This is a local place that the locals really go to and the best thing is that there is lots of fresh seafood. You have a good selection of original style appetizers and entrees. This includes some of the freshest oysters I had the whole time in OBX. Prices are not cheap but they are reasonable and you definitely get... More

We visited Kill Devil Hills NC between 8-12 October 2014. Our rental house was not more than a quarter mile from Awful Arthur's and we had a couple dinners there during this trip. The place isn't glamorous, but the food each visit was outstanding. Be sure to get some shrimp with your meal. The fried flounder was particularly good. Next... More

At least they have been for the last 2 years. Great steamed oysters & shrimp, used to have New Castle beer on draft, not sure if they still do but if so, drink one for me! A little pricey but so is really good seafood.

Price was good for a lot of yummy oysters. Although the little live crabs in the oysters were surprising and a little weird.

Friends & I eat here often, 'tho just for lunch. Friendly staff, some of the best creamy crab soup on the beach + great oysters on the half shell! Terrific burgers too, 'tho portions tend to be huge with lots of fries, so it's great for kids & families looking for a relatively inexpensive place to eat. One caution: anything... More

Our family stopped in for a late lunch/early dinner. I expected a lot of tasteless fried food.....boy was I WRONG! Everything we had was great...oysters on half shell (and the little crabs were in some of them!), crab cake (broiled), sauteed scallops, Bad Barrachud's Bites (these were out of this world!), and other things but all in all this is...
