We love the food here and my husband eats there daily for lunch every year for the past 7 years, HOWEVER, for some reason this year we have experienced just in the past 3 days very rude service when we either call or visit. Their menu is marked "market price" but dont call for the prices, they are "too busy"... More

My family has been coming to OBX since 1976 and at least twice a week we get fresh seafood from Austins to cook at the cottage. Always fresh and their family can advise if you need any help. Many others have come and gone in our 40 years of visiting but Austin Fish Company remains the place to get the... More

We found Austin's to be very fresh, and they have excellent prices. We picked up clams and scallops to cook at the rental house. Will be back next year.

This family-owned and operated shop is well worth the stop, even if you're not hungry! Like stepping back in time a few decades, the little shop is loaded with fish and fixins clear to the ceiling. Great food, friendly, down-home service, and scores of old photos adorning the walls to keep you interested while they cook your lunch or dinner.... More

Had ordered live lobsters yesterday to pick up today at 2:00p.m. and they were ready! Asked her to have them steamed but was squeamish about 20 minutes! The woman actually steaming assured me they would be good...they've never had any complaints before! Well, I did what the woman told me at the checkout...put them on ice after one hour. I... More

Throughout a week we bought several pounds of deveined/cleaned shrimp to cook at home. Averaging around $13 a pound the shrimp always cooked up nice and tasty. The layout of the shop is terrible, but the service is good.

This is a real fish company but they will cook your seafood for you and have a small outside eating area. My sister had the flounder and I ordered 2 pounds of streamed shrimp (@ $7/lb (vs. the $26/lb some other places were charging). Shrimp was outstanding and I had enough left for another meal. Yumm!

Every year this is our first stop while on the way to Frisco. I always get the scallop meal and I'm my opinion they are the best in the OBX. These guys are here year after year because they have good service, great food, and competitive prices. While on vacation around here head on in to get either a prepared... More

Great FRESH seafood. We didn't take any home with us but would definitely do that next time. They only have fried food "dinners" but my son and I split the steamed shrimp and steamed crab. It was terrific and very cheap. Husband had fried shrimp and said it was terrific, too. There isn't a lot of seating but the food... More

Over our week, we went here repeatedly to get fresh local shrimp, and have them steamed. Delicious, instant dinner.
