Crab cakes and flounder are awesome. Make sure to get the broiled crab cakes.They have a club in the back of restaurant which gets rowdy sometimes. Go early.

Not the seafood platter I had expected. It would have been nice to see your meal looking as if it were prepared just for you and not just tossed on a plate. Flavor was at best, average.

I have loved coming to Calabash since the '80's. Food is consistent and fast. This weekend, we thought we would take our grown children out for the All-you-can-Eat crab legs. Planned for it to be a special occasion and planned for the expense of it....More
