It feels like summertime at Sanitary Fish Market and Restaurant! To celebrate, we’re going to give you a tour of some of our favorite dishes! Our historic waterfront restaurant Morehead NC is famous for its delicious seafood dishes and platters. Is your mouth watering yet? Let us share with you some of our favorites!

From the Grill

We offer a selection of USDA Prime Grade 8 oz. sirloins and 10 oz. filets. Here’s the kicker: You can build your own surf and turf! Our always fresh seafood add ons allow you to create your own plate with fresh NC seafood and prime grade steaks or chicken. Pick your choice of fried shrimp, fried bay scallops, fried fantail shrimp, fried sea scallops, or our famous fried oysters! Our favorite? Our 10 oz. filet with the fried oysters. Yum!

Linguine with Lobster Sauce

Fancy a pasta instead? This dish is perfect for a summer evening on the patio of the number one waterfront restaurant Morehead NC! This dish features al dente linguine swimming in our creamy lobster sauce. Top with your choice of our market fish (our choice, ask your server for our featured fish), grilled shrimp, or grilled scallops. The lobster sauce pasta pairs perfectly with a light Riesling or Pinot Grigio!

Shrimp and Grits

Last but certainly not least, our shrimp and grits! This fan-favorite dish is one of our favorite summer go-to’s! Our homemade cheese grits are topped with your choice of fried or grilled shrimp, along with mushroom ragout, freshly chopped green onions, bacon, and mixed cheese. We can’t get enough of our shrimp and grits!
