What a great first meal in Carolina Beach for our quick getaway! Loved that we could walk to it from our hotel. It's tiny but we found an open table. It was great! Best seafood I have had in the area. Much better than some other local establishments. Great atmosphere not at all pretentious like Michaels. Service was very good... More

The small oyster bar offers a nice atmosphere of Carolina. Staff is warm and friendly and no long waiting time. Fish and chips and sandwiches are good. Good halt in downtown CB 😊

Raw and steamed oysters both very good. Several beers on tap, friendly service. More locals the tourists (always a good sign).

This is not the place to go to for a romantic dinner. We sat at the bar and had a great time. My husband had a dozen oysters (the last of the local catch) he said the oysters were great. I had 1lb. of shrimp w/old bay and they were a good size with a great flavor. Fantastic. We had... More

Food~service~music~staff~decor Fell in love! This eclectic place is not to be missed. Enjoyed this so much more than fussy high dollar places at the beach. The food was the best we had all weekend. We got a shrimp and wing combo. Amazing, dont miss the wings! It was absolutely delicious and well priced for sure. The whole shack appeals to... More

I had oysters on the half shell and crab legs. I've had oysters that were much bigger but I've never had any that taste as good and the crab legs were excellent. My wife had the fish and chips and she said the fish was great.I can't wait to go back.

We went here for dinner, it's a small place. We had to wait a little bit. We ended up sitting at the bar which was perfect for us. Good selection of beer, wine and liquor. We shared a pound of peel and eat shrimp. They were soooooo good!! We could have came back again if we had time. Would definitely... More

Perhaps my expectations were too high because of all the great reviews, and in fairness, one could have a good time here, decent food, and excellent drinks. But waiting 35 minutes at the bar for a dozen raw oysters before 6 pm seemed a bit much, and the other person in my party, who ordered fish and chips, found both... More
