Basnight's Lone Cedar Cafe
7623 S. Virginia Dare Trail
Nags Head, NC

The Lone Cedar Cafe specializes in fresh and local seafood.  If you’re craving the freshest fish, clams, crab, shrimp and oysters from local North Carolina waters, you’ll find them at the Lone Cedar Café.
For generations, Outer Banks families made their livings—and their daily meals—from the bounty of local waters, caught fresh every day.  The Basnight family continues this tradition by serving only the freshest Outer Banks seafood, caught in local waters and brought to our docks daily by local fishermen, then cleaned and prepared right here at the Lone Cedar Café.  Our vegetables are “just picked” from North Carolina farms, we serve only all-natural beef and poultry, and even our herbs are grown in our own chemical-free garden on-site.  Come enjoy delicious food, gorgeous sunsets and panoramic water views, the antics of our resident ospreys and our warm southern hospitality.
