Had a nice meal with family here while vacationing. Reminds me of" fish camp" style restaurants. Plain, simple and fresh. Service was great, nice clean place, the bussers and servers were constantly cleaning and refilling beverages.

A well established long time Morehead City restaurant with a ton of connections to Morehead City history. Visitors should definitely put the Sanitary on you schedule! Great local seafood and dedicated owners.

The Sanitary has been around forever. I have enjoyed many a meal there. It is a good place to take a family with kids for lunch or diner. I typically get the fried seafood platter, which has always been good.
