Calabash Seafood

There's something so mouthwatering, so distinctive, so downright delicious about our fresh-caught seafood– and the manner in which we prepare it– that folks around the country have tried for decades to copy our methods. But what they'll never understand is that there's no substitute for the original. Calabash, North Carolina, a tiny beach town in the Brunswick Islands, is renowned for its homegrown seafood style– fresh caught off our shores every day, then very lightly breaded and piled on the plate. No teeny tiny portions here!

You know you have a great taste treat when families plan their vacations around our food as much as our surroundings! For generations, visitors have ventured to Calabash as much for our shrimp, scallops and daily seafood specials as much as they've come for the sand, surf and sunshine!

More than a dozen Calabash-style seafood restaurants dot our landscape– so rest assured, when you come to Calabash, if you don't get your fill of our seafood, it won't be for lack of delectable choices! You'll go home yearning for one more taste. As Jimmy Durante is quoted as saying, "Goodnight Miss Calabash, wherever you are."
