Dining

Beach Towns Bursting With Flavor.

Half the fun of vacation is discovering new dining spots to taste culinary creations and local flavors of the area.

Whether it's a savory blend of seafood, family favorites, home-style dishes or tastes from around the globe, good food is one of the things we do best in the Brunswick Islands. Each town has dining offerings that are as unique and individual as the islands themselves. Come grab a bite!

Bountiful Seafood & Family Favorites

No trip to NC's Brunswick Islands is complete without stopping in Calabash for a delicious treat from the Seafood Capital of the World. Here, you can sink your teeth into the lightly breaded, fried seafood that has made a name for itself well beyond its namesake town. Visit any of the family-owned restaurants – even some of the Calabash originals – that serve up this distinctive style of seafood and so much more.

Waterfront Dining & Flavorful Festivals

Delicious food isn't all we have to offer. Many local eateries are serving up local fare with scenic views that are second to none. Waterfront restaurants pepper our islands and towns, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, Cape Fear River, Intracoastal Waterway and more, making for memorable meals that won't just treat your taste buds but will send your whole experience over the top.

If you're looking for another kind of experience, annual outdoor events like the North Carolina Oyster Festival, 4th of July Festival, Days at the Dock Festival and Festival by the Sea bring with them new and exciting tastes. Schedule your vacation around one, and you're sure to find excitement worth savoring.
