The newest establishment from a longtime Hatteras restaurateur, Cockeyed Clam focuses on locally sourced seafood and New American cuisine. The setting is island-style with a casually elegant, spacious interior and outdoor seating on covered porches. The daily specialty cocktails from the Clam Bar are always worth a try, or you can choose from their thoughtfully chosen wine and beer list. Start with appetizers like Hatteras Salts Oysters, Scallop Puffs and Ahi Tuna Poke, then move on to fried seafood platters, steamed seafood or house specialties like crab cakes, steaks or chicken Parmesan. Save room for dessert because they're all house-made. Wednesdays are burger night.
