******Restaurant Of The Month*****


Ellas rest.16486-0Calabash, North Carolina is a charming town that was originally a fishing village.

Calabash Town sealCalabash became known as the “Seafood Capital of the World” …Home of Calabash Seafood!  Calabash is a style of preparing fresh seafood. It was named for the village of Calabash since that way of preparing seafood originated in the Little Fishing Village of Calabash!

ellas-of-calabash-ella-2527s-2bfood_54_990x660_201406011557Ella’s, which was one of the places that put Calabash-style seafood -Featuring large portions of fresh fish, shrimp, and shellfish lightly battered and deep-fried – On the Map!

Accompanied by its World-Famous Hushpuppies, Ella’s serves great seafood in a relaxed, family-friendly setting. The prices are still reasonable and it is easy to see shy Ella’s still draws big crowds year-round!

Ella's Hushpuppies02-imageReviews share some of the reasons.  One local expert, Terry Massey says: Locals drive past dozens of seafood restaurants to go to Ella’s in Calabash!  Comments by others include: Hush Puppies were heavenly! Ella’s is Calabash Seafood at its Finest!

ella-s-restaurantElla’s is also part of the story of Jimmy Durante coming thorough Calabash and proclaiming , after eating at Ella’s, that he would make her Famous!  ‘Goodnight, Mrs. Calabash!” was how he ended his show each night.  Others in Calabash claim to be That Mrs. Calabash. You can see Ella’s story of her visit from Jimmy Durante on the wall of Ella’s restaurant that her family still owns! Ella’s is Family Run with Pride in their Special Brand of Calabash Seafood!

Stop by Ella’s for Great Calabash Seafood and Hushpuppies!  They have also extended their menu to include broiled seafood dishes. Ella’s is by the Historic Calabash Waterfront and is a Tasty Value you won’t want to miss in Coastal North Carolina!
