Im planning on staying in Calabash for the weekend and trying to pick out a restaurant and reviewing trip advisors comments.

The Seafood Hut - looks promising the lightly breaded is winning me over.

The Dockside Seafood House - The mention of a view seems cool but Im more interested in good tasting seafood but its mention quality of food doesnt seem to match the good customer service that is mention.

Becks Calabash - ok reviews of food looks like it a bad buy for their good prices

Captain Johns -same as Becks quality isnt there

Haley's not enough reviews to entice us to try

So base on reviews in your opinion is The Seafood Hut the better option.
Im craving steam oysters

Our favourite place in Calabash is The Grapevine but I don't think they have steamed oysters.

To satisfy that craving, a 15 minute trip to N Myrtle might do the trick. Duffys has steamed oysters.

The Boundary House in Calabash will also save your waistline from that fried Calabash fare

True oyster taste? Then you better get some mud between your toes and pop'em open in the marsh. A flat head screw driver at the hinge works best for me to open.
The good thing about steamed is that it kills the little crab that gets inside some of the oysters. It's hard to eat those crabs when they can still run around.
