Wonderful place, used to come here as a child, many, many years ago. Was in the area for business and make a special trip just to eat here. Every bit as good as I remember, how often is that not the case? Please give these folks your business. Wonderfully light crispy fried seafood, I got the small platter, what a misnomer! Contained a small mountain of flounder, oysters and some of the best shrimp I've had in a long time. Linda took very good care of me, better than I deserved, made sure I had everything I needed and plenty of sweet tea! Please support your small businesses as we get used to this new normal. Also be good to your servers, they were hit especially hard the last few years. Trying to make a difference, One Day at a Time, Won't You Join Me?

Was riding through calabash and came across this gem. Was with 4 friends and we stopped in Wednesday evening, we all had the large seafood platter and it was the best I have ever had and the service by Misty was outstanding. I also noticed the servers were helping each out and that was great to see. We were going out again Saturday night and everyone wanted to go back again so we did. We were delighted to get Misty as our server again and We all had to have the seafood platter again, and it was great as the time before. We will become weekly customers,hard to find the food and service. That IS THIS OUTSTANDING.

It would be possible to spend weeks, months, years eating one’s way through Myrtle beach and north along the Grand Strand to find which of the several dozen (or is it several hundred?) restaurants purporting to serve Calabash-style seafood are the best. But it likely would not be fun. Too many are tourist traps where enforced seaside ambience trumps good-tasting food.So forget an endless, bilious, ridiculously expensive pilgrimage. Eat at the Calabash Seafood Hut in the village of Calabash, which has declared itself The Seafood Capital of the World. It’s a small place, family owned, with a lot of take-out business and, usually, a wait for one of the precious tables inside.The menu is basic, with only a handful of items for “land lovers.” But it lists all the seafood that made this town famous, including buff little shrimp, sweet scallops, creamy flounder, and substantial oysters. What makes them Calabash as opposed to ordinary fried seafood? In some ways, it’s hard to define… but you know it when you taste it.First,  the fish is fresh. Not icy,  not old, but seriously ocean-fresh; second — and this is the tricky part — its coat is especially thin, lightly crunchy, gently seasoned. There is a buttery luxe to the crisp crust that shatters and melds so well with the sweet seafood within. Shrimp are the #1 headliner. They’re little, but unlike so many other shrimpy shrimp, they are radiant with sweet shellfish flavor. Scallops are resilient and clean-flavored; oysters are luxurious heavyweights, their gnarly shape meaning maximum amounts of breading; flounder is pure white and as rich as cream. Hushpuppies and French fries are OK, serving their purpose as palate-refreshers before digging into more seafood.Calabash seafood first was served to the public back in the 1940s, when a couple of sisters in town decided to open a restaurant that took advantage of the bounteous catch and the town tradition of community fish fries. The name has spread far beyond the village of Calabash, but locals frown on all those places in Myrtle Beach that claim to serve Calabash seafood when, in fact, it’s just regular fried fish.
