DH and I just booked our timeshare exchange vaction to AB. We are staying at the Peppertree Resort and will be celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary while we are there in mid June. Would love to hear from anyone familiar with Atlantic Beach and the area as far as a really nice restaurant for our anniversary dinner. Also, how is the weather in mid June in AB? Thanks

Congrats on your 30th!!

Weather, mid-June--gorgeous, lucky you.

My fav eateries for celebrations:

Blue Moon--Beaufort
Agua--Beaufort
Floyds1921--Morehead City
Williams--Morehead City
Crab's Claw--Atlantic Beach (the interior could stand a spruce up, but the food's great and it's right on the ocean). Great for apps and a sunset drink on their outside patio...
Stillwater--Beaufort, on the water

Lots of other choices, but these are where we go to pamper ourselves.

Bon Appetit!!

Thanks Little Dolphin. I have looked at the web sites for some of the restaurants you mentioned and they all look good. We are really excited about this new beach adventure. We have been to beaches up and down the east coast and we are always anxious to find new areas to explore.

Uh oh...We stayed at the Peppertree Resort and talk about roaches and bedbugs. Pepperc Cottage in The Outer Banks is a dump as well. The Crab's Claw rules however.

ocean seeker,
Little Dolphin has given some great advice.
two things I'd like to add. If you walk straight thru the back of Aqua you'll go thru the kitchen and arrive at another restaurant (My daughters favorite) called, "Clawson's"

Pepper Tree Resort in AB is very centrally located so therefore close to the beach traffic and people. In reality the beach traffic in comparison to most other places is laughable (as in not much). And you'll also discover that beach traffic tends to be a weekend thing and not a week day thing.

You'll have 80 degree water and air temperatures! You should love it!!
Bill

L.D. set ya straight on the eateries, and B.H. knows the area extremely well, lots of good food down that way. And....since you have not been there, Fort Macon and the Aquarium are good visits but, far and away the biggest draw to the crystal coast is the fishing. There are charter boats, kinda steep until you figure out the cost of the fish you catch, there are a lot of them, go to the Marina in Morehead City (Atlantic Beach is ocean side, Morehead City is Sound side w/bridge connecting the two) and talk to the captains and/or mates. Also Head boats like the Carolina Princess for bottom fishing trips. The second biggest draw is friendly people and third is a tossup between great weather (most of the time), and......long expanses of mostly deserted beach. It is one of my favorite places on planet Earth.

Yes, it does. I have read many reviews about the resort and they are somewhat mixed but mostly okay. We will hope for the best since we are there for a week. That's the chance you take when you book a resort sight unseen as we do with RCI. But in 8 years we have never had a really horrible experience with the properties. Hope this is not going to be the first!
