“Fresh local seafood...the best!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Austins, on the Bypass at MP 12 or so in Nags Head has fresh seafood from local catches every day from Spring to Fall. They will steam shrimp, crab, and other shellfish when available, and also sell steamer pots to take out and cook at home. Their daily selection of fish is THE BEST around! If it's being caught nearby, they probably have it, and it is fresh.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

This was the only time I have ever been to Austin. It was clean and pleasant, but I was very disappointed in the selection. They closed for the season the next week, so that may have been the problem. Judging from the other reviews, I would definitely give them another shot, but on this trip I was underwhelmed.

“The total Package!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

The Austin Fish Company has the freshest seafood in the OBX area! Their sanitation & cleanliness is superb! You can eat there, take out, or pick out your favorite fresh seafood or NC shrimps to take home & prepare yourself, it's all great! Don't forget to try their chowders, too!
