This is the quintessential seafood market experience. I have been vacationing on Topsail for years and have never been disappointed with what they purvey. The service is friendly and congenial and Thomas's daily selection of fresh fish is amazing! Their is local produce, as well as a well stocked array of fishing tackle and bait.

We have been getting shrimp here for 30+ years. We usually have shrimp 3 times the week we are here. Very helpful staff. They are happy to put it over ice for you too. Shrimp is terrific. We have occasionally gotten fish which was also very good. Wouldn't go anywhere else.

We've been going to Thomas Seafood for many years, whenever we vacation at Topsail Island. Absolutely, the best fresh seafood and great selection, all locally caught. Favorites are the shrimp 3 sizes) of course, scallops and mahi mahi. They also have fresh produce, and seasonings and other items you need to prepare your seafood at home. Great people.

I know I should be telling you about how great and how fresh the seafood is at Thomas Seafood. And it is fresh and delicious - we've been coming here for years!! But now in addition to great flounder, shrimp and crab, they have the biggest, juiciest boiled peanuts I've ever had. They were so good we went back the... More

Long standing local family business. My grandparents shopped with them in the 1950's. They have the best tomatoes and corn in the summer ! All local. Always stop there before any others.
