Outer Banks Brewing Station Restaurant Review

: It is easy to find the Outer Banks Brewing Station: look for the twin silos and wind turbine that signal you've arrived at this eco-friendly microbrewery. OBBS beers are a highlight and a tasting flight is available, but peruse the martini list as well for unique concoctions such as the Martin's Point. An all-day bar/lunch menu includes fried okra, crab dip, wings, fries and rings, lots of sandwiches --- bratwich, barbecue, steak --- and salads. Steamed shrimp, crab legs --- including king --- and edamame are offered all day. But dinner is where Thailand-born chef Pok truly shines: be it a mahi mahi ceviche or traditional shrimp 'n' grits, Pok puts a spin on it. Along with seafood there is a variety of steaks, chicken, ribs and sausage on the brewery dinner menu. And don't miss the fried tofu with mixed vegetables and jasmine rice sautéed with coconut red curry and Thai basil. Sundays are all about brunch, featuring huevos rancheros and french toast with Grand Marnier-marinated strawberries. All desserts are made in house --- carrot cake, crème brûlée, peanut butter bombe and more.
