Went here with extended family. We had a blast. Our server was attentive, fun, and playful. The food was good and the servings were plentiful. We all left here feeling very satisfied.

If you're in a hurry and it's a peak time...keep on to Calabash. We had a great dinner on Labor day...short wait, friendly staff, reasonable prices. They don't have a big dining area so big groups could have issues. Time it right and you won't experience the 1 star ratings!

This restaurant has been around for all of the years we have been coming here, but we have not eaten there for 18 of them. Oh, the fish tastes so fresh! I'm sure it is because there is a fish market underneath. Almost every table is located by the window, so we had great water views. The service is friendly.... More

First time here. Had the steamed shrimp, which were good but a little spicy. Loved the hush puppies. Most of my party had crab cake sandwiches with good reviews.

The meal was very enjoyable, however, the service was slow. I know there are issues that customers don't know about, but there were empty tables with a 20 minute wait. Waiters disappeared for long periods of time... It took over half an hour to get the correct balance on our check.

I lovingly call this a seafood dive - we live an hour away and will be back. My Crabbie Oddwater Combo was good and had a broad selection of seafood. Two of our party got "buckets"...actually a large size roasting pan. The Bucket of Legs had 3 large crab clusters. Bills Hellacious Barge "bucket" will guarantee you a take home... More

We had been there last year and the food was very good. The food was still good, but the place seemed a little worn out this time. So, not bad but there are better places.

This is our first time visiting Sunset Beach, and we were looking forward to an enjoyable seafood dinner. We have been spoiled by the staff at Awful Arthur's in the Outer Banks. My husband and I sat at the bar to be able to watch some of the Summer Olympics. The bartender was not personable at all. Never asked if... More

So we parked in the back and since there was a sign that said CRABBY ODDWATERS UPSTAIRS...we followed the stairs upstairs. We you kind of walk in behind the hostess stand and kitchen area. It feels like you aren't supposed to come in that way. So we stood in front of the hostess stand and waited...and waited. It was 3pm,... More
