Contemporary casual dine in or take out. Fresh Blue Crab, oysters. Tried the crab appetizer because they shell the crab for you. DELISH!! Chowder was great, too. Prices are reasonable.

As a family that lives on the water, these folks have really fresh seafood. Oysters on the half shell, plump and fresh. Shucked right in front of you. Tacos stuffed with fresh seafood of your choice. Really a great experience.

My second visit was just as awesome as the first one. The crab bisque was amazing. Oyster Rockefeller was delicious. And best yet, it was soft shell crab season, so I had the crispy soft shell sandwich. Lastly, service was excellent once again.

Price probably changes daily. I would call and ask.

Can you get bulk crabs to eat in the restaurant or only to go? Say like 5 of us want to share half a bushel or maybe 10 or 20 pounds and a bunch of sides. Is this an option?

October is a great time of year for seafood in the Outer Banks! Local blue crabs, shrimp, and oysters should all be in season. We look forward to your visit.
