Went for dinner had the fried oysters w/sides.Oysters were cooked just right, one said the breading was a little salty,didn't notice.Sides were very good--salads, fried green tomatoes and grilled (?) green beans. Could of left off the hush puppies-tough,cold and tasteless. Service was fast,personal,and great. A very nice little out of the way place to eat

We were just wondering around and found this little place. Walked in and were seated immediately. Two adults and two kids. It appeared to be more of a bar scene but we were wrong. We ordered a fried seafood combo (clam strips, deviled crab, and crab cake), catfish sandwich, grilled chicken salad, and the chicken florentine. The chicken florentine was... More

My wife my kids and myself had dinner here and were very satisfied. My wife and I shared a pick 2 fried seafood meal. Flounder and shrimp. The sides were fries and fried green tomatoes. It was extremely good and the cocktail sauce is amazing. The real stand out was the steamed shrimp appetizer. We got the half pound order.... More

I moved from Wilmington,NC to Charlotte, NC in 1996. Old Salty's makes me wanna move back! I have been to Carolina Beach a million times. Don't know how I ever missed this place before, but I am soooooo thankful for "discovering" it this time! My boyfriend and I stopped as we were leaving the beach. I HAD to have the... More

This place is close to our hotel, so we could easily walk there. Not a place I would pack up the family and drive to, but it is not as horrible as the previous reviews state. It's a little hole in the wall place that serves your typical seafood (frozen…not local) food. Most in my part got fried food….which was... More

The water tasted like it came straight out of the bathroom sink. The crab cakes were TERRIBLE, it was nothing but breading and IMITATION crab meat. This was the worst place we dined at during our trip. Never again!

Got hungry sitting by the water so we put the flip flops on and stumbled upon this little restaurant while walking the Carolina Boardwalk. Staff was super busy but managed to get all orders in at a reasonable pace. We had the chicken sandwich, a burger and the coconut shrimp. All were served hot and fresh with a generous quantity...

Went here for lunch and they wouldn't serve me a corn dog because they were low on corn dogs and they are saving them for kids!!! REALLY?!?!?! Instead they told me to go to another hot dog place...they rather loose money than serve me what I ordered?!?

Stumble upon this hole in the wall while walking in the area. Since we knew soft shell were in season decided to try one for lunch. While it was not the best we ever had, these were very tasty. Kids had hamburger and shrimp. They liked it was well. The only downside was that the waitress told my kids that... More
