Enjoyed a Holiday stop here for some oysters and brews. It's a "dive", but hey you are at the beach. Service good, oysters yummy, as well had cheese bites to accompany beer and oysters.

Sat at the bar and had pretty good seafood, cold drinks and a great time. Liked it so much I went the very next night. Was close to our hotel and was a great way to start off the night.

Went there for lunch and had their oysters which were great. Watched a football game in open air restaurant and found it to be very relaxing.

The service was great! The food was fresh, and the atmosphere was fun and festive. Awesome. I had the steamer basket (pick 3) with shrimp, crab legs and mussels. My husband had steamed shrimp and Thai chili chicken wings. Everything was delicious. Thanks for everything.

After reading many reviews for this bar/restaurant we wanted to give it a try during our stay at Carolina Beach. We waited about 15 minutes for a table, assuming it must be good if there is a wait. It’s a very small place, not a...More

This is a sports bar situated in the middle of town. We walked in and sat down at a table. Apparently we should have waited to be seated but it's very dark and quite loud and no-one notice us. As a result no-one came to...More

Licia, we are very disappointed to hear about your experience. While we are a "seat yourself" restaurant, you should have been greeted right away. This will be addressed with our staff. We hope you will give us another chance for a good shuckin' time.

Went there twice for oysters on half shell and a few beers. Enjoyed both visits. Doesn't look like much from the outside. We'll go back.

I tried this place because of the menu and it was within walking distance of my hotel. I loved it! I had crab legs and oysters along with some cocktails. The service was fantastic and so was the food and cocktails!
