We ordered the captain's choice which was the perfect mix of seafood for 6 people (they claim it feeds four). Shrimp, clams, crab, crawfish, and lobster. All steamed to perfection. It also came with potatoes and corn. They shouldn't include the corn, it was a mushy mess. A few days later we just ordered the seafood fresh and cooked it ourselves. Great prices and great seafood! Stopping by on the way home to stock our freezer.

We got some excellent fresh flounder, crab, and shrimp to take home and cook, but our experience with lunch on the patio wasn't impressive. Fried seafood a bit overcooked and sides nothing to write home about. We had better cooked seafood at every other restaurant we ate at in 2 wks. on the Outer Banks. But the market would be my first choice for seafood to take home and cook. My ratings are an average of the market and restaurant. We considered our lunches below average, the fresh seafood selection and quality above average.

We wanted great seafood and we found it here! Wish we had saved the money from dinner last night at a local restaurant and spent it here instead! Actually wound up spending about half as much for twice the food. We got scallops, snapper, tuna, and Mahi and everything was wonderfully fresh and tasty!

Fresh seafood either fried or broiled to order. Served with sides, more food than most can eat. We tried the grouper fingers, clam strips and scallops. All were great and well prepared.
Just grab your dinner and sit at the picnic tables to enjoy. Fresh, quality seafood for sale as well if you want to take it home or to your beach rental. We looked at steamer buckets too, but decided on the individual dinners.
Very affordable and consistently well done - we make this a stop on our annual trip.

Basically this is a fish market but they serve limited fish items on the menu and you can eat on their covered pato. We ordered the Grouper and we two sides plus hush puppies this is a great value for $8.95. They only fry or boil so we had it fried and it was fresh, cooked right, and delicious. As our sides we chose Mac & Cheese (outstanding), Cole Slaw (OK, but too sweet), Chips (homemade potato chips which were good), and potato salad (a bit bland and sweet). As you can
tell we do not like sweet food. The patio was a little warm but comfortable and besieged with flies. So many we had to scarf down the food. This is why most customers do take-out. I think all the fish is probably good so go with a fish entree with Mac & Cheese and Chips. Great value.
