Meal was good with fish and crab roll - not a lot of seating - so you will be seating with or very close to others - gives you a chance to chat with people you do not know.

Absolutely the best sseafood boil. The crab legs, shrimp, clams and oysters were outstandingly delicious. The place isn't much to look at, but food is great!! The servers weren't very friendly either, but the food made up for it.

We have been there with our 3 year daughter. Very friendly staff, responsive, excellent food. Oysters and fish &chips as expeted excellently, but we have been surprised by the oustanding jucy wings, as well as the superb french fries. Best place to be.

Had a great meal of crab legs and shrimp (with Old Bay seasoning, of course) here. It’s a small place with marine theme and very friendly staff. Inside & outside seating. Prices reasonable and fun place to be at Carolina Beach.
