Chef Wes Stepp and 2 Epic Town of Duck Restaurants
Chef Wes and I have become pretty good friends over the last few years.
Clearly one of the most talented and celebrated chefs in the area.
If you mention Chef Wes to others that vacation there, they are sure to know him.
His reputation of sharing generous portions of food, in tandem with palate-pleasing, locally sourced foods, is what sets him apart from any and everyone!
Whether you’ve seen him on television, read his book, Tastefully Fit, or have met him in person, he’s endearing and REAL!
Of course, his passion for food creation simply translates from his strong, fun persona!

Did You Read My Article about the Red Sky Cafe?
Last year, I dined at his famed Red Sky Cafe, which I can’t get enough of, and chomped down BOARDS of goodies.
Since then, Chef has opened another incredible restaurant NC Coast Grill & Bar, almost across the street from The Red Sky and on the Boardwalk.
I just was there too!
Whether you want a great meal, with incredible service, or cocktails on the water with yummy eats, you’ll find it at both of his restaurants.
Even if you can’t get to his 2 epic restaurants in Duck, you can still experience Chef’s incredible culinary skills.
For those wanting a personal Chef or catering, Chef Wes owns, Chef on Call!
Let’s Dig In to Food with A View
You came to the OBX for the beach and the weather well at NC Coast Grill & Bar you can sit at the waters’ edge along that amazing DUCK boardwalk.
Eat, then go walk it off and shop!
We came here during summer with Covid, we dined outside, and loved every moment of it.
Salads are fabulous here!
The salads are what you see closed in the containers on my table!
We just ogled at the waterside seating and enjoyed every second of this!
Above, I capture a treasured stolen moment at the NC Coast Grill and Bar.
These ladies were dining together and they were so cute! All in their hats and all discussing vacation.
Just in case you are wondering this is more outdoor seating! IT gets very busy here because the CHEF is so amazing.
Right Across the Street is the 2/2 epic OBX restaurants in Duck
Red Sky Cafe ..
As a huge fan of the Red Sky Cafe, I took my kids there and they totally ate everything except the boards, lol.
Visit NC Coast Grill and Bar + Red Sky
So I think I would suggest visiting the NC Coast Grill and Bar as well as Red Sky Cafe if you can fit that into your beach life schedule.
Perhaps have drinks at NC Coast Grill and Bar and another night a meal there?
You’ve just got to eat at the Red Sky Cafe too, so leave room in your itinerary!
