well. ~ Virginia Wolf
“R” is for restaurant; in this case Owens’ Restaurant.
In keeping with the Travel theme, I immediately thought of all the great restaurants that I’ve visited through the years. But there’s one that stands out from the rest and that is Owens’. It’s located in Nags Head, North Carolina on the Outer Banks. If you love really good seafood and really good food in general, you need to try Owens’.
I took the photo of the marquis in 2012 (my last trip there), so that means they are now in their 70th year. They have a wonderful history and you can read more about Owens’ Restaurant here.
If I lived the lifestyle of the rich and famous and could charter a plane to fly somewhere for dinner, I’d head for Owens’. If you get to the Outer Banks, you should too!
Here are some photos from this quaint, seaside eatery. It features an adorable gift shop and interesting antiques, photos and memorabilia from the US Lifesaving Service (the forerunner to the US Coast Guard.)
