Dock Street Oyster Bar has an award-winning reputation as one of the best oyster bars in the Cape Fear region, and this downtown icon continues to impress seafood fans with its extensive steamer menu and plenty of accompanying good eats.
Located just a block away from the Cape Fear River in the heart of Downtown Wilmington, Dock Street will entice downtown explorers to settle into the cool interior and enjoy a round or two of seafood and drinks. The steamer menu naturally includes both raw and steamed oysters, as well as shrimp, crab legs, clams, and mussels, and hungry patrons will also find a variety of southern-inspired sandwiches and appetizers on the menu as well. Hungry patrons can try out the blackened or grilled fresh catch taco, or the unique and Cajun spiced Parmesan shrimp patty, while nibblers can opt for a seafood appetizer like the Oyster Rockefeller or Oyster Imperial, the crab dip, or the sesame ginger calamari. With piles of fresh seafood, (and lots of napkins, cocktail sauce, and hot melted butter to go around), seafood fans will be in messy coastal heaven.
Casual and filling, with a cool downtown vibe, Dock Street Oyster Bar is the place to go to roll up your sleeves and dig into Carolina seafood at its authentic best.
