Top Rated North Carolina Seafood Restaurant

Served hot and fresh in Raleigh since 1991.

Welcome to NC Seafood Restaurant! We are a North Carolina seafood restaurant that specializes in Calabash style seafood. And for seafood lovers, there really is nothing quite like calabash style seafood. This popular cooking style originates from the coastal regions of North and South Carolina, where seafood is plentiful.

Calabash style seafood is typically fried, giving it a crispy outer coating and a succulent inner flesh. The key to this cooking method is to use a light batter, which helps to seal in the natural flavors of the seafood. So much flavor you can almost taste it now. This method of cooking is also relatively quick and easy, which is why we take pride is serving you freshly made seafood platters every single time!

Every platter comes with with hushpuppy’s, cole slaw, homefries, and then your choice of fried:

  • Shrimp
  • Flounder
  • Scallops
  • Catfish
  • Oysters
  • Trout
  • Clam Strips
  • Whitefish

Our seafood really is cooked fresh and always delicious, and our Calabash style seafood has been voted some of the best around. NC Seafood is located at the North Carolina Farmers Market in Raleigh and has been specializing in serving the highest quality fried North Carolina Calabash style seafood in a casual setting for over 30 years.

Please note, when we first started out we served seafood primarily from North Carolina and surrounding areas. But with current shortages it has now become very challenging with many of our items extremely hard to get in today’s conditions as well as the stricter regulations on NC fisherman. We try our hardest to use NC products when they’re available, domestic products as our next option, and we only use imported products when absolutely necessary.

Thanks for choosing us as your go-to seafood spot in North Carolina.

Check out our menu and come see why the folks from the coast tell us we are as good, if not better than their coastal local restaurants.
