I have lived in eastern NC for 58 years and going to the Sanitary (Tony's) Restaurant was a tradition my Grandmother started way back when but something has gone terribly, terribly wrong. It was the worst seafood I have ever attempted to eat. I wanted to order a soft shell crab dinner with a side of shrimp. Was told by the waitress they did not sell it like that and that if I wanted a side of shrimp, I would need to order a shrimp cocktail or get a senior’s shrimp dinner. What???? I asked how many crabs came on the dinner and was told three. The waitress brought out the shrimp cocktail that smelled very fishy. The lettuce was fresh but the shrimp were old. I didn’t eat it. Thirty minutes later, she shows up with a single (cold) fried crab and tells me that she was mistaken about the crab dinner. I got up, paid for my tea and left. Save your money and go to the Fish Hooks Café in Belhaven, NC. The seafood is ultra-fresh and you won't need to sell a kidney to pay for it.
