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 served. 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 Road. 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 atmosphere. In the lounge, owner and bartender Mike Leary serves mixed drinks, wine and 53 types of beer. 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 restaurants. 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.
