Hi! Visiting Morehead City next weekend. I'm looking for the best seafood restaurant--just fried seafood, nothing fancy. Where do the locals eat seafood? Thank you!
Try Els Drivein....it is for sure nothing fancy. Car hops bring the food to you. One of the very best shrimp burgers around! Also, on the waterfront there are a number of calabash style restaurants that are very good and resonable price.
Thanks everyone for the suggestions!
I just returned from "Sammy's" on 6th street. The best fried seafood platter I've eaten. Wonderful staff also.
El's is good food ( cash only unless it changed ) , Cox is really good ( ALOT of locals go through even Military) . You can hit most of these from the main road on Arendell St. There are ALOT of great placces to eat at in the area though. Consider venturing to Atlantic Beach and Beaufort ! They offer some good places to eat also !!
I may be a little late here, but I am a local. I've eaten at just about every restaurant there is in Carteret County. My three main favorites are Ruddy Duck, Cox's and El's Drivein, in that order. Also, it depends on what you want to eat and if you want alcohol with it.
Thanks all for the suggestions!
