Felt like home but with GREAT food. Buffet always hot & people always there to slice the prime rib, fill the trays of salads, veges, or the many different sea foods to choose from. The staff greats you so warmly & quickly, you are seated in a flash and you are on your way to food wonderland. Then watch out for George, he comes around and emptys your shells bucket before you can boo even if there are just 2 shells, he smiles the whole time, Sandy, one of the part owners is a Blessing & a Doll. There is not 1 thing I could say BAD about this place or the people & be telling the truth. The Carolina Seafood is the best in the Outerbanks You gotta try it.

One word......NASSSSSSTY. Most if not all the food was cold and rubbery. Pour the butter over anything you get so it has atleast some taste and heat on it. Forgot our drinks and hard to get refills. As others have said it is in a trailor. At least our dogs enjoyed the "food." Banana pudding wasn't bad but that was the highlight of the trip. Make sure you don't need the bathroom....overheard someone saying it was scary. $25.00 + a drink.....save the money and get the same food from Food Lion and cook it at home for less the half the price.

This was our second time back and it was just as good as our first trip. Our waitress was funny and the service was great. The buffet had enough choices on it that a picky eater had enough to eat. It's a small place, but it adds to the atmosphere. We will continue to make Carolina Seafood a tradition when we come to the OBX.

This restaurant was recommended by a friend who frequently stays in this area. It definitely is an all-you-can-eat facility! We took heed and made sure we were there early (just before 5PM). Seating was done very quickly and service was spot-on.

There were NO problems with finding something to eat for 4 adults and 1 pre-teen. Clams and whole crabs were not on the buffet but were quickly served when we asked, and we asked often!

Overall, the seafood selection was very good and more than met our expectations for a buffet-style restaurant. Service was very good and delivered with a smile.

Okay we went to Carolina Seafood on Saturday Aug 25th, 2012 not crowded at all as I have seen in previous years. A very small selection but the crab legs were pretty good! I ate mainly the crabs legs and stayed away from the fried stuff. The hush puppies would have been good had they not been sitting by something with powdered sugar. I don't like sweet hush puppies and they had powdered sugar on them :( The one ladies bathroom was very tiny and in a weird place. You would think they would at least update the bathroom and it was dirty. I won't be going back again...
