Wastin’ Away Again in Margaritaville: Jimmy Buffett Karaoke at the Sunset Grille & Raw Bar in Duck, North Carolina

In her 36 Hours article (New York Times, July 2005), Cindy Price suggests that Rex and I rock the house with Jimmy Buffett Karaoke at the Sunset Grille & Raw Bar in Duck, North Carolina.  While London and Maddie are more likely than their parents to take over the mikes, I’ve had trouble in the past getting them into bars (like the Square Grouper in Jupiter, Florida)…probably because the usual karaoke suspects are afraid of a little competition.

The New York Times agenda had us arriving at the Sunset Grille on Friday night at 8:30pm for “a cold margarita ($6), a rickety bar stool on the outdoor deck…and a fantastic sunset [that] will make you wish that time could stand still. Take a walk down the long pier and sit in the breezy gazebo for the best view. At 10 p.m., karaoke livens up the dance floor upstairs, with happy sunburned islanders crooning Jimmy Buffett songs late into the night.”

I Googled “Sunset Grille Duck NC” to make sure they’re still in business, and they even have their own web site with a YouTube video of the festivities.  Their web site promises “the finest in fresh local seafood, steaks, pastas, and more with a Caribbean flair.  Our award winning chefs are always working hard to prepare the finest dishes…Sunset Grille is located on the best waterfront property on the Outer Banks in the village of Duck….a total entertainment destination where families are welcome to enjoy our wide array of activities including…outdoor waterfront deck dining areas, 3 tiki bars, sushi bar, raw bar, large indoor dining areas, and an exciting water sports facility located right on the gazebo.  Bring the whole family and rent a waverunner, take a boat fishing or crabbing, parasail to 1200 feet, kayak the shores of the Currituck Sound, or take the whole party on a pontoon boat for a sunset cruise complete with appetizers and preferred dinner seating upon your return.”

This all sounds good to me, since we’re spending four days in Duck, NC, instead of 36 Hours.  We’ll likely try out many of these activities and let you know how it turns out, including the dinner and karaoke.  The menu includes not just a raw bar, but a steam bar for my Jedi clam eaters.

Sunset Grille & Raw Bar 1264 Duck Road, Duck, NC.  Phone (252) 261-3901

Breakfast served starting at 8:00am, lunch from 11am-3pm, and dinner at 5pm, 7 days a week.
