Welcome to The Black Pelican, one of the Outer Banks' premier restaurants. Located in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, The Black Pelican offers panoramic ocean views from our dining rooms and outside deck. Our unique building was constructed in 1874 and used as a United States Lifesaving Station. The Black Pelican is full of character and rustic charm. Walk through maritime history while savoring an unforgettable meal. The Black Pelican Oceanfront Restaurant is located directly across from the beach at Mile Post 4 in Kitty Hawk! The Black Pelican originally served as historic Lifesaving Station # 6 which was constructed in 1874. Station #6 and its crew served to provide aid for boats and their crews that were stranded along the oceanfront. The building also served as an active weather bureau. The Wright Brothers used information garnered by the weather bureau to plan their experimental flights. In 1903, after their successful First Flight, the Wright Brothers sent the telegraph announcement from Station # 6. The Black Pelican serves lunch and dinner daily. In addition to our menu we serve delicious lunch and dinner specials. Fresh seafood, steaks, vegetarian dishes, sandwiches and wood oven pizzas are some of the items offered on our menu. The Black Pelican also has a menu designed just for kids. We have comfortable dining rooms that will accommodate dinner for two or 22. Lunch and dinner are served at our full service bar, along with some local color. Private parties are welcome depending on availability. Catering services for weddings and other special events are our specialty.
