I saw all the clues but, because of all the positive comments regarding Blackburn Bros., I ignored the troubling signs of a bad experience. There were several fish on ice in the store with cloudy eyes (a sign of old product). We were given fish already filleted from a plastic tub of ice on the floor (couldn't tell when it was prepared) but presumed it was recently cleaned. The storefront smelled of aged fish (thought it might have been old fish trimmings in the trash). But, after taking home three varieties of fish and some shrimp to sample their products, I knew I should have trusted my instincts and walked out of there. My fish was old and smelly... I grilled some and fried some but had to flush most of it. The shrimp were ok but I've had fresher. Perhaps Blackburn Brothers was having a bad day... but I don't want to take a chances again... I'll look for another local seafood market who doesn't pass off old, nasty, smelly bait fish as edible, let alone fresh seafood.

Absolutely amazing seafood. My husband and I drove down from New England to vacation in Carolina Beach and I wanted some good fish to cook for dinner. I came across Blackburn Brothers on google and I am so glad I did! Prices were fantastic and the grouper, red snapper and shrimp I ended up purchasing were so amazingly fresh! I can get fresh fish back home, but it has never tasted this good!

O my gosh! This is the best place on the island for fresh seafood. The boats unload right on the dock here so it really doesnt get any fresher. They always have what's in season. The prices are fair (but usually cheaper during the week rather than on the weekend when most of the tourist are here), You just can't go wrong here!

We've been buying fresh fish, shrimp & crabs from Blackburn's for years. It's hidden off the main road, but the best choice for fresh seafood on the beach!
