The last night of my stay I opted to get steamed shrimp from Autin's and eat it in the room rather than go out - what a deal!! The food was amazing and it was a much better deal than going out to eat.

If we are eating-in during vacation, we stop at Austin's. Vast selection of fresh fish, shrimp, crabs, as well as other frozen seafood or freshly prepared and steamer pot options for take out. They also have all the seasonings and condiments to make your seafood meal. We have never tried the prepared stuff but I always see people buying, so... More

Freshest Seafood at very reasonable prices. Staff is very friendly and helpful in helping you order. Boiled shrimp provided lunch on two occasions at very low cost per person. Also has freshly made sandwiches to order. Highly recommend Austin Fish Company.

This is a fish company that will cook up their product for you right on the spot. The soup and sides aren't anything special, but the seafood itself is well-cooked, and tastes like it was caught about five minutes ago! Try to the sea scallops. They were perfectly cooked--they'll melt in your mouth! Price for a big pile of fried... More

We love the food here and my husband eats there daily for lunch every year for the past 7 years, HOWEVER, for some reason this year we have experienced just in the past 3 days very rude service when we either call or visit. Their menu is marked "market price" but dont call for the prices, they are "too busy"... More

My family has been coming to OBX since 1976 and at least twice a week we get fresh seafood from Austins to cook at the cottage. Always fresh and their family can advise if you need any help. Many others have come and gone in our 40 years of visiting but Austin Fish Company remains the place to get the... More

We found Austin's to be very fresh, and they have excellent prices. We picked up clams and scallops to cook at the rental house. Will be back next year.

This family-owned and operated shop is well worth the stop, even if you're not hungry! Like stepping back in time a few decades, the little shop is loaded with fish and fixins clear to the ceiling. Great food, friendly, down-home service, and scores of old photos adorning the walls to keep you interested while they cook your lunch or dinner.... More

Had ordered live lobsters yesterday to pick up today at 2:00p.m. and they were ready! Asked her to have them steamed but was squeamish about 20 minutes! The woman actually steaming assured me they would be good...they've never had any complaints before! Well, I did what the woman told me at the checkout...put them on ice after one hour. I... More

Throughout a week we bought several pounds of deveined/cleaned shrimp to cook at home. Averaging around $13 a pound the shrimp always cooked up nice and tasty. The layout of the shop is terrible, but the service is good.
