We visited with extended family (party of 18) and were so pleased with the excellent service received! We ordered a variety of different entrees and not one of us had a complaint. Our waitress was fabulous and efficient with a wonderful sense of humor. I highly recommend you give this restaurant a try. You won't be disappointed.

Came in over Labor Day weekend to large crowds. The staff and service here is extremely good. Very polite and no delays out of the kitchen. Our food was fresh and well prepared. This is worth the drive. The manager reported that the oyster bar will be open by October 15. Well worth the trip.

We stopped her on our way to New Bern from Emerald Isle and found it very "homey". The atmosphere is casual, almost too casual, and the service was not the best but the food was good. I had popcorn shrimp (fried) which was delicious, but interestingly looked exactly like my daughter's more expensive deveined shrimp. Anyway, hubby had a landlubber's... More

First off, T & W Oyster Bar is not located close to Morehead City. It's much further out and I don't know that it's worth the drive. Yes, the hush puppies are delicious and come free as an appetizer. Yes, our server (Brooke) was terrific. But, I don't know if it is enough to overcome the drab interior and fried... More

Wanting good seafood at the beach, we went here for dinner and when heading home, got takeout. Seafood was good - not great. Atmosphere leaves much to be desired. Workers and manager at restaurant very nice. Average prices. Kids burgers were burnt though.

Ordered a 4 item seafood combo of clams, oysters, spicy catfish nuggets and scallops with cole slaw as a side. Great hush puppies and lots of them. Pretty good ice tea as well. Guaranteed you will not walk away hungry or disappointed. Service was really good as well. Will definitely come there again on our next trip through NC.

Some slight change with the new owners but overall the same. We went twice in a week. First visit ordered the clam bake and it was missing the clams. They were quick to make it right. Visit 2 was snow crab one cluster was "dirty" really shouldn't have been sent out of the kitchen but again they fixed it. Overall... More

You HAVE to have the she-crab soup! Second best I've ever had (Dirty Dog at Murrells Inlet, SC has the top seed). We stayed in Emerald Isle for a week and went back twice. Would have gone more if they had been open for lunch. It's had a road house atmosphere, and the staff is really friendly. My husband was... More

Our first visit to T&w since they changed owners. We found the seafood still very good, albeit the service was a bit slow tonight. The hush puppies were better when Earl owned the place, same recipe but larger puppies with less crunch. Overall same pleasant experience and we will be back.

Thank Bob D
