Default Basic flounder shrimp and oyster etc platter near Atlantic Beach?

Went to Southern Salt last time and dug it. May go again tonight but wanted to get some other ideas.

Itís me and the kids, and I havenít been able to get them to appreciate much besides burgers and chicken tenders, so nothing fancy. Gotta be unpretentious and have great ice tea and hush puppies.

You pretty much nailed it on your first try! I've heard Jeff is doing good things at the Sanitary but don't know if they're open yet. Sammy owns both Southern Salt and The Spot and usually works both places every day and uses fresh (when in season) caught local seafood.

I don't recommend Sanitary but beside it is the Ruddy Duck and they have great seafood.

Amos Mosquito's on Fort Macon Road has always been excellent. I honestly have never had a bad meal there.

Heard Ruddy Duck has dropped dinner and gone to breakfast and lunch only. Person who told me saw it on RD's facebook page.

It's always been next to impossible for me to find places that sell locally caught seafood on either of the Carolina coasts.

Never been to southern salt or spot grill so will have to check those out.

Beware, local caught seafood means a gill net may have been used in the murder of your potential meal. I rarely eat out. Having said that try Blackbeardís in Beaufort...... sounds up OP alley for what you are looking. Enjoy!

Itís true. We were going there but ended up at Southern Salt again and Iím stuffed. Shrimp was a little overcooked but everything else was good.

Headed to the Spot tomorrow then Els for a cheeseburger battle, then maybe Big Oak and TBD (the food truck guy?) for a shrimpburger battle. Iím gonna gain 10 lbs on this trip.

Sammy buys from the real local boats and peeler sheds (that's a hint to try the soft shells!) You won't be disappointed, but if you're wondering, just ask the tall blonde/grey haired guy behind the counter, he'll tell you where they came from.

Yup, those evil gillnets caught all those shrimp, jumping mullet, soft crabs mahi, tune, wahoo and oysters. They really are killing machines!

Ok... are you going to keep us in suspense or explain it? The OP asked a fairly simple question of where to find a good seafood meal for him and his kids. Thought that was the point and was answered? Are you trying to make this political?
