Best seafood in the area. Prices are reasonable, you're given a lot for your money, and staff are friendly. It's a bit too noisy to eat in so I take mine to go. I love that they have the drive thru/pick up window; it makes things so convenient!

This is a combo market and restaurant. One orders at the front, takes a tray to the formica tables. No alcohol served. But the fish was so fresh and wonderful. Deep fried oysters were a hit, as was a broiled sole. The sides were a little lacking (hush puppies too sweet, fries a bit cold) but great slaw. Clearly a... More

The food is spectacular and the service is great. You get the most for your money if your dining on a budget and they never leave a customer disappointed. If you want great food at an affordable price this is the place for you!!

Seafood edible but no better than places far from the coast. Typical fried seafood. Hush puppies better than average.

The seafood here is about as fresh as you can get without being right at the beach. Their sides need to be worked on (just slaw and fries, even though you can double either one). Costs are about average and slightly better. Very tasty and family oriented.

Best seafood in TOWN!!! I am not a local, so when I travel to EC, it's a must stop to be made by me. During the summer months, be sure to get the Fried Crab!!!! It's dipped in batter, fried to perfection and MMMM MMMMM GOOD!! Because crab is "out of season", this trip I opted for the Broiled Shrimp... More

This is THE place to get your fish fix. We had a choice of fried or broiled plates which included awesome cole slaw and hush puppies. Fast service, seat yourself, great prices.

Ate here twice during my travels. Fried flounder was fresh. Say that 3 times real fast. Cole slaw was awesome. Service was very good. Nothing fancy just a basic Southern seafood restaurant. Was told by fellow patrons the shrimp, scallops, and catfish were very good. Place is clean, prices right, portions good size. Go, you won't regret it.

I moved to Elizabeth City 8 months ago and have made this my place to go for fresh seafood. Not a fancy restaurant but very clean and updated. The prices are very reasonable and the staff is friendly and fast.

The best southern fried seafood you'll ever taste. The crowd is just visual evidence that the food is superb. The name truly defines your satisfaction after you are done.
