With 40-plus years of experience as a chef in New Orleans and Ocracoke, Michael Schramel brings a great talent to The Flying Melon. The cafe serves a very popular dinner in an attractive, casual dining room. The cooks draw inspiration from traditional French, Southern and Creole cooking. A variety of local seafood shares menu space with fresh and flavorful pasta dishes, steaks, lamb and chicken. Specials – such as Parmesan-encrusted flounder, and pecan-crusted drum with lemon beurre blanc – change nightly. Save room for one of their delicious homemade desserts. A full bar, including beer, wine and mixed drinks, is available. Flying Melon has a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence and a certified sommelier.
