Lifesaving Station

Located in the historic Caffey's Inlet Life Saving Station No. 5, the renovated Lifesaving Station is Sanderling's casual, three-meals-a-day restaurant celebrating southern coastal cuisine and regional, organic products indoors and out. Known for the "best breakfast on the Outer Banks", the Lifesaving Station is a favorite Duck, N.C. restaurant. The menu changes seasonally, while the wine and beer lists are always impressive.

Resort Casual Attire. We kindly ask for no bathing suit cover-ups.
