You are located between two good barbecue restaurants, Corolla Village Barbecue to the north (https://www.facebook.com/CorollaVillageBBQ) and High Cotton to the south (http://www.highcottonbbq.com/).

BBQ is a personal thing so don't trust reviews on BBQ or pizza, people tend to get real personal with both of those. What you like others will hate and visa verse. Same with all u can eat places. I hate them and avoid them like the doctor, but I go past them and see lines out the door. I won't even try to go in one, but Jimmy's all you can stand buffet and Capt Georges both are what you are looking for. Jimmy's is in Kitty Hawk at mile post 4 and Capt Georges is around mile post 8. Georges is much better from what I hear.

Try the BBQ place up in Duck, Duck Deli I assume you mean. It's not bad but I do prefer High Cotton which is across from the Hilton Inn on the beach road.

not looking for an all you can eat buffet style place. looking for a restaurant (continental/seafood) that offers an all you can eat crabs special.

" looking for a restaurant (continental/seafood) that offers an all you can eat crabs special."

That would be an all you can eat buffet! The other places sell them by the pound, but you can keep ordering them by the pound if you want to.

a buffet or an all you can eat place implies that everything is all you can eat, salad, crackers, butter, crabs, meats, etc. like at casinos in vegas or AC.

the crab all you can eat special is a special at a restaurant, ideally a seafood or continental. I don't think I would like to eat one, let alone a lot, of crabs at a general buffet all you can eat bonanza type place. but perhaps that is my bias showing against buffet.

that is the distinction I am trying to draw. I guess I wasn't clear. thanks.

There is great place in Kitty Hawk called I Got Your Crabs. Not all you can eat, but they do clean the apron for you. Very casual and low key. All crabs are caught locally. Eat in or take out. They have a website. Went to Duck Deli a couple of weeks ago and besides almost doubling their prices it was inedible.

You do realize that the crab you get here and the crab you get in Idaho or Texas or Florida all comes in frozen from Alaska, right? So what is the difference if an all u can eat buffet steams it up or if a fancy restaurant does it for you? Same crab, in steam.

Tim I think the OP means blue crabs. We used to go to one in Maryland that was like that.

try MD, old bay.

Got crabs twice in Duck and very disappointed, even the boys who can consume a bushel between 6 of them, didn't even eat them. Probably nothing wrong with the crabs, they just didn't know how to cook them even at the fish store in Duck.

Best all you at crab has been on the bay in Maryland. Picnic tables with brown paper and the crabs are thrown on the table for all to devour! So fun but I have not seen anything like that in Duck
