The Blue Crab Tavern is a unique, waterfront dive bar on the Outer Banks.

The Blue Crab Tavern is a unique, waterfront dive bar on the Outer Banks. A throwback to days gone by. This old fish house has been serving up cold libations for nearly 30 years. Truly, a "come as you are" scene. Inside you can find local fisherman, construction workers, retirees, college kids, and tourists. The pool table is only 50 cents, a free foosball table and a killer jukebox. A large outdoor gazebo with decking and docks offer amazing views of the Kitty Hawk Bay and gorgeous sunsets. Locals come by boat. Plenty of docks to moor upon.
