Chilli Peppers Restaurant & Bar
Chilli Peppers is the place for fun. Music night featuring Bands from around the area, entertainment and fun events, something is always happening at Chilli Peppers! They also have an outside area with picnic tables, corn hole, and an herb garden that produces that fresh homemade taste. Award winning food and a great, friendly staff Chilli Peppers is a favorite with Outer Banks locals and visitors. We are open for brunch (Sat. and Sun.), lunch and dinner.
I lived a block away for years from chilis. I have to say the food was always the best. I lived for Sundays for I work restaurant buisness too and my day off was the Bloody Mary Brunch there. It was awesome. I have to say the steamers were and are the best on the beach!! And you can't beat the deals in the afternoon on them. Winters were ok because they did great tapas specials!! And do I need to say.... The bartenders damn sure know how to make a descent drink!!!! Many good times there and can't wait to get back home there and get my stool back at the bar. For you tourist coming to OBX don't skip this place... you will have missed out on a truly great time and food. Try the steamers , all of them. Love yall....Gypsy Cya Soon, keep a stool warm 4 me plez.
I've eaten Chili Peppers only once, but that was enough for me. It lived up to the local stereotype of something just for the tourists. The house fish I had was obviously all they had left at the end of the day. I don't think dining at 8:00 PM should subject you to a lower quality/quantity piece of food. The fries, while seasoned nicely, we not crisp and greasy. The cocktail I had was poured heavily which I appreciated, but still it was only a so so meal. Lots of advertising and colorful island decor get tourists so excited that they think they're getting something special. Chili Peppers staff was a mix of very friendly folks, and those who obviously wanted off their shift. To be fair, our food did come out in a timely manner and our drinks were filled when they should have been. All and all an OK meal, and another T-Shirt restaurant at the beach.
We have been regular customers of Chilli Peppers, for both food and drinks, for a few years now. Why? Absolutely delicious food... whether you order steamed seafood from the bar, from the regular menu, or sample portions on tapas night (tapas during off-season only)... you are guaranteed to get something that will please your palate. They also have Sunday brunch and sushi nights two nights a week. The bar scene is a very happening place in the summer, but you can usually get a decent spot near the fireplace during the winter months. All in all, I highly recommend.
