Hula Deck

Welcome to the Hula Deck…

…Where the views are blue and oceanic (literally- you can see the ocean!), the food is divine, and the service is sure to please! The Hula Deck provides a true Outer Banks experience with good vibes, relaxing music, and beach views. Bring your friends and enjoy our hula-deck specific menu right across from the sea.

History of the Hula Deck

The Hula Deck was inspired by a need for more waiting area in our OBX restaurant along with a desire to provide more oceanfront views to our guests. Our Tiki Totem Poles were designed and carved from what was originally the 8′ supporting pilings over the deck by a local artisan Jay Bowman. Local professional surfer Noah Snyder set our tile tables as a reflection of our 50k gallon Koi pond below the deck with water motif tiles, lily pads and koi fish. Another local Artist and surf legend Jerry Dorman made our beautiful wood inlay surfboard coffee tables.

“We ate lunch here today and loved it!! The food and service were awesome!!!! We sat outside on the deck & the view is amazing!!!! We are frequently in the outer banks but have never tried this spot!!!!! So glad we did!!!! We’ll definitely be back soon


“Best place on the Beach to eat!! We have going to Run Down Cafe for over 10 years. The food is always delicious, the wait staff is really attentive, fun decor with a Caribbean vibe. The owner Michael puts his heart and soul into making it a place you want to return to often. Try the fish burritos or my favorite the huge salad with grilled tuna and Journey's End House Dressing. Yummy!”


“The food at Rundown Cafe is incredibly delicious. They offer a unique blend of dishes with bright decor and a beautiful ocean view. The staff is friendly and attentive. I would highly recommend anyone in the Outer Banks try it out!”


“We first ate here 3 years ago... it was what dreams were made of... We visited again today and AGAIN my food dream was fulfilled. There was ZERO disappointment. Unique, flavor-rich cuisine, you will not find this menu repeated anywhere!! Love... Love... Love...”
