Sanitary Fish Market and Restaurant Oct 04, 2009
While attending the NC Seafood Festival we decided to duck into the Sanitary Fish Market, lured in by the unusual name. If I recall the history presented on their menu correctly, the joint was started up by a couple of local fisherman and the entrepreneurs secured the prime location on the waterfront in Morehead City for a bargain rate by promising not to serve alcohol and keeping the place spotless! It is a spacious restaurant; chock full of pictures and sea memorabilia.
Things started off on a good note when our waitress dropped off a basket of hushpuppies. These were easily the best hushpuppies we’ve had in quite some time! The menu, however, only offered basic selections, the one exception being their clam chowder, which is more like chicken and rice soup with clams – they don’t use tomato or butter for the broth. I found it different and quite tasty. Alas, my entrée, shrimp creole, was bland and very teensy for the price. This verdict rang true for my wife and daughter in their selections as well. Though disappointed by the food, we had no complaints about the service or the calming views we got to enjoy of the Crystal Coast while we dined.
