Nothing fanct about this place, but if you're into casual seafood, this is the place to go. Oysters steamed and on the half shell, steamed shrimp, crab dip, hush puppies etc. What's not to like?

I ordered last night's specials; a shrimp and corn chowder very , very flavorful. nothing special about the price and Fried Oyster platter- also very good but also a great bargain. Plenty of fried oysters, they were small oysters, not big fat ones, but the breading was good, they were not greasy, cooked just right. Hush puppy was a bit... More

Always come here! Brought some friends and this was their first time. We loves every bite!!! I always get crab cakes and they are full of crabmeat. My husband lives for the steamed oysters and clams!!!

It's always busy and crazy during the season but it's worth the wait. It's basically seafood anyway you want it. My wife had a steam combo #3 and I had the fried oyster platter. Everything was excellent.

We were looking for a place for a drink and oysters.....this place had mixed reviews but we found it just right for our dining. We ate upstair and while it was dark the view in the daytime must be excellent as it is across from a fishing pier and open to the ocean....We each had a mixed drink which were... More

We visit the Nags Head, NC area every year for a family vacation with multiple generations. We go to Arthur's every year. We enjoy the atmosphere and the food. OK, it's not exceptionally good, but it is good and enjoyable.

Solid product. Never have had a bad experience or meal. They can flat to seafood right. Clams, oysters etc... and a good mixologist. I go back each time I visit. Think I'll need the XXL T-Shirt next time...

There are times that one should pay attention to the restaurant's name. In this case my apologies to Arthur but the Awful part is totally correct. The service was not great but was the high he food was deep fried and overdone. The best I can say is we survived. Would not recommend this for any reason.

Food was awesome! No complaints there. Service could use some work. Had to always stay the waitress and ask for the drinks to be refilled. My oldest daughter has a serve gluten allergy, we asked about getting grilled shrimp instead of the fried. Didn't seem like a problem. Got the food, and it would fine. Then we got the bill,... More

We went here tired from a day of running around so perhaps my complaints should be tempered. We were seated right away by a very rude no nonsense girl who could care less if were existed. I'm surprised she didn't throw the menus when she sat us she was that unhappy. We ordered our drinks and the kids meals first... More
