    Eagle Island Seafood along 421 north has great seafood and fresh produce.

    There’s no shortage of great seafood dealers in the area, but I do have a favorite. Just past the Ashley High/Veterans Park area keep your eyes open for a blue building on the southbound side. Here lies the Seaview Crab Company. Always a great selection, always fresh and the best part, they come to you! Well, not literally, but they do send out a weekly email with what’s in season, what they’re catching in abundance and extra details about special scores like a recent massive swordfish they cut into steaks or sushi quality mahi.

    Visit their site to get on the list or swing by their facebook page for more info.

    Motts Seafood on the way to Wrightsville Beach is hands down the best place. They always have the best, freshest selection and the people that work there a always very nice, friendly and helpful.

    I agree – you can’t beat Mott’s Channel on Wrightsville Beach. Good selection that’s always fresh, and the employees are helpful and friendly.
