Pick out your fresh seafood, and they'll cook it while you wait. The patio area is very clean, a perfect place to enjoy lunch. When we visited, a produce stand was open next door (actually in the parking lot), so we picked up some fresh veggies to enjoy with our lobster and clams. The only downside is that they overcooked the lobster, making it very tough. Otherwise it was great, so much better than all the over-hyped buffets and chain restaurants.

Looking for a variety of great tasting, fresh seafood items you can take back to your cottage, condo or hotel? Not really a sit-down restaurant, but this is still the place to visit right in the heart of Nags Head area. Shrimp, scallops, lobster, fish filets, oysters, crabs, clams and other catches from the ocean each day available at fair prices with friendly staff waiting to serve you. Beer and wine also in stock. We took steamed shrimp and clams back to our cottage for supper not once but twice during our week stay and hope to return on next visit. They will also fry the items during tourist season.

Terrific fish market located on the main drag. We ordered 5 lbs of King Crab legs - they steamed them for us (about 10 min wait) and sent us home with them ready to eat, including drawn butter. Delicious! They also have an assortment of clams, shrimp, and fish to select from. There is a nice assortment of beer and wine in the shop, as well.

I had them steam and spice the shrimp but bought the sea scallops raw to fix later for dinner. They were the best steamed shrimp I've had in several years (and I'm a regular seafood eater). The prices were reasonable and the service, in spite of being super busy, was fast. The seared scallops for dinner were amazing!
