I LOVE GRITS! Real homestyle southern grits and I have finally found a restaurant in the outer banks that knows how to make them. Biscuits were huge and just light and perfect. Real sausage patties that are hand shaped and you know their not a frozen product. Home fries were excellent. Peppers can be chopped a bit smaller but that... More

I could tell by the reviews this is a locals spot. We came in during the off season. There only a few tables but we found seats and were greeted right away. Service was friendly and quick. My husband and I both ordered burgers. They were fresh and the shoestring fries were great. We will visit again and I recommend... More

Excellent food. Best burgers. Quick service. Nice inventory of beers. Outside sitting area is great when weather is warm. No reservation required. Carry out service is available.

After reading reviews we headed to Art's for breakfast and we were not disappointed! Huge quantities of great fresh cooked food and a ambiance right out of central casting... a mix of locals and visitors having a great time in the cramped quarters... servers alternate from taking orders and delivering food to washing dishes... great fun... will go back in...

Would not care to return due to allowing pet on eating atea. Appeared to be owners. Burger was cooked after ordering which was good.

This is a locals gem. It is hard to get a seat in the summertime unless you get there at 0600 am. Awesome breakfast and a great lunch with the prices just right. Across the street from the beach, you can sit on their porch, have breakfast and watch the sun rise. Arts is a local gem.

What a great place! Small, but cozy and fun! Only 4 tables and a bar inside and many tables outside. Lot's of "locals" there when we went for lunch. The BEST hamburger I have ever had! It was near the beach. Must stop here!

Not many places open in OBX in the off season. We called 2 other burger restaurants, but Art's was the only one to answer. Their Carolina Burger is great. Could have done without the coleslaw, but their fries more than made up for it! Great service, great food.

Thank Slainez75
