This place is a great little place on the beach to get oysters and other seafood. Its also a great place to sit back and watch all the people stroll by.

Good food, good service, good atmosphere. Food proportions were great for a group or single person. Highly recommend this place over Joe's Crab Shack.

The place doesn’t look like much, but we loved it. The staff was really friendly. They were attentive and quick to make suggestions. The shrimp was some of the best I’ve had in ages. Get it with the Old Bay spice.

I went here to have the “authentic experience” with my fiancé, and parents. We were all greatly disappointed. We were treated very rudely by a man with a beard behind the bar. He acted as though we were inconveniencing him and we were not valued...More

Don't go here expecting white tablecloth service. Do go here expecting great food and friendly people, and what else could you really ask for in Carolina Beach? The seafood is very good...give the steam pot a try and get a little bit of everything. Crab...More
