Bar & Entertainment on the Water’s Edge
NC Coast Grill & Bar in Duck, NC, has created the ultimate gathering spot in the heart of the village. Indoors you’ll find a 15-seat concrete bar and plenty of standing room in the open and airy, modern beach-style atmosphere. Our wall of west-facing windows affords a view of the sound from every seat, and our expert bartenders serve craft beers, cocktails, fine wines, small plates and shareable appetizers. Outdoors you’ll find seating and bar tables right on the Duck Boardwalk at the water’s edge. Walk right up from the boardwalk if you’d like. Our servers will tell you about our daily food and drink specials and bring drinks, small plates and menu items to you. In-season, look for live music on the deck and cornhole in the yard. During the off-season, keep your eyes peeled for special holiday offerings via the calendar below.
