Eating and exploring our way through the world

Eb & Flo’s Steam Bar

Happy New Year!! As many of you know, the Husband and I are currently vacationing on Bald Head Island, NC with our friends Kath and Matt.  We took off slightly early on Wednesday and mad the approximate 4 hour drive from Charlotte to arrive just in time for the 7pm ferry to get to the island and to have a late dinner.  So far, it’s been a wonderful vacation and New Year celebration!  I’ve had a chance to play with the new camera and the Husband will hopefully be getting a post up about how beautiful this place is!

Kath, Matt, the Husband and I decided to cook some meals at the Inn and enjoy some meals out during this trip, trying to make a healthy (relatively speaking!) balance while we’re here.  Wednesday night we made dinner at the Inn while Thursday we went out to lunch at Eb & Flo’s Steam Bar.  We made dinner at the Inn last night and plan to have lunch in while we go out to the Club for dinner tonight 🙂

I’d seen Eb & Flo’s Steam Bar on Kath’s blog before (her family vacations here a handful of times per year) and the Husband and I were looking forward to some fresh seafood!

We’re staying at the Marsh Harbor Inn so Eb & Flo’s is a quick, short walk away.



The weather when we first arrived had been cold and cloudy so when we headed to lunch, we were quite excited for the sun to start to appear! The restaurant had a beautiful view over the harbor.


We headed inside and looked around deciding where to sit (seat yourself place).





The bar area was full so we took a seat in the front room.  I loved the motif of the restaurant!


Going into the restaurant we had a general idea of what we were going to have.  We looked through the menu anyway just to be sure.





To start, we decided to get a pitcher of 1554 and split it four ways (more like 3 – Kath and I went with a half glass each to start!).  It was super tasty!



First on the list of must haves was the Fried Okra appetizer.  Yum-o!


On Kath and Matt’s recommendation, we decided to get a Steamer Pot to get a good sample of fresh, steamed seafood!  The four of us decided to split the Large pot.  The kitchen was awesome and divided it into two pots for us so it was easier for the couples to share!  The pot came with shrimp, crab legs, oysters, clams, crawfish, potatoes, kielbasa, and corn on the cob.


In addition to splitting the pots, Kath and I each got a side salad while the Husband got the Lobster Bisque.  I had a bite and it was good!



For dessert 😉 the Husband went with a Carolina Brewing IPA.


All in all, it was great lunch! Good food with good friends on a good vacation 🙂 Looking forward to trying out a fancier meal tonight!  Hope everyone is having a great start to 2010!
