Quality Seafood Market is a locally owned seafood restaurant and retail store located in downtown Elizabeth City, NC offering a variety of fresh seafood along with a full menu of North Carolina homestyle dinners.
Our second time eating at Quality Seafood... the first time was an experience to be had, full of locals, loved listening to them talk, everyone knew each other. The food was delicious, portions huge. So when we knew we were coming back to the Coast...Guard Famcamp we wanted to go back. Upon entering, silence....no greating, no welcome. The woman taking the order had the worst attitude, like she could care less about customers. You would think that they would be happy to have customers since the COVID pandemic.....nope. our food was ok, fish sandwich where the fish was overcooked. I was going to go up and order hush puppies but because of her attitude I decided not to spend any more money or time there than needed.More
My son and I were in town for one night and wanted some decent fried shrimp. This place had glowing reviews, so I thought we'd give it a shot.
They were very busy which of course is always a good sign.
The staff...was very friendly and the restaurant seemed very clean.
The service was very quick.
When we pulled into the parking lot, there was a very long drive thru line. Signs on the side of the building said "We're open! Drive thru and carry out". We sat in the drive thru line for nearly 20 minutes only to be told when we got to the window that it was only for call in orders. I don't begrudge them for that decision, but the signage on the building was very deceptive.
More importantly, our shrimp.was incredibly salty. Almost inedible salty. I wonder if someone in the kitchen screwed up and salted it twice. We ended up throwing most of it away. The fries and slaw were good though.
I'd give them another chance if I ever went back to Elizabeth City, but it sucks that a not-cheap dinner during our one night stay was such a disappoinment.More
I have never eaten at the restaurant, but it's always busy when I go in to the fish market side. I have bought raw shrimp there several times to prepare at home. The shrimp and other seafood and fish always looks very fresh, the facility...is clean, there are no "fishy" odors, the staff is knowledgeable and friendly, the prices are very reasonable, and the quality is excellent. Quality Seafood is very aptly named and I highly recommend it!More
Old bay seasoning is horribly wrong but this place is pretty darn good. Coming from a coon-azz you cant go too wrong here. Only disappointment was when asked the market side if they can get crawfish they looked at me like I'd lost my mind.
