“gotta try our famous hushpuppies!”

On February 10, 1938, two partners, Tony Seamon and Ted Garner, opened a fresh seafood market on the Morehead City waterfront. A small building had been rented from Charles S. Wallace for $5.50 per week with the understanding that no beer or wine would be sold and that the premises be kept clean and neat. The name "Sanitary Fish Market" was chosen by the partners to project their compliance. "Captain Ted" operated the fish market and "Captain Tony" operated a party boat, often cooking and serving some of the day's catch to his parties. They began urging him to cook his seafood ashore. In the Spring of 1938 twelve stools were set up at a counter in the market, a two-burner kerosene stove was installed and the first seafood restaurant on the Morehead City waterfront was in business! Soon afterward, word spread and customers lined up at the front door awaiting their turn to sample the fresh seafood.

I was wholly unimpressed with our family dinner at the Sanitary Market Restaurant. The views are nice, we were seated quickly, and they are able to accommodate larger groups easily, but the food was mostly fried and unseasoned and the service slow. Of the ten people at our table, no one found their meals anything more than average, and that's probably an overstatement.

The worst food I've ever paid for. Seriously, eat anywhere else. The drinks are terrible too- from mixed drinks to the kids milk shakes, just awful.
I will never go back. Don't make my same mistake.
