Our "go to" for fresh seafood. The guys there are knowledgeable and full of great tips for preparing your purchase. We love their seasoning and it's quick to have them steam the shrimp & scallops for you. Very entertaining staff make you feel welcome.

We had a fantastic meal of crab legs, shrimp, clams, and potatoes, all beautifully steamed, and perfectly spiced. The wait was a bit long, but well worth it, as it was the tastiest seafood meal we had on our trip to Nags Head. We felt the prices were reasonable, especially given the quality. Also, the guys working there were helpful... More

First of all what a gem! I walked in and ordered a steamer bucket not really knowing what to expect! The boys working behind the counter helped me out in picking out everything my family liked! It took only 15 minutes from start to finish and I found some great crab dip and salsa to pack in my beach cooler... More

Every year when we come to the Outer Banks for vacation we do a seafood night. They steam our shrimp and crab legs for us. They are always so friendly and helpful! In the past 10 years they have never disappointed us! We have also gotten fresh fish which is just as wonderful

And the service was just as good as the product. Got a couple of pounds steamed with light spice and they were a big hit when we got back to the house. From the time the shrimp were whisked in the back to be steamed and the time they got back, I barely had time to look around and see... More
