These folks know how to buy only the freshest oysters. Currently they are buying in "boat bags"; which weigh about 110 lbs. Open between Oct. to April insures only the best & freshest oysters. Experienced shuckers inspect each one before they place it on your...More

We love going to the oyster bar in Elizabeth City NC. The oysters are usually large and tasty. This time we had raw ones first, then steamed and then fried. Needless to say we ended up with a large bill but it was worth it.

I ordered oysters they were ok just not near done and cold. Wife ordered fish it was completely dried out. It had been cooked way to long. Fries good and coleslaw ok. Been there twice and both times the food was the same.

Always a good stop for raw oysters and steamed shrimp. Lots of locals but always great seafood. Not glamorous, just great seafood.

We went on a Saturday night (3/25/17) around 7:30 pm it was not overly crowded. We sat at the bar, we tried a dozen raw oysters, a peck of steamed oysters and 4 fried oysters. All 3 were great, they shucked the raw oysters on...More
