Loca eateries offer
variety of seafood
By CINDY DUNLEVY
Chapel Hill may not be Calabash or Maine
but the seafood restaurant selection in the area
will likely satisfy any seafood lover's craving.
There are three seafood restaurants near cam
pus, each catering to different tastes.
LandLubber's, located on Highway 54,
specializes in Calabash-style seafood. Servings
are generous, and Sunday through Thursday
LandLubber's offers "all you can eat" specials.
The cost at LandLubber's varies. "All you can
eat" specials cost about $7.95 for shrimp or
filet of flounder but other dinners run from
$3.95 to $6.95. Mixed drinks, beer and wine are
LandLubber's has a simple decor that is
typical of seafood restaurants, and if you fancy
dim lights, this is not the place. But if all you're
after is good seafood, LandLubber's has plenty
to offer. Just be sure not to eat too many hush
puppies, which are usually first to come.
For a different look try the Red Baron, a
cozy, out-of-the-way restaurant on Jones Ferry
This is a seafood restaurant with an unusual
menu. The menu features listings such as hot
brie with almonds, spinach balls, shrimp and
broccoli and a crabmeat sandwich.
There are also old traditionals, like lobster
tail and filet mignon.
The prices are a bit expensive and not many
students frequent the Red Baron where locals
watch T.V. and enjoy the comfortable, lived-in

Leary serves mixed drinks, wine and 53 types of
The bar is open from 4 p.m. until 1 a.m. and
dinner is served between 5 p.m. and 1 1 p.m.
If the Red Baron is not the catch-of-the-day
maybe The Red Lobster, on U.S. 15-501, will
be the right size.
The Red Lobster offers many combinations
of steak and seafood, including crab and
lobster. There are nine different seafood plat
ters and 19 shrimp dishes. The Red Lobster's
menu gives the widest choice of the three
The Red Lobster is open daily from 11:30
a.m. until 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday
and from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and
Saturday. A "What's New for Lunch" special
