Love the fact they have daily specials and the portions are perfect. Fish with great sides and a large bowl of hush puppies. Sooo good. Definitely worth going to and yes, the fountain inside is gorgeous.

My wife and I eat here often. The food in general is good. The Canadian Flounder is the best. Something about the Flounder from Canada because it does not have a dark side. I love it and get it most of the time. The fan tail scrimp is good also. They also grill a pretty good steak. My wife loves... More

Blue Bay offers fantastic seafood. You get plenty on your plate. Most people will need a to-go plate.

We stopped here while passing through on vacation. Service is prompt, friendly, and attentive. Ample menu of largely fried seafood. They do have broiled options, I had perch. It was decent. The fried stuff had a nice breaking. Onion rings are homemade and good. Servings are huge, nobody finished. Restaurant was busy with the after church crowd. Everyone seemed pleased... More

My family and I recently dined here and it was excellent! The fish was fixed perfectly, light and flaky but not greasy at all. My children absolutely loved their baked spaghetti, which was a very generous portion covered with lots of melted cheese. The staff is very attentive and helpful. A great place to eat!

This is a seafood restaurant that also has good fried and grille chicken and steaks for variety. The portions are large, they also have a meeting room, but you must reserve it in advance and they require a certain amount of food to be ordered. They have daily specials for the budget minded. Seafood can be ordered broiled as well.

We just returned from the coast where we thought we had our fill of seafood. Coming into Albemarle we came across this seafood restaurant and went in. What a wonderful decision we made! Great location, excellent service, very clean, but most importantly, seafood that compares nicely to what we found along the Outer Banks. Flounder and shrimp was excellent and... More

When I was here I made the mistake of ordering two large fish plates and these were to go, BIG mistake. There is almost no way one person can eat this. The second trip my wife and I ordered a small fish and shrimp plate and both had plenty to eat. The biggest thing is the seafood was GREAT. When... More

Popped in with 15 friends just before opening. They let us in a little early gave us drinks and hushpuppies! Service was super and food was as well. Manager came out and checked on us and that's how you keep customers. Great!
