Outer Banks Locals and tourists alike know that the Red Drum is a real treasure. All of the seafood is delicious. They have the best fish and chips in NC, hands down.
The salad with grilled salmon is perfect. My favorite is the Taphouse Tuna Sandwich. The Tuna is always cooked to perfection. It comes with pesto and sun-dried tomatoes and cheese and it is sure to satisfy. The calamari is delicious and lightly battered with a sauce (ginger-honey? don't know. Be
en trying to figure that one out..) that I could drink!
They have an awesome bar with tons of beer varieties in bottles or draft. They also make the best Long Island Iced Tea on the beach.
Off season they break out some fantastic specials. I have never been dissatisfied at the Red Drum Taproom!

Their food was very good. I had Blackened Tuna Oscar, Mary Ellen had crab cakes, Anne had Blackened Tuna sandwich and the boys had Fried Flounder Fish and chips. It was their last night before they closed for the season. I was a little leery at first but we took a chance and we enjoyed. Unfortunately 10 of their 18 beers were out so I did not partake in a 6 Flight of bottom of the barrell keg beer. We will come back in the Spring for sure. I will take Frank Apap and Lt. Dan Polasky here one day.
