Time for a history review
I used to eat here in the 60's when I was a kid. It was better then. The food was mediocre to not very good. I sort of get the feeling they are living on the long history of the place. I think the hushpuppies...More ... read more

Great Spot, Great Food!
Stopped in for supper. Excellent food, excellent service! So many historical photos of past guests on the walls. Would definitely recommend this place.

I always enjoy the shrimp cocktail, fried flounder, and squash casserole. Outdoor dining on the water is pleasant. Love this place.

not as good as I remembered
I hadn't been to the Sanitary in years, but had fond memories of the place. Went back recently and found myself disappointed. The view of the sound is still great and we enjoyed that very much. Maybe it was partially my own fault; I ordered...More ... read more

Kind of overrated for the reputation and price you end up paying. The menu has a few areas that could use revising. One seafood pasta dish is worded to where it sounds like you get more than what you actually end up getting. The kids meal selections were annoying as the actual SEAFOOD selections were more expensive(as expected) an ... read more

Seafood on the dock - what could be better?

I remember going to Sanitary when I was growing up. Now it's my husband's and I go to place!! Love the food and the price is ok for the amount of food you get! We absolutely love sitting outside by the water!!

I love this place. Undoubtedly, my review is certainly biased by the fact that some of my fondest childhood memories commingle trips to the beach with coming here. I'd have a hard time separating it all out - the impressiveness of Ft. Macon and the ocean to a little boy, the fried bluefish, hush puppies with butter and sweet tea here ... read more

My experiences at this restaurant have been really good over the past 2 years. Portions are generous and the food is good. I typically order fried seafood or cold boiled shrimp.

We were disappointed. I had heard about this place for many years and wanted to try it sometime. We finally were in town and had the time to visit. We found the food mediocre at best. There are better restaurants even right next door.

The title of the review says it all... Average. Waitstaff was pleasant. The food very average. Even the lemon pie wasn't tasty. Wish we had chosen a different place for dinner.

This is my favorite of all favorite traditional Southern fried seafood restaurants.

Food was just ok...server was M.i.a for most of the meal / had to ask another server for meal items..asked the server for water she was gone for 10+ mins came back with no water/ had to ask again. Now i know why 15% gratuity is automatically added. Won't be back.

Best seafood I've ever eaten!
This place is a legend, known far & wide for its amazing seafood. They literally dock the fishing boats outside and you can't get fish any fresher. Great service, good prices. Worth a detour just to come to Morehead City!
