It's small, it's busy, but its got great seafood. You can find anything you would want, the wait staff is wonderful and can guide you to picking your meal, based on your wants.

Just a small place that we hit for lunch while in town. The lunch special of shrimp and flounder was just $8.00 and was very tasty. The service was very prompt and friendly.

Tried the Seafood Hut after hearing it was written up as a great find in "Southern Living" magazine. Specializing in Calabash style seafood, the "hut" is amazing. Seats around 40-45 so it gets full fairly easily. The fried shrimp is tender, and moist. A must if you are in the area!!

During our occasional visits to the Sunset Beach/Calabash area, we usually work in a trip to Calabash Seafood Hut either for lunch or dinner. Lunch specials are a great deal with small platters including drink for $8. My favorite is fried flounder, my husband's is fried shrimp. Love the casual atmosphere and friendly service! The only thing I think that... More

This place comes in at #6 and I can't for the life of me figure out why. The place was crowded. The price was reasonable. It didn't seem very clean and needs to be revamped. Took awhile to get service and food. The special which I got was flounder and shrimp was disappointing. The shrimp were small and I am... More

This is a great place to get fried shrimp. Cannot beat the prices for this area and the service is always great. You may have a wait during peak times of the day.

This is one of those places that should be on the food network if it hasn't been already. You'd never know it was there if it wasn't for the line out the door. Very small - 8 or so tables. Best Calabash style seafood I've had in my life. Hands down. Have eaten here every visit for 10 years.

My friends wanted Seafood Hut so I agreed. I got the small size shrimp. Nothing to write home about. Small shrimps. Hush puppies very hard. French fries cold. Cold slaw same ole same ole. Place gone downhill. Though bug in popularity this local will tell you theres much better elsewhere.
