This was a very good seafood restaurant in Albermarle. I had lived in the area years ago and we travel there at least once a year and have never tried this place. We came into the area in February and decided to try it out. I wish I would have eaten there sooner. The food was very good and... read more

Think of the sort of old-fashioned, Southern fish camp, and you pretty much have Blue Bay in a nutshell. This restaurant has been around for a while here in Albemarle (there used to be two in town! And both always busy!) and for good reason. Good, simple food... ample servings of it... and a reasonable price for all of it.... More

Eat here often! Servings are large and easily shared by two people. Alternate menu items for those who do not like seafood. Some of my family really likes the fried chicken items. Private seating area available for parties and large dining areas for easy seating. Nice restaurant!

A recent business trip took me to Albemarle, NC, during which I ate dinner at the Blue Bay Seafood Restaurant, located on E. Main Street. The restaurant, from their web site is part of a small chain, and as you would guess, specializes in seafood. This particular location is very large and open inside, and has a mix of booths... More

When ever we are in Albemarle, we try to eat at the Blue Bay Seafood Restaurant. Its alway really good. The fish, shrimp, and oysters are always delicious, and this visit was no exception. The service was really good, and our server was very friendly and helpful. I'd highly recommend it!!

Usually a good choice. I prefer broiled seafood and they tend to get it iverdone. But if you like Calabash Style Seafood you'll like Blue Bay

The hush puppies are so good it's hard to not get filled up on them before you get your order. I personally love the broiled shrimp with seasoning.

Following other reviews, I ordered the broiled seafood platter. It was the worst dinner I have had in a long time! Everything was grossly overcooked, some of it unrecognizable. The fish was very dry, almost powdery. The shrimp were rubbery. The deviled crab had no trace of crab.There was something else on the plate in a shell that was unrecognizable.... More
