Blue Bay seafood has some of the best country cooked seafood. Baby Flounder is a local favorite. I prefer the seafood platter with flounder ,Shrimp, Blue crab, and scallops, Great hushpuppies and side orders. Highly recommended..

The manager came over and stated no. I asked why she said no again. Again I asked why she said because I... More

I stopped here with a friend on the way back home from Charlotte. We were both very happy we did. The fried shrimp was excellent and the flounder was thick and fluffy. The food arrived at our table piping hot. It's a good location and the restaurant was very clean outside and inside. Really pretty waterfall as you walk in... More
