Breakfast for sure

Batson's is the old style of North Carolina coastal restaurant, and all the better for it. It shares a building with a gun shop, and I usually tell people to look for the Guns & Ammo sign to find Batson's. Breakfast is my meal at Batson's, and they do it up big.

We go for the hushpuppies which they bring in a basket as part of the meal. The menu consists of your typical fried or broiled seafood choices. Service is very friendly, but a tad slow.

We went for lunch on June 30, 2015. We got the seafood platters which were great! They also had a lunch plate like----Chicken with 2 vegetables, bread, dessert and beverage for around $6.00. You can't beat that. Our seafood was reasonably priced and was very fresh and served hot. The waitress was excellent and very attentive! We were looking a... More

On our ride around town for breakfast, we saw a parking lot full of cars at Batson's and decided to give it a try. There did not seem to be that many people in the restaurant, so getting a table was no problem. But from that point on, the wait was on, and on, and on. We ordered simple breakfasts,... More

We were greeted as soon as we walked in. The food was great, our server was cheerful and checked back on us often. The prices were good. It is family friendly. We went back a couple of times.

Trip advisor is usually pretty accurate, with the exception of the obvious really picky reviewers that we try to weed out. This is the second time in one trip that we were really let down by trip advisor. We wanted seafood and everywhere we tried to go had over an hour wait. So we were excited they had no wait... More

The restaurant is decorated well in bright colors, and they have TVs for you to watch if you want. There was only one family there when we arrived for supper, but by the time we left it was filling up fast. I tried the soft shell crab sandwich. It was the first one I've ever had. My young son got... More

I have to admit I was disappointed overall. The quality of food was not equal to the price. There were several flies in the restaurant, buzzing around and on us as we ate. The food was just okay. There were mostly older couples eating here, maybe there is a loyal local following here. It was busy and hard to find... More

Great value for your money. Breakfast is always very good. Seafood is excellent. Weekends are very crowded - get there early!
