Jimmy’s Buffet is located at MP 3.5 on the bypass.  Just look for the two story sky blue building with the pirate looking out at the road from the second story balcony.  The restaurant was established in 1999.  They recently celebrated their 10 year anniversary in 2009.  On April 14, 2009 the Outer Banks Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the reopening of the restaurant after owner Liz and general manager Gene Perry remodeled the location.  They have also recently opened a second location in Ocracoke North Carolina.
