Easy to find right off Highway 64, next to a large Christmas Shop. The building screams German style - lots of dark wood, loud, and festive. Large gift shop just off one main entrance that had loads of t-shirts, hats, and cases of beer. Stopped in mid-afternoon on two seperate occasions during our trip. We avoided the crowded main dining room and opted to sit at the small 8 stool bar both times.
There were six beers available: the standard gold lager, fest, dunkles, weizen, along with two seasonals an altbier and kolsch. Beer quality was decent but not overwhelming. 1/2 pints, pints, and litre glasses are available. When we visited they were experiencing a cooler problem, so the beers came out slightly warmer than what are they normally served at, which upset some of the patrons but not me. They were still cool and refreshing, just not ice cold like they normally serve them.
The menu is laced with German food, and my wife and I had german sausages, goulash, and the standard pretzel. All were good and paired well with beers, especially the german sausage.
The three bartenders that served us during our trips were friendly, but seemed to be overworked with constant pours and serving tables outside the bar. They definitely knew the beers.
An older lady working in the gift shop told me the other two Weeping Radish's were just recently closed, and this is the original and only one remaining. Open since 1986, this place is worth a visit for a nice german food and beer experience.

Very cozy interior, all German beerhall-type decor. There is a bar area with about 10 tables, and a separate dining hall, with about 15 tables, and a balcony with @10. Deer heads on the walls, reindeer antlers too. This place is for real!
I was in the bar area. There were locals at the bar, which is a little odd, considering this is a resort area. There was one barkeep/waitress, working her ass off serving everyone there. The beers were good. I didn't eat here. There are two other Weeping Radish restaurants, gotta check them out!

The Real McCoy, if only they let you take the liter beer glasses OUTSIDE! Drinking from plastic cups should be verboten.
Inside is a beer hall and a tavern. This German food is the best you can get in the Outer Banks (what do you expect) and the beer is served in THE glass. Got to love a place that gives you beer in a real liter glass. The beers are very good and they put some thought into them- with an occasional Stone beer. But why not let us take the beer outside in the liter glass like in REAL Germany? Why must we drink from plastic cups!
Don't forget to bring a couple of liter bottles home.
Returned on 8/4/2005 and found the place as good as usual. Beer was $6.99 a liter, though entres were pretty expensive ($21.99 for the Bavarian platter), but hamburger (see lunch) was reasonable.

There are three of these out on the Outer Banks, but this one is the only one I've been too, and it appears to be the most atmospheric (it's also the first one they opened). Anyway this place is a must see if you're at the Banks. The atmosphere is great, as it feels like a real Hofbrauhaus, but since it's in a tourist area it's very casual. The beer garden is great, and a nice Christmas store is adjacent to the property.
The food is plain awesome. Big selection of all the German classics plus American stuff too. For the beer selection, the focal point would definitely be their own beers. Sure they have other stuff, but it would be a sin not to try their brews since they are so good. Weeping Radish beer is available all over the Banks (I've seen it in Brew-Thrus, 7-11s, and grocery stores). The owner does tours of the facilities, and he's really cool about answering questions. Nice gift shop too.
What else can I say? Check it out if you're in the area, and you won't be disapointed.
