food in the outer banks, nc

i've been going down from philadelphia to avon and cape hatteras on the outer banks for the last decade or so. we mostly end up cooking our own seafood down there but i was wondering if there were any particular obx favorites others could recommend. hatteras clam chowder is always interesting. it's broth based and generally described as looking like dirty dishwater, but it's definitely tasty. any thoughts?
