What Happened to Coastal Provisions in Kitty Hawk?




I hadn’t been tracking but just saw Coastal Provisions closed. Anyone know what happened?

We stay within walking distance and loved lunch on the patio. Yes, there is Steamers but I never thought it was as good, it’s really loud, wine not a good, and and not much outdoor space. High Cotton is good, but also not much outdoor space and not a “relax with a drink” vibe. And I will so miss Coastal’s great deli and take home to cook seafood within walking distance.

Any recommendations for patio dining sumilar to Coastal? IE - no giant groups, relatively quiet, nice place for a wine and a sandwich or snack, and restrooms not deep inside a crowded restaurant from a COVID safety perspective.

I am quite sad I won’t be able to walk over for a Happy Hour wine.

According to their Facebook page they closed a little over a year ago when their lease ended.

Dan and Scott's lease ran out last year and they decided to close that place. They still have the other two places in Duck.

I have to disagree with you about Steamers.. We love the food but it is a little pricey.

It is so loud in Steamers I can't hear the people at the table sometimes. The food was good but it has poor acoustics like Basnights has as well. I have $150 gift card I have had over 1.5 yrs and have yet to use it.

I was also sorry when Provisions closed. Had a lot of nice lunches there and, agree, it had a very pleasant vibe. We ordered out from Cravings a few times last fall and enjoyed the food a lot. Have always thought Coastal Cantina's food was solidly mediocre.


RE: What Happened to Coastal Provisions in Kitty Hawk?




Thanks everyone. I agree with Tim about thr noise at Steamers. When we last ate there with six. some 65+, even yelling you could only hear the person next to you. And that was in pre-pandemic May. Will give take out a try.

I like drinks at Coastal Cantina on the boardealk in Duck, but agree that by great Tex Mex food standatds, the food is meh.

I haven’t tried Coastal Cravings. I dislike the drive up to Duck and parking there, but sounds like a great bike ride and lunch.

We have been extremely cautious during the pandemic so really looking forward to a two week get away and another week in September. And the best dining is from our ocean front deck at Pelicans Watch in Southern shores. The house changed hands last year so hope the new folks take as much care / keep it as clean as the old ones.

RE: What Happened to Coastal Provisions in Kitty Hawk?




If you are in Pelican Watch then I see your connection to Coastal Provisions and Steamers. My last visit to Steamers was soon after it opened and that was 3 years ago as I recall. I mentioned to the owner that the acoustics were just as bad as with Meridian 42. She admitted it was and that it was going to be fixed, I'll go back when it has been.


RE: What Happened to Coastal Provisions in Kitty Hawk?




The wife and i were fixtures there on 1/2 price oyster Wednesdays. Was devastated last June to arrive and find it closed. I talked to someone who was connected to the place and said the lease got jacked up and priced them out (they were also not exactly making money on certain things...............like half priced oysters).

But, you are in luck. We are also walkers that stay right in that area, and we always make time to eat on the upstairs, outside deck of the Run Down Cafe. It's only a couple hundred yards way on the beach road by the Hilton. Can't beat the views!!

I don't doubt that the owners jacked up the rent. I won't mention who those owners are but they have made it hard to keep a business in that strip center that do well. think about it

There are many reasons that restaurants have had a hard time in the last year. Increased rents certainly didn't help, and choices that restaurants make about how to run their operations also had an effect. We did a fair amount of lunch takeout from Coastal Provisions and my wife loved the Wednesday oysters. But we hadn't gone there for dinner in a long while.

Local business people take a big risk by participating in the OBX Connection. Some things you can say and others you can't. Tim has been very forthcoming in answering questions as well as being very professional about what he says. If he is uncomfortable naming names, you can be sure that he has a good reason.

I do know who the owners are. While I have no inside info on Tim's specific motives, I think he handled the answer in the best way he could.

Tim knows everything about everything

Local businesses take no risk participating here or on any social media forum if they don't sh!t-talk another local business either by name or by insinuation. Land ownership is public record.

Tim's first response was both informative and neutral. I get he's the local sacred cow here but his follow up comment about the owners of the shopping center was unprofessional and added nothing of real value to the topic.

Hard agree. lol, everyone who lives here knows who owns it. They fought pretty hard against developing the property but got a lot of pressure from the town. They can charge whatever rent they want.

Except that the particular forum in which this thread is taking place is not limited only to people who live here.

Ali2016

Given the situation with the owners who preceded the previous ones, I'm sure the town was interested in the shopping center not going (further) to wrack and ruin. I'm not sure what pressure you're referring to, or what development occurred after the purchase except cosmetic stuff. The new ingress/egress that was built later was at the owners' initiative, not the town's, at least judging from what was said in the public hearing.

Ali2016

I don't disagree with that for a second. I realize that subtlety goes over most people's heads these days, but I think what I said has been taken to mean something I absolutely did not say. I'm not taking sides between the restaurant owners and the landlords. I'm saying that if I were in Tim's shoes, I wouldn't have named the new owners either. And as both you and KGC have said, the information on who that is is findable if a reader is that interested.

But while it's great in principle to support an owner's right to charge what he/she/they want, in this case, the net result is that they lost an anchor tenant and the space has remained vacant for over a year, earning them nothing. And CP has lost a lot of sales, given that people do like their takeout.




RE: What Happened to Coastal Provisions in Kitty Hawk?




Who and what is the “Tim” that everyone keeps referring to? I’m a bit confused.


RE: What Happened to Coastal Provisions in Kitty Hawk?




Tim, you could always do take out at Steamers. That would put dent in that gift card of yours.
