Calabash NC Area Information

Calabash, NC Area

Calabash, NC

Once a small, cultivated fishing village, Calabash is located in Brunswick County on the North Carolina coast. Calabash, NC falls between Wilmington, NC and Myrtle Beach, SC, and is known for its exclusive "Calabash-style" seafood.

The birth of "Calabash-style" seafood was originated in the 1930's when local fishermen would set out before dawn from and return to the docks with the day’s freshest catch for families and local villagers. It was under the lingering oak trees by the docks where the fresh seafood was lightly battered and fried in big tubs of grease, then served to the fisherman and their families. These quickly became known as "fishing camps" among the locals. The conception of "fish camps" is long gone, but pioneering restaurants like Ella's, Beck's, and Coleman's still operate under the original descendants and abide in serving daily fresh seafood fried to perfection for locals and visitors from all over the world!
