Remember when

Having lived on the Outer Banks since 1972 I have seen a lot of businesses come and go, expand, move their location, etc. So, every now and then I like to play the game "Do you remember when...?" Read More Mulligans Restaurant is now located between the roads near Jockey's Ridge, around MilePost 13 in Nags Head. Great food, (shrimp and grits and burgers!) and good service. Mulligans used to be located on the beach road near MilePost 10...in what is now Beach Road Bar and Grill. Before it was the Beach Road Bar and Grill it was Millers Pharmacy for many, many years...complete with a soda fountain!

Before it was Mulligans...it was known as Bad Barracudas!

Firefly is the new name for a revamped restaurant in Nags Head...formerly named Prime Only. Prime Only used to be in the building that Red Drum Restaurant now occupies...on the beach road in Nags Head. However, before it was Prime Only that building was home to Your Office by the Sea...which sold paper, staples, office supplies.
