This is the place for fresh seafood to cook at home. Yesterday they had beautiful soft shell crabs, scallops, shrimp, and several filleted fish. Lucky to have gotten the last tub of jumbo cup crabmeat. (They will have more today or tomorrow). They have often put together customized shore dinners for us to bring home and steam at home. They...

We found this gem two years ago and it hasn't disappointed since. If you enjoy grilling up some locally caught seafood, want a tomato pie (which is an otherworldly experience) or just want to take advantage of one of their seafood boil pots, you won't be disappointed!

We picked up some local shrimp and Drum fish for a seafood stew we made while on vacation. Their seafood is alway fresh and reasonably priced.

Excellent seafood and great customer service sums up Dockside 'n Duck. We stopped in to see what the catch of day was and left with the most awesome clambake in a can. Fantastic way to try out their down east clambake. We added a few more ears of sweet corn and additional shrimp. Followed the directions at our rental house... More

We bought seafood here for four of our seven nights at a "week at the beach" type vacation. Excellent each time. Fresh, flavorful, and easy cooking. Appreciated that the service staff were very well informed on the products being sold and could advise on cooking techniques.

Great seafood to prepare at home. Have gone here for several years. Planning on filling our cooler as we leave OBX.

We were in a hotel. Did not have access to a stove. If we had, we would have been set for a clam bake! Great selection of fresh fish and the fixings and pot for a clam bake. Lots of other food items for whatever you may want to add to your meal.

We ordered a bushel of Blue crabs and half of the bushel was not good at all. They smelled like amonnia, the meat was gray, and some were filled with water. The other box was delicious. I can't assume what was wrong with the one half but they weren't good to eat. It could be worth it to try the... More
