Starting at 11:30 a.m., the menu at this Nags Head restaurant serves up delicious starters including chicken wings, shrimp con queso, calamari and veggie dip. If you’re in the mood for some Outer Banks local seafood, why not try the combination seafood platter, which comes with a half-pound of snow crab legs, a half-pound of shrimp and a half-dozen clams steamed, all served with house cocktail sauce, butter and lemon. Or try a locals’ favorite and go for the Low Country Boil, complete with steamed clams, shrimp and andouille sausage served with red potatoes and sweet corn. And don’t forget that Red Drum chowder, a Hatteras-style clam chowder.

Are you a hamburger fan? Then head over to the burger menu where you can fill up on 7 ounces of fresh Angus beef, served up in a host of creative styles. The sandwiches run the gamut from tuna to Portobello mushroom, so if you are a pescatarian or a vegetarian, have no fear, there’s plenty for you at this Outer Banks restaurant.

Let’s not forget the taphouse specials — Fish & Chips and Oysters & Chips, made from fresh, lightly battered and fried, served with coleslaw, fries and tartar sauce. Don’t be fooled by the name when it comes to the Mac & Cheese. There’s a bit more to this bow tie pasta dish — it comes complete with a housemade cheese sauce topped with a sauté of shrimp and country ham. For seafood with a Southwestern flair, try the Gamefish Burrito, grilled yellowfin tuna wrapped in a soft flour tortilla with tomato, scallions, Cheddar-Jack cheese and refried beans, or the Shrimp Quesadilla, shrimp, tomato, scallions, sour cream and Cheddar-Jack cheese in a grilled tortilla. For those who don’t mind getting messy, try the delicious half rack of baby back ribs, basted with Red Drum’s special honey habanero barbecue sauce.

The full menu is available at Red Drum Grille & Taphouse until 9:30 p.m., but don’t worry if you’re more of a late-night eater. Red Drum serves bar and steamed food until midnight.
