Restaurants and Bars

The enjoyment of fine cuisine is inextricably linked to the Sanderling experience. Whatever your mood or desire for the day or evening, Sanderling has the perfect option – whether it’s a seating at one of Sanderling’s renowned restaurants or a spontaneous beverage, or beach picnic.

LIFESAVING STATION AND NO. 5: The newly-renovated restaurant cheers both the spirit and the palette with its refreshingly open spaces, expansive new outdoor deck, and three-meal-a-day service. The menu, inspired by local produce, offers a modern twist on southern coastal cuisine, combined with classic salads, soups and burgers. The main dining room is perfect for families and groups of all ages, while the second-floor No. 5 Bar with its sweeping views of the Currituck Sound and a full dining menu, is a fun spot for couples throughout the year. A robust kid’s menu is available year round.
