Very small restaurant with limited seating. Even when you get a seat the wait time can still be long before you get your food. The fried shrimp is good and the prices are good.

We went during Easter week, and were lucky enough to walk right in and get the only available table. We would have waited, though, the food is very good. The staff is very friendly and prompt. We got the specials which included fries and a drink for $8. I had the shrimp and fish, and my little one had the... More

We really enjoyed the wait staff and our waitress was fantastic. Very small dining area so there is almost always a wait, but it was worth it. The fried shrimp and fries were terrific. Not too impressed with the hushpuppies though, tasted like they were fried a few days prior.

Great place to eat. Hope you're hungry, my wife and I both ordered the deluxe platter. The food was fried perfectly. Enormous portions. We had enough to share for dinner the next night. Wait staff was fun and friendly, we've already told everyone we know who vacations at Myrtle.

Many people have recommended many other seafood places in Calabash, but our car always drives to the Seafood Hut! The hubs and I both ordered the small seafood platter-fish, shrimp and oysters lightly fried to perfection. I love that you can see the seafood through the breading! It comes with fries and slaw and a basket of hushpuppies. I also... More

This was a favorite spot to eat of my father in law when he was alive. We love it too because the seafood is fresh and cooked to order. I don't like buffet. The child's plate is a perfect portion for any adult. We will be back!

This place will make any New Englander feel right at home. Substitute delicious Carolina shrimp for whole belly clams, and you will be happy. The seafood is lightly fried, and with the traditional atmosphere any Clam Shack should have. We left full and happy last time, so we have already been back.

We ate dinner here and the prices are a little more for the dinner menu. The lunch menu is the way to go if you are in the area at that time. But the soft crab sandwich is totally delicious! No complaints what so ever! Our waitress was very busy with other customers so we didn't see too much of... More

No this is not a restaurant where you will get healthy food. But for Calabash Fried fish, this is the place to go! Filled to the brim with locals and for good reason. We went because of TripAdvisor and were not disappointed. The seafood is fresh, good quality. The staff was warm and welcoming. The food was amazing. Hush puppies,... More
