QUALITY • FRESH • LOCAL
The tradition of fresh and delicious seafood dates back to the early days of the Outer Banks. Like other Outer Banks families, the Midgetts, the Basnights and the Tilletts made their livings by harvesting the fresh catch of the day. To continue the family tradition, Marc and Sandy Basnight, and their daughters Vicki and Caroline, opened Basnight’s Lone Cedar Café in 1996. Drawing on the rich Outer Banks heritage of their ancestors, they developed a menu which enhances the freshest seafood and ingredients using many authentic Outer Banks recipes. Caroline and Vicki now helm the restaurant daily, ensuring the highest-quality meals and making every guest feel welcome.
We take great pride in serving fresh, local food—and in being a “green” restaurant, too. By keeping our environment clean and focusing on fresh, local and natural foods, the Lone Cedar ensures that diners have a healthful, natural and—above all--delicious dining experience.
Basnight’s Lone Cedar offers it all: The best local foods—especially our fresh daily catch of local seafood; a panoramic view of Roanoke Sound; and the friendly and warm hospitality of an original Outer Banks family. We hope to see y’all here soon!
