We were looking for something a bit different than the bountiful raw/steamed/fried fish and seafood our here, and luckily found Brine and Bottle. Amazing food - 3 of us shared 4 small plates and 1 entree-sized, and one dessert, and ended up in foodie-heaven. Top...More

We recently visited the Brine and Bottle on our vacation to Nags Head. I had the crispy duck breast and it was quite delicious. However, it was about 7 bites and for the price I would not consider that to be an appropriate portion. I...More

My newlywed wife and I went here after a sunset cruise on the first mate's recommendation. We were not disappointed! Not that hungry, we shared the bacon jam (amazing!) and the gazpacho with lump crab meat (even better!). They have jars of bacon jam to...More

Brine & Bottle is a marvelous stop on the Outer Banks. We dined outside on a beautiful summer night overlooking the Sound. Service was excellent and the food was fantastic. We began with the Bacon Jam, which was unusual and incredibly tasty. We followed with...More

This was our first trip to the Brine and Bottle, and we will definitely return. The restaurant specializes in creative daily fare, including numerous small plates that are perfect for sharing. We started with the fried pickles: thinly sliced, breaded, and deep fried pickles that...More

Stopped by for a look-see and stayed for a glass of wine and a few small plates. The location is out off the causeway between Nags Head and Manteo, but worth the drive. Try the Bacon Jam with Saltines, the Fried Pickles with Ranch-Chive Dressing,...More

Sorry guys, I just wasn't impressed with your restaurant. But you can't please everyone, thats why there are millions of restaurants. Didn't like the atmosphere, too staunch. Food tasted pretty good, but I'm one of those people that are not impressed by fancy visual food...More

The Brine and the Bottle is located in a nondescript "shopping" arcade on the Nags Head to Manteo causeway. It is small and recommendations are usually necessary to dine inside. The menu changes nightly, although several items seem to be regular items on the menu....More

I never like leaving lukewarm reviews, but while I loved the flavors and the interior of the place, as well as the view, the portions are skimpy. We sampled the quail small plate--yes, we know it's a small plate, meant for trying several items, like...More
