Great tasting fresh fish and suprising hush puppies served as a appetizer. Husband hates them but loved these. Wonderful help and good food as well.

Brought a cousin here that was vacationing from Ontario. Thought he would enjoy the view of the water. I ordered the lunch special which was extremely small. When I said something about portion size the waitress pointed out that is was the lunch special, that's all you get. She returned to the table with a few more fried shrimp in... More

Haven't been to Calabash in awhile. So, on a rainy day on Caswell Beach, Oak Island, we drove to Calabash for lunch. I remembered the several places right on the Intracoastal waterway. (Look for the brown sign to Historical river area) which is River road. The shrimp was just as good as I remembered. The fish choice was ok at... More

Very good seafood. Servers are friendly. Food is served in very reasonable amount of time, being they are usually very busy. One of the best restaurants in calabash. Prices very reasonable. They have an early bird special. Same serving size but cheaper. Good deal. They have weekly lunch specials too.

The fried Perch was fantastic, but the fried Sea Trout was filled with bones. Fried shrimp were fall, almost popcorn shrimp, but tasted okay. Our service was pretty horrible and I am not sure we would ever go back, especially with the nicer/newer Captain John's right next door, which is also much bigger and has outdoor seating.

Waste of time and money. So dissapointed. Grilled Salmon was overcooked. My wife had the crab cakes and we have had better quality out of frozen box at the grocery store.

We drove from Myrtle Beach as we were looking for calabash seafood and found this restaurant. We waited for about 15 minutes, so we figured it must be good if you have to wait and saw some reviews that listed it as good. I ordered the lunch special of shrimp and fish. I have NEVER seen shrimp so small -... More

The fresh broiled Tuna steak was awesome, love the hush puppies with the sweet honey butter. My niece loved the food too.

The service was not great. 1 server to wait on 19 people is rediculous. The server we had was the only good thing about the entire night. He did the best he could do under the circumstances. The hostess set us outside and no one ever came out to wait on us. We had to come back in to get... More
