The owner and staff are nice enough, but lets face it. The food just isn't good. It is NOT fresh local seafood, and this is evident after looking at the menu and eyeballing the buffet.

When we ate at Carolina Seafood, we were very disappointed. We thought the price was ridiculous for the quality of food which was mediocre and bland. Do yourself a favor and stay far away from this tourist trap.

The outside may fool you, but the inside will please you. Great friendly staff with wonderful seafood. True, the crablegs aren't OBX caught, however they offer fresh caught local seafood including tuna, dolphin(mahi), swordfish, grouper, shark, clams, blue crabs, etc. Set in a pirate theme,...More
