We enjoy this place for true "Calabash Style" seafood (sometimes derisively called "shovel seafood"), but don't expect to see sautéed, broiled, or baked on the menu, or anything exotic--just fried seafood at a good price. Small dining area with outdoor waiting benches caters to locals...More

The little platter of shrimp for the lunch special was fairly good, as was the slaw. The hushpuppies were ho-hum. I looked longingly across the street at Ella's, wishing I was there instead. The crinkle cut fries are what you would get in the frozen...More

If you're looking for simple and delicious, calabash style seafood, be sure and check out the seafood hut. Quick and convenient with quality food and service. No frills - no alcohol just great calabash seafood. Be sure to visit next time you're in the area.
