We've been going to this restaurant for a few decades now. What used to be spectacular is now 'ok'. But we're going to keep eating there as it seems like we're 'going home' when we dine there. Nothing fancy or trendy about this place, but you'll always be served their famous and delicious hushpuppies to munch on while awaiting your food order. The seafood is fresh and the water view is relaxing. Don't forget to buy the t-shirt, they're quality made and colorful.

We ate with a party of six. I had the fish trio with fried fish, shrimp and scallops. The fish was sea trout and it was excellent. My wife had the Fried Shrimp which were lightly battered and very tasty. We have been here at least twice and both times the food was excellent. Great servers and plenty of seating...

We went there for seafood and had a great meal. There are some seats near the water where you get a good view.

My wife and I started eating at this restaurant in the late 1960s when we were in college at East Carolina. It was a tradition to eat here on the way back to ECU after a day at the beach at nearby Atlantic Beach. We recently ate here again following the ECU/Houston game that my college room mate and his significant other attended with us. The service and attention from the staff is as good as ever and the food was also. All the platters we had were ample and very tasty, from the broiled scallops and fish to the fried shrimp and flounder. We always drool over the desserts in the counter as you go in, but by the time we finish the meal we don't have any room left to sample them. I'd say the only thing that has changed at this restaurant since 1969 are the prices, which isn't bad. It's the hospitality of the staff and the charm of the decor that keeps us coming back.

I believe the most compelling thing about the Sanitary is the long tradition many, many families have of "going to the Sanitary" There are few places you could go in another Carolina where no one would know about the Sanitary. It is connected with the annual family trips to the beach. Many families coming at the end of farming season taking a well deserved break, talking for weeks about their upcoming trips and always including the Sanitary as a "must do". The entire experience is the same year after year and that is fine with most of us. The Sanitary sits practically in the water providing numerous opportunities to view the water and enjoy the always changing panorama of coastal life. Wooden floors, wooden tables, slatted, wooden chairs...the entire experience is simple, coastal and in the very bones of many a family.

My first visit, certainly won't be the last. The best broiled trout that I've ever had, service was good and the best Hush Puppies EVER !
