“A firm favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

Calabash Café is a family favorite... Birthdays, anniversaries, romantic dinners, quiet time, and more are all enjoyed here. The owner and his family take the business seriously, as do the staff, and it shows. Every dish is an experience, every meal a delight, and though it's not the fanciest of locations, it serves its patrons just fine. I can't recommend one dish over another, they're all just delicious. Try it.. You won't be disappointed.

“Excellent food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

Both the quality of food and the service are excellent. I stay here for quite a while and I do not get tired of the way seafood is prepared, fresh from the sea.

“Good food, good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2012

Eventhough the spot is not that special in Sea Cliff Court, the Calabash does offer really good food and good service.
