Trio Restaurant and Market Kitty Hawk Outer Banks


MP 4.5 Bypass, Kitty Hawk, NC

TRiO is an exciting retail and restaurant destination with an inviting yet cosmopolitan vibe that sets us apart from other casual venues on the Outer Banks. We’re a place to feed your passion for wine, beer, cheese, casually inventive food and more. Comprised of both a gourmet wine, beer and cheese market as well as a restaurant with a wine bar and tap house, we offer the best of the worlds of wine, beer and cheese for your enjoyment on premise or in the comfort of your home. We believe that wine, beer and cheese are timeless, just like the Mother Vine represented in our logo.

More than just a restaurant and bar, TRiO is a gathering spot.

In our restaurant, we’ve created an environment that is simple and classic, yet immediately comfortable; a gathering spot for locals we see often and occasional visitors who quickly become friends. We have table and bar seating in our main area downstairs and in our upstairs mezzanine, where there is also comfortable lounge seating perfect for group get-togethers. In keeping with our community-driven space, we regularly host tastings, charity events and Chef’s Dinners. Live music happens year round with a mix of local and visiting artists from acoustic rock to bluegrass; jazz to alternative.
