With apologies for the delay in posting as much, I had the pleasure of dining at Calabash, North Carolina’s famed…
…last month while in nearby Myrtle Beach and what a pleasure it was. Excellent fried fish and shrimp, hushpuppies to die for and even bottled cocktail sauce to bring home.
Thanks for the many threads on this site steering me towards this. I’d highly recommend! [:)]
I remember Calabash as having the greatest seafood in the world. When I was a kid, my family always took a house in Cherry Grove and eating in Calabash was a must do. I haven’t been there in ages, but do remember it fondly.
Alright, now that’s just mean.
I’ll live to dance on your grave, I-95…
Sweet potato Jesus! seafarer john? You’re still alive?!! [;)]
Will do and thanks!
Honestly, ocdreamr!! [:0][:0] You nearly set-off this site’s warning alarm!
Next time, why don’t you just say c-l-o-t-h-i-e… [8)][8)]
OMyGod, voices from the past, renewing an old flirtation from G&M way back in ’04. What a wonderful thing this Roadfood is…
I don’t want to get you on the wrong side of relatives & I remember your kids as delightful. (It seems to me you were the one going under the table![:0])
If your in the area for a longer time then let me know, I’m up in Wilmington & know a few good places here too![:D]
ocdreamr, if you would be willing to take the place of either my relatives whom I am meeting there or my children whom I’ll be taking there, you’re on. [:D]
Let me know when you’ll be in the area. I’d love to meet for lunch. We could recall crabfest memories! I still recommend the Seafood Hut, it’s not fancy but it’s good food.
The Seafood Hut across the street from Ella’s – my lone dining experience in Calabash – was also very good, and an outstanding value as well.
(edit in reference to ocdreamr’s remarks below)
Little to no ambience, yes – just good eats
Thanks, Tara. Actually, I did look at your thread previously. What’s the big difference between Dockside and Ella’s[?]
I ate at Ellas several months ago… I think my review is somewhere here….
Liked it, but think I would enjoy Dockside better.
Maybe I will try to get up there next week…(after the holiday weekend)..
Its only 35 miles away…[;)]
Are Dockside and Ella’s still the recommended places to dine while in Calabash? Will be there next month and wanted to target my choices. Thanks!
If your in Calabash you should visit Indigo Farms . A family run farm for 7 generations. They have all sorts of goodies, Jams , jellies , canned goods , baked goods , fresh produce. You can find the hard to find stuff there, like succotash and mayhaw jelly. You won’t be sorry.[;)]
