How to Find the Best Local Spots on Ocean Isle BeachBlue Crab

 
Looking for a local Ocean Isle Beach fish market to purchase your lump crabmeat? Then you should try Sheffield's Seafood & Grocery or Cap't Jack's Seafood Market. Be sure to tell them that the folks at Williamson Realty Vacations sent you. Local crabmeat comes from Blue Crabs, which are plentiful in North Carolina's coastal waters. Crabbing is a tradition, and a way of life for many local fishermen. Enjoying this rich and succulent food resource is something to be appreciated and treasured.
 
If you are short on time, and would like to try some of the finest soups and stews available in the Ocean Isle Beach area, there are several great restaurants to choose from. Here is what one local has to say about the soup scene:
 
"The best places that I have been for soup, are Causeway Gourmet, The Filling Station, Purple Onion, and Duffers. I am so ready for soup season!!! The Filling Station has the absolute BEST soups, and her variety is so different each day. She does not have a set menu of soups like Purple Onion, but they are good and unique!"
