We chose Armstrong's because of reviews and the reasonable price. When we arrived, the owners were the only other ones there, as it was so late in the year. We ordered the fried shrimp with cheese grits, and some crab chowder. The chowder was delicious, and was apparently someone's grandmother's family recipe. The shrimp were very lightly breaded, and the grits were creamy. There are numerous beers on tap and in bottles. The owners were very friendly, and are lifelong residents of Nags Head, so offered lots of info on the area. We really enjoyed the meal and company, and will return.

The food is great! Ate twice while in town. We particularly enjoyed the fish chowder soup. Recipe is owners mother. You can buy and take home...we did! Loved the fried oysters which are lightly breaded. Excellent seasoned French fries. Not fancy, just good!

We picked this place for dinner based on reviews...and it shares our name! It's a very unique experience. Seafood market case as you come in, a counter and a few tables in the back. Seafood cooked by the owner, served by his mother (she was very friendly and attentive)and tasted excellent. The atmosphere is very casual and food is served with disposable plates and silverware. Not a fine dining or even midrange table seating restaurant, but the food was fabulous. Good seafood is not "cheap eats" and this place had fantastic prices for what was provided...we were stuffed and smiling at the end of the meal....and cheap beers too! A must for tourists looking for a great seafood eating experience with no frills.
