This is my second trip to Elizabeth City and my third visit to this restaurant. The oysters on half shell were outstanding. I also had the crabmeat with butter and it was also great. They offer fresh seafood in season. Service was excellent too.

Good seafood and a pleasure to watch the guys work as you eat. You know it's fresh because they turn the business quickly.

This place is a no frills seafood joint that is only open seasonally. They give you plenty of fresh food and prices are quite decent.
