The restaurant was not crowded when we arrived, but I think the staff was short handed. However the food was excellent, fast, and they had our favorite beer, Hummingbird. Will eat there again.

Better seafood on the Island, I did not feel the seafood was fresh and not worth the price, better options for you

It's somewhat hidden...I've been to the Mexican establishment downstairs numerous times and never explored Olde Salty until TripAdvisor led me there. They have a decent menu with good pricing and 30 beers on tap. I opted for the flounder and wasn't disappointed...will definitely return.

The soft shell crab sandwich was good. Not the best I have had but the crab was cooked very well, just the flavor was overwhelmed by all the tartar on the sandwich. The fries are very good and the onion rings are great.

Best crab legs on the island! Has a good variety of food choices for those who enjoy seafood and those who do not. Brenda the owner has another good location for the restaurant on the main drag. Has both inside and outside dining.

We tried this restaurant on night #2 of our Carolina Beach stay, and I wish we had found it first! The coconut shrimp was amazing! We went early and it was hardly crowded, perfect for our little family to sit on the patio!

This place has been around a while, having moved from the boardwalk. Brenda--the owner--is very personable, and the character of the place reflects her charming saltiness. The friend onion rings are delicious: thinly sliced, light batter. And the friend flounder and peel-n-eat shrimp were tasty....More

We need a quick lunch late in the day and couldn't have been happier. All the food was fresh and tasty and the girl serving us had her A game going even though it was past the usual lunch hour. The kids were happy with...More

My friend and her daughter ordered seafood and enjoyed their meals. I ordered steak and while it was tasty, it was very chewy. The server was very friendly, restaurant was clean, and the baked potato was great. Should have heeded my son's rule: Never order...More
