The delicious, elegant yet casual Coastal Provisions Market catered to our lovely reservation staff last week after hours. This one-of-a-kind market has transformed into a tasty wine bar on one side of the store and wanted to give our hard working ladies a treat for what they do. As well as giving them the experience that they would share with you, your friends, and your family.
The dinner was amazing, and we got so much more than we were expecting. With 6 different wines to taste, and a dish to go with each, we now know that Dan & Scott, the owners, are the experts when it comes to customer service. Kudos to you, Coastal Provisions!
This restaurant is located directly behind our rental office (where you check-in) making it easy to access on summer weekends when the traffic is heavy. For example, people ask our staff for recommendations on where to eat, what to do, and where to go while they wait to check in which isn’t until 4 p.m. We already have a post discussing what you can do to make your check-in process easier while you wait. However, we haven’t mentioned where you should grab a bite to eat. Well, this is a place you want to go while you wait to check-in to your Outer Banks Vacation Rental. They provide great customer service and high-quality food. Just park your vehicle at our office, and walk around to the back to reach the Southern Shores Crossing where they are located. Last year Coastal Provisions built an outside bar so you can enjoy the sun while you have some lunch with them.
Scott, co-owner, even mentioned something that really hit me. He said “The guests that travel to our area have most likely visited before or know someone else who has. With that being said, they usually have an idea of where they like to grab quick lunches and have a nice dinner. People are hesitant when it comes to switching up their usual OBX stops.” This makes sense, but I personally want to encourage you to get a true taste of our entire beach. Each restaurant does a fantastic job, and they all offer something different in their own unique way. To go beyond your OBX elements, try different places each time you visit us. It’s the only way to really get that week of OBX lifestyles you are looking for. Especially Coastal Provisions for they constantly keep you in mind, are innovative, and have already made lots of changes for the upcoming season.
