We were there the Saturday before Easter & happened to see this place by accident as we drove to the aquarium. I was a little wary about the off beat-decor and setup but the food & people were great! I ordered the soup & it came out in a disposable paper bowl (i was surprised) but the taste was outstanding!... More

Went here two days in a row with my family. Food and service was great, it is not a regular restaurant though. It is basically a fish market that will cook you some food. They have fresh fish so the menu changes. There are only 3 tables so don't be surprised if there is nowhere to sit. We had fried... More

We were looking for just plain, good seafood, and Armstrong's had good reviews, so we have it a try. First, know that it is primarily a market. It has three tables, and they will cook up seafood and sides for you, but that doesn't seem to be their main business. In spite of that, though, we would go back in... More

If you want fancy - don't go. If you want AMAZING food and great service and a great price - this is the place. My girlfriend and I felt right at home. This was the best of several great meals we had in nags head. We are going to make this our first and most frequent stop when we're in... More

The seafood here is as fresh as you can get. The service was excellent, too. The ambiance was one of a place on a pier. Reminded us of Point Loma Seafood in SD, Ca. Cheers!

Excellent food and just an overall great dining experience. I ordered up the fried oyster plate with fries, my spouse had the fish sandwich. I can't even begin to tell you how tasty this was! We visited during the lunch hour, laid back atmosphere and the guy upfront was a pleasure. Truly made it a memorable experience. The price was... More

This place used to be amazing. We went 4 times a week in 2015. However, this past year was a disappointment. They were out of food, prices went up, and the food wasn't nearly as good. I understand prices must increase with the market, but the quality should not decrease.

We chose Armstrong's because of reviews and the reasonable price. When we arrived, the owners were the only other ones there, as it was so late in the year. We ordered the fried shrimp with cheese grits, and some crab chowder. The chowder was delicious, and was apparently someone's grandmother's family recipe. The shrimp were very lightly breaded, and the... More

The food is great! Ate twice while in town. We particularly enjoyed the fish chowder soup. Recipe is owners mother. You can buy and take home...we did! Loved the fried oysters which are lightly breaded. Excellent seasoned French fries. Not fancy, just good!

We picked this place for dinner based on reviews...and it shares our name! It's a very unique experience. Seafood market case as you come in, a counter and a few tables in the back. Seafood cooked by the owner, served by his mother (she was very friendly and attentive)and tasted excellent. The atmosphere is very casual and food is served... More
