The Dunes Restaurant Nags Head

A Nags Head Tradition for 3 Decades

Six nights a week throughout the hot summer, the 120 company members of The Lost Colony perform in front of a house filled with first time visitors and returning fans for two hours wearing heavily draped costumes of course fabric, leather, fur and armor.
Picture a blustery March morning in 1983. It’s cold and windy, but that’s no deterrent to Rufus and Roxie Pritchard, new owners of The Dunes Restaurant, because it’s their opening day...
There are very, very few restaurants on the Outer Banks that can claim to have been in business for over 35 years. Even fewer can say they’ve been owned by the same local family for that long.
