Editor’s Note: Several of these restaurants may be difficult to reach, or even temporarily closed due to the impact of Hurricane Florence on North Carolina. If you’re traveling long distances, please check route availability, and call head to confirm the restaurant from this list is open.

With summer winding down, one thing is for sure, if you haven’t had some fresh, delicious NC seafood yet – what are you waiting for? While you can always dine dockside or reel your dinner right in, there’s plenty of amazing places throughout the state to get that seaside experience. Like these ten!

Well, now I officially have a crazy hankering for seafood (and maybe a beach trip to go along with that). From casual, pop in pop out dining, to elegant sit down dinners, it’s safe to say North Carolina has not just seafood, but this whole ‘food scene’ mastered!

Did any of your favorites make the list? Any places you’d like to add?

If you’re looking to get not just seafood, but seafood RIGHT beside the beach – check out these amazing beachside restaurants in North Carolina.
