Just what a seafood joint in NC should be. 3 of us ordered a lunch special, a dinner special, and 2 sides. Fish fillets were white perch, the shrimp was fat and juicy, the oysters fat and gooey, scallops were just OK, and the fried crabs were sweet and crunchy. Two meals had way too many fries, next time we might just order off the sides menu. Everything was very clean, the service was fast and friendly, we left well fed and happy for under $30.

Followed on a hunch some previous reviewers suggestions. Stopped in on 4/11/13 during the middle of lunch time. No wait, placed the order at a counter, grabbed a seat and moments later picked up our sandwiches. Where can you get a crab cake sandwich for $3.99 and a soft shell crab sandwich for $4.29. Even if they didn't taste good the price was right, but they were good. Crab cake was small, not a lot of backfin and it was one softshell on the sandwich but both tasted fine.

This is a no frills sandwich shop, mainly fried seafood but a great alternative to the burger chains.

Thank you Trip Advisor reviewers for finding this one! The comments were all so favorable that we stopped by for a late lunch and weren't disappointed. Simple white building with blue awnings was easy to find on the right on 17N. Even at 3 pm on a Thursday afternoon the parking lot was full with diners/shoppers buying fresh seafood. The decor is simple and set-up like a fast food restaurant by placing your order at the front counter, finding your own seating and picking up your order when your number is called. I ordered the shrimp/oyster dinner which consisted of 8 crispy fried oysters, 8 lightly seasoned/battered shrimp, 5 homemade hushpuppies and a side of fresh chopped slaw for $7.99. The oysters were a little too salty and deeply fried for my taste, but very fresh. The coleslaw a little too finely chopped. I just prefer it shredded with more texture, but it was still tasty. The shrimp was wonderful! Lightly seasoned/breaded. Hushpuppies had great texture - - - buttery/crisp on the outside and moist w/o the large onions inside. The pre-packaged Kraft tartar sauce was ok, but the Kraft cocktail sauce is terrible. If they would make their own cocktail sauce w/ some fresh horseradish... it would make it oh so much better... On the way out we stopped by the market and picked up a pound of the steamed shrimp for dinner w/ Old Bay seasoning and some crabmeat. The shrimp, again, was very good with MY homemade cocktail sauce (heavy on the horseradish), but haven't had the crabmeat yet... Great find!

Modest appearance, best seafood around. No one prepares better fried shrimp. This is quality seafood. Also, have a very good fish market. Can not be beaten in E.C.
