Bonzer is operated by famed Outer Banks Restaurateur, John Kirchmier. Famed for opening both Quagmires and Goombays and associated with Tortuga’s Lie, John knows restaurants. His impact on the Outer Banks food scene is quite extensive and includes many well known area establishments. His success is based on a simple formula, create a fun place where people feel comfortable, hire and train the best staff available. And finally, hire a great chef and let them do their thing. John, however, won’t rest on his laurels and the Bonzer Shack is yet another example of a great Outer Banks restaurant.
