This is a small restaurant where you sit on a benches outside to form a line to get in.....the wait wasn't long but the service and food were great! The Saturday special is amazing.....a huge pile of shrimp, clams and deviled crab or any combination, fries, Cole slaw, iced tea, and tax for $8. The seafood is lightly battered and... More

They have great seafood and daily specials. The dining room is quaint with no frills. There is a walk up window outside to order to go or eat at their outside tables.

Looks can be deceiving. Earlier in our trip, we had eaten at a large, "fancy" restaurant, and the food was terrible. The Seafood Hut is a throwback to the fifties - small and homey. We had seafood platters, and they were melt-in-your-mouth good, from the fried shrimp to the deviled crab to the scallops and the fish that covered the... More

For lunch, the special is the way to go! For $8.00, we had 3 items (fried shrimp, mussels, and deviled crab) french fries with drink included. We could have had selected only one of the items and it would have been 3 x the normal order but we selected all three. And the portions were still a good amount. We... More

This was our second time here, both times with my 97 year old mother in tow who uses a walker.. She loves the shrimp here, but unfortunately their restrooms are not handicap friendly. It would be easy to install grab bars near the toilets for people like my mother and others to use. We had to take her somewhere else... More

We get takeout at this restaurant because it is so easy. The food stays hot so that you can bring it back to the beach for a picnic. It is typical Calabash fried seafood, but not greasy or too much batter. Not highly seasoned so you can add tartar sauce or marinara sauce and still enjoy the taste of seafood.... More

This restaurant has delicious fried seafood, large portions and great prices. My husband got the deluxe platter with fish, deviled crab, oysters, scallops and shrimp. It came with french fries, coleslaw and hush puppies. His meal was a little over $16. I got a side of clam strips and a large coleslaw that was plenty for me to eat and... More

This is the best seafood anywhere! Very lightly battered and very crisp as well as fresh! Love this place! My husband and I split the seafood platter and still can't eat it all!

A very dear friend of ours took us here for lunch while we were visiting.It may be small in size but it's BIG on yummy!! Apparently this is the original seafood restaurant in Calabash. Even though it was crowded for lunch, we were seated right away and our server was over to the table in short order. The food arrived... More
