Wanchese, located on the southern end of Roanoke Island, is an industrial fishing and boat building town that is home to 1,642 and a lot of O’Neals. There is a long history and tradition that is quite evident when visiting. I know nothing about boats, in the interest of full disclosure, but I did learn from a boat captain, that the Carolina design, was developed by Warren O’Neal in Wanchese.
We first met Wanchese last year when we went on a Sunset Dolphin Tour with Paradise Dolphin Cruises. While the dolphins were a bit photo shy, we had a wonderful trip out on the water.
This time around we tried out two restaurants. The first was Fisherman’s Wharf. Sitting on the Waterfront, the views are nice. My kids liked watching the birds fly by. The food is geared to those with a sensitive palate; you do not need to worry about spice or flavor overload. The staff was really nice to our little ones.
