This is THE place to go when you are in the Outer Banks!!! Every year when my wife and our two daughters visit Nags Head, we stop here a minimum 4 times in a week!

Stop by Austins to pick up fresh seafood to cook at home or in your beach cottage. Or have Austins cook it for you. Great selection of fresh seafood at reasonable cost.

Closed in the winter, I think it opens in March. We have been buying seafood from Austin's since the early 70's, always fresh. Great T shirts also.

We buy from Austin's every trip we make to the OBX. We also enjoy their steamed shrimp to-go. Reasonably priced.

We made 2 trips here in the week that we were in the area. Bought fresh shrimp both times. Cooked it up ourselves as the fryers were off for the season. Bought extra shrimp on... More

After stopping in at another seafood vendor the choice to buy from Austin's was easy!!! The scallops were SO good - no grit whatsoever - and only $15.99/lb!!! Shrimp was also delicious we walked out with 1lb. of scallops and 2lbs. of shrimp for four. We cooked everything at home that evening - spent $32 for a family of four... More

Too tired too cook and.too lazy to shower and dress, a steamer pot to go was the perfect answer for our beach house family get together. Call ahead, as we were almost too late. Everything you need, all tucked into a take-home pail. Everyone was happy!
