I've had some good meals here. This was just ok. I had fried flounder and usually it's a couple of medium filets, good breading, and flakey in the middle. This time it was a huge filet, wet and rubbery in the center, and maybe tad fishy. Was it bad enough to send back? No, I actually ate about half of it, and I didn't want to wait fo ... read more

My wife and I had dinner here today. We both had the broiled seafood platter. I also had the sea turtle soup. We enjoyed the water view. The service and atmosphere was great. I cannot believe the poor ratings.

A Morehead City landmark! No visit is complete without a meal here!
The name might strike you as a little odd -- who would want to eat at an unsanitary restaurant? The name notwithstanding, the Sanitary Fish Market & Restaurant is a fixture of the Morehead City waterfront. You simply haven't been to Morehead City if you...More ... read more

Average fried Carolina seafood
This place is a local icon that's been around forever. You'll get descent food and service. The view is nice on the water and you can enjoy boats cruising by most times of the year. Expect dockage to be limited in the high seasons if...More ... read more

Highly disappointed with our experience andin their seafood. Very surprised... The meal was incredibly boring and lacked any pizazz whatsoever... Needs to be a little more breading for a crisper coating... sides were like out of a can... fish was plain with no flavor.

Good atmosphere and tasty food. Right on the water.

Service is always great but food has gone down hill over the years. Overpriced as well.

It is reliable; however, it is not the best in the area.

We came to Morehead city to shop and decided to eat at The Sanitary Restaurant. We have eaten here before, but it had been a while. It was good, ordinary. None of the seafood was spectacular. Clam chowder is not cream-based. The broth is very...More ... read more

We live a few hours away but make it a tradition to come here every few months! Great food for great prices. It's never too busy to where it's uncomfortable and we have always gotten a good table with a fantastic view of the water.

Good food, but heck of a restaruant name
