It took me a while to figure it out. This hometown eatery wasn't your typical Eastern North Carolina fish house with light and fluffy deep fried crusts on hushpuppies, flounder, and shrimp. It more closely resembled what your Mom or Dad might put together after a visit to the local seafood market--fried seafood with a somewhat heavy dose of cooking... More

Well known in this area. I haven't been in 30 years so I wasn't sure what to expect. I had broiled seafood and it was pretty much tasteless. I tried my son's fried shrimp and the flavor was good but too much breaking for me. The deviled crab was good. The service was five star, the food not so much.... More

Good option for seafood in the area. They offer grilled and broiled options in addition to the traditional fried. Good variety of seafood to choose from. Staff is friendly and food is prepared quickly. Food is tasty and plentiful and we had leftovers. Prices are reasonable.

It's a quote that's posted in the restaurant that speaks volumes on the quality of the food not the pricing as it's quite reasonable. Continues to be the best seafood..you will not be disappointed

Best hush puppies I ever ate. You can choose steamed or broiled seafood if you can't eat fried. Come early if you don't want to wait for a table.

I enjoy coming to Dixie Queen. The food is always fresh and hot. They do serve on styrofoam, but if it helps keep the cost low and portions large, then I don't mind. The servers are great and usually friendly. Rarely do I have a problem here.

This restaurant has been in business for over 40 years. The seafood is breaded lightly, not battered so the taste of the fish and seafood is not overpowered by batter. The seafood and fish is fresh, the food prepared onsite. The hushpuppies are delicious, delivered to your table hot so you can dip them in butter. The slaw is the... More

We now live in Tennessee and we always eat here when we go back home for a visit. The best ever, down to earth seafood. Not the fancy type seafood here in Nashville. Melt in your mouth shrimp.

excellent seafood. I live in CT and I think the north has by far the best seafood but Dixie Queen is a strong contender.
