Keeper's Galley serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner seven days a week in season. Breakfast, which is available until noon, features waffles, eggs, pancakes, country ham, grits, toast, biscuits, and fish roe stirred into eggs. A breakfast buffet is also available in season. Lunch offers cold plates, seafood sandwiches, and hearty clam chowders. The supper menu varies from time to time but they often offer prime rib, crab cakes, seafood fettuccine, chicken, and a surf-and-turf platter. All desserts, including cheesecakes, are made from scratch. Keeper's Galley has a large children's menu (gipper84 would love that) and a full bar. Ring for reservations and off peak season hours. Keeper's Galley is closed November through to February or March.
Favorite Dish: When I was last there, I had the fried scallops, baked potato, and salad.
I was very underwhelmed by this brewpub. I had battered flounder that was at most tasteless the five slices of potato that was served with my fish did have some seasonings though. The beer was just about the same, in the end wanting a beer.
The restaurant is called La Fogata (Spanish for "the bonfire" which are "prohibido" in Kitty Hawk). Our waiter was great. He could carry a large number of platters without a tray. Instead, he terraced them on his arm that was shielded from the heat with thick cloth. For dessert, Fernando and I shared what is called fried ice cream. I don't quite understand the concept but it tasted good. We shared it because we were not sure if he would like it. We were so impressed with La Fogata that it has replaced Papagayo's as our Mexican restaurant of choice on the Outer Banks (and may have been what sunk Papagayo's).
Favorite Dish: I had the combination nº 23 (beef taco, beef burrito, rice and beans). Fernando had the three enchiladas pictured.
