“A last minute stop after seeing their sign”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

I stopped at the frost Seafood House while heading home from the beach due to the fact that they had bluefish. Bluefish is my favorite fish, but one that I've seldom had the opportunity to have since I moved from Virginia. So I couldn't pass the chance even though I wasn't hungry yet. The restaurant had ample parking and looked to have two separate entrances. The second entrance towards the back didn't have the specials board so people continuously were walking up front.

Since I already knew what I was having, I didn't pay much attention to the menu. However it looked to have a nice selection of seafood, sandwiches and other options (including steak). The lunch specials included two sides and iced tea for less than $8 each. The bluefish came out lightly fried and was very good. While I prefer it broiled, it still was definitely worth eating.

The restaurant surprisingly wasn't too crowded. Don't know if this was because it was a Sunday or most people were spending their lunch hour on the beach before the rain came. The atmosphere was nice and what you would expect of a seafood restaurant along the coast. You will find nice portioned food that is both of high quality and at an affordable cost. I would definitely recommend Frost Seafood House while in the Emerald Isle area. You can also call in (which apparently a lot of people did given the phone rang non-stop) for take-out.

“Bland”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

Nice waitress, but my wife totally agreed that the food was bland!! From the hush puppies to the seafood - everything was bland. My shrimp was lukewarm. My green beans were bland. The rolls probably came from Wal-Mart. I expect this kind of bland seafood from the frozen section of a grocery store. Sorry, but way too expensive for the lack of food quality. My wife "fished" about 6, one inch long bones out of her flounder (which was bland). Food was on the table very quickly, probably too quickly...

“Fast Service, So-so Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

Fast service but the food was mediocre. Soft shelled crab was tough, chewy and bland. Prime rib was dry. Best part of the meal was the hush puppies.

“Just average”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

Frozen clam strips in a beach seafood restaurant not acceptable. Service OK but quality of food not good. Value not there. Atmosphere not changed in 25 years.
