We got carry out. The service was quick & everyone was friendly. The crab legs & steamed spiced shrimp were delicious. We would definitely go here again.

Wonderful to hear that you'll dine with us again. For even faster service, you can always call ahead to schedule a pick up time so it's ready to pick up when you arrive. See you next time.

Absolutely the best seafood we enjoyed all week! From the crab dip with freshly fried wontons, crab bisque, oysters & fried flounder sandwich - all were delicious. No frills, but worth the wait to enjoy a second time around!

Thank you so much for waiting on your second visit! We get super busy during peak season, and love hearing that the experience wasn't sacrificed even at our busiest.

Hubby is hard to impress, and he swears these were the best fried oysters he has ever had. Thoroughly enjoyed the fried shrimp, hushpuppies (ask for the brown sugar sauce for dipping!) and blue crab. Location is relatively small, but worth it even if you...More

It just depends on how long the water stays warm enough for the crabs. We will catch and serve them until it gets too cold. Some years that’s Ddcember. Some years it’s late October.

There are picnic tables on the property where you could enjoy a takeout order with your furry friends. We do not provide waiter service to them. Non-seafood options are limited to sides and chicken tenders. Hope this helps!

Not a local, but Island Life NC provides a great chart - links are not allowed in answers but you’ll find it by Googling “seafood in season NC Island Life”
