OBX Seafood Tour: Kelly’s Restaurant

This article appeared a couple of years ago in Our State Magazine, and it’s worth sharing!     “We continue driving north, and N.C. Highway 12 still looks rough in places. Some of the tallest dunes have been windswept and washed over, and the multicolored, temporary bridge rumbles beneath the car’s wheels. In Nags Head, Mike Kelly works in his office in the cavernous Kelly’s Outer Banks Restaurant and Tavern. Art and memorabilia from the Outer Banks cover the walls throughout the dining rooms. He points out an 1884 black-and-white photo of men seining for jumping mullet, a whale vertebra “brought in from a guy at Stumpy Point,” and a “practice bomb” recovered from the World War II firing range in Duck. Dinner won’t be served for a few hours, but Mike gives us some just-made sweet potato biscuits for the road. Kelly’s biscuits are a specialty, and he says the four-ingredient recipe — sweet potatoes, brown sugar, water, and biscuit mix — was given to him by the cook at a hunting lodge in Currituck County.”   http://www.ourstate.com/seafood-tour-outer-banks/
