“Fresh seafood & generous portions!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

Decided to stop on our trip through NC after seeing good rating on TA. So glad we did. We ordered broiled salmon & whitefish with sides. Salad & hush puppies were also included. Everything was very tasty & fresh & vey generous portions. Gr8 place! P.S. The wall murals were awesome, too!

“Food is the best in town.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

My husband and I have visited this area before. And thoroughly enjoy Blue Bay. My husband ordered the broiled platter, and I the fried and then we shared. We had flounder, shrimp, oysters, stuffed crab, and clams. Their food is fresh. They offer many different plates. With Flounder, red snapper, shrimp, oysters, clams, crabs., and They also offer fried chicken, and burgers.
This is the best Seafood in town by far.

“Not what I am used to”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

Coming to NC from Florida can be a bit of a culture shock. I am accustomed to fresh, well prepared seafood. The Oyster stew we ordered was made with spoiled milk! and the raw oysters I ordered were chilled grocery store type, not served on the "half shell" as is customary. The tuna is obliviously cryo-pack frozen steaks.
I suppose if you order fried everything the food is passable.
