Took my son and his wife plus their triplets plus one along with my daughter, wife and myself to have a few oysters. We started off with seven dozen raw oysters on the half shell that were nice plump and large. Next we had three pecks of steamed oysters followed by fried oysters, fried shrimp and lump crabmeat in butter... More

This is my second trip to Elizabeth City and my third visit to this restaurant. The oysters on half shell were outstanding. I also had the crabmeat with butter and it was also great. They offer fresh seafood in season. Service was excellent too.

I went with three of my friends. We started with several pecks of steamed oysters and steamed shrimp. The price was good for oysters, but you need to understand they are not cheap. I then had the fried oyster and shrimp dinner. Each of us had a different dinner from scallops and oysters, clams and oysters to fish and shrimp.... More

My Wife and I went there 2 weeks ago and they said all tables were full and we had to wait. We waited about 30min. and in that time 3 other groups came in that the waitress talked to by name and were seated immediately while we sat there?! So if they do not know you! You may have to... More

Good seafood and a pleasure to watch the guys work as you eat. You know it's fresh because they turn the business quickly.

This place is a no frills seafood joint that is only open seasonally. They give you plenty of fresh food and prices are quite decent.

GPS (Magelan) lead us to an address with mobile homes for sale but no sea food restaurant. Bad try. We had to have dinner elsewhere.

This seasonal restaurant (oysters = a month with an R in them!) always has great seafood. The fried shrimp are nearly perfect without too much batter. The oysters whether steamed or on the half shell are great. We've been visiting for years and it is consistently good. It does get busy in the expected times with a line forming most... More

This was our second dinner here in almost 12 years of living here, and we have heard lots of rave reviews about the food. One of us had a dozen good raw oysters and the clam chowder (average). The other had the small plate of fried oysters (good, not amazing, slightly soggy), very good and crisp fries, and very finely... More
