This place was okay - small and very cramped - but I doubt we'd go back. The hostess was rude - not a "people person" by any stretch - and the wait was MUCH longer (1:15) than they told us (30min). The place is TINY...More

While on vacation in Rodanthe June 25, 2008, we drove back to Kill Devil Hills on the advice of a friend to eat at Carolina Seafood. We ended up being seated in a far corner (5 adults) where we could hardly move. The buffet was...More

We went fairly late, so were seated within 10 minutes. The first shock came when the server told us the buffet is $29.95. Since it was late and we were really tired, we decided to "bite the bullet" and go ahead and eat there. The...More

OK, I'm a seafood fan from coast to coast, and if you don't really want seafood, you DO NOT WANT TO GO HERE. This is a buffet, and it was basically packed by 4:30PM. Everything on the buffet our group of four got was basically...More

I liked the restaurant- it looks like a beach shack but the buffet was great! I thought the prices were reasonable for what you got. Definitely would recommend

A person who we met on the beach recommended Carolina Seafood, so we went. Not sure what they found appealing, but we found it awful. We were stuffed into a corner below a loud speaker with flies buzzing around our heads. There were bugs on...More

Visited Carolina Seafood on July 27. Very expensive (26$) buffet. Not many items on menu. Very disapointed. I can get a cheaper / better meal at a French restaurant in Montréal. Dessert were sitting on top the buffet warming light. Needless to say that most...More

Mediocre buffet with crab legs. If you're not eating the crab legs it's not worth the price. Steamed crab and scallops are good. However, our hostess was very crabby during our visit and seemed affronted by our bringing along our toddler and newborn. We were...More

Searching for an appropriate seafood buffet with a picky family is tough. Especially when you usually go to Ocean City, MD on vacation, where the streets are paved with buffets. Within 5-10 miles either side of Kitty Hawk, there seems to only be 4 or...More

Bring your unbrella...you're going to need it. The open ventilation pipes drip constantly all over the dining area. They are nice enough to give you some extras though, like RAT. Look before you eat. And, the food is cold. The nicest thing about this place,...More
