The six of us went out here on the advice of a local on June 7th for dinner. We were served round hushpuppies while we were waiting for our food. Too much onion, and too greasy. Two of us had the special sampler plate, which consisted of one crab cake, one shrimp patty, and one scallop patty. The sides were field peas and fried squash. It wasn't very good. The food was edible at best. Too much grease, and yes, I am a NC native and have eaten a lot of fried seafood. The others in our party had boiled shrimp, and one had fried clam strips and shrimp. She is still throwing up this morning, but she isn't used to all the grease.
The prices were ok. My special sampler was 12.95, but I don't feel I got my money's worth. Skip it.

Good value and good food. The fried shrimp was very lightly breaded and flavorful. No alcohol is served so it is definitely a family restaurant

We went here most mornings for a week while on the island. Love the country ham biscuit and the home fries. Service was great and food good. Just a reliable place for breakfast

This place has an awesome breakfast. It seems that a lot of locals go here which is fun and a nice place to meet some new folks if you are visiting or new to the area. They also have the best fried seafood around at reasonable prices.

The only real drawbacks are the atmosphere, can be very noisy at times and the service can be a little slow during their busy times. All in all a good place to grab a cheap meal!

Batson's offers reasonable priced meals any time of the day. The food is Southern Style.
Breakfast is a great time to leave everyone sleeping and have a peaceful cup of coffee with your meal. Lunches are great, specials are offered, and the food is delicious. Have a crowd with a bunch of kids included, this is the perfect place for a family group. Tables are pulled together so everyone can sit together. The desserts are always great, especially the cakes!
