Kwan with his Fish TacosThank you for stopping by our unique little restaurant’s website. We have been serving the Outer Banks for the past 16 years, with our very own twist on food from around the world – and around the block.

Our menu is designed to cover all types of tastes, so even the pickiest member of your party will find something they enjoy.

We’re a laid back, fun and offer a casual dining experience for the entire family.

We laugh a lot and smile because we enjoy what we do here. We hope you enjoy your time here at Mama’s and on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

Thank you for your patronage.
