This place is spotless,you could eat off the counters. Vicki runs a tight ship and is most creative in what she sells. Never had a bad piece of fish or shellfish from this place-only game in town as far as I'm concerned..

Ms Vicki and staff are the best on the island. Her food is fresh, her attention to detail on target, and her customer service unmatched on Hatteras. Best if you call ahead and get a sense of what is fresh for the day. She went...More

Hardshells were conspicuously absent from the Outer Banks while I was there this year. I usually buy a bunch for a boil. On the bright side, jumbo shrimp were in abundance, which is unusual for the area.
