The aptly named Channel Marker Restaurant is located on the southern edge of the Atlantic Beach Causeway, and as such, is a fine destination for vacationers to enjoy a stunning open-water view to complement a seafood dinner.

Opened in the 1970s, Channel Marker Restaurant naturally specializes in seafood, and has a rich menu devoted to local, seasonal and classic seafood dishes. Patrons can enjoy southern fried plates of shrimp, bay scallops, flounder, oysters and clam strips, hearty pastas like seafood mac and cheese and shrimp or scallop Alfredo, and grilled favorites, like Mahi Mahi or Ahi Tuna. There are also a variety of featured seafood dishes, like Marker crab cakes, filet or fish Oscar, and crab stuffed flounder, as well as a selection of lighter appetizers and salads.

But the big draw at Channel Marker, besides the array of seafood, is the view. Patrons can sit inside or outside on casual shaded tables and admire miles of soundfront while enjoying a cold drink and a stunning sunset on the water. Catering is also available for special events in the Atlantic Beach and Morehead City regions, and live music may be seasonally available in the summertime to enhance the on-the-water experience.
