The prices are not cheap here but the service is excellent and the servings are plentiful. I got the boiled shrimp and it was a large plateful with a nice sized baked potato. The green beans are delicious and well seasoned. My husband really likes...More

Calabash Seafood has been around for a long time, but the prices have seemed to increase just about every time we go there. Has gotten awfully expensive for fried shrimp, but it is really good. Service has always been excellent. Will continue to be a...More
