Emerald Isle NC area good eats?

Aqua: great food, poor service (just our waiter--the other server was running her butt off while ours left the food in the service window to wilt). Great deconstructed caesar salad, amazing wasabi-crusted tuna with pineapple curry coulis, better crabcake than many I've had in Baltimore, which is crabcake-central! (theirs had fresh dill inside for a nice change of pace)
I would avoid The Crab's Claw, though (unfortunate CHOW recommendation): the conch fritters were too salty, the steam pot for two had some average lobster, (great clams), average shrimp, and was missing the crab claws! WTF?

My mouth's watering thinking about the blackened shrimp! (hope it's still on the menu by next week!) I know my wife and I will make it there, but it looks like the 'rents are fighting to keep the Sanitary on the menu!
Thanks again!

BBQ Fish--Does it exist?

Thanks, Broke-grad! Doesn't look like they ship and it looks like it's a bit out of the way. I've had their beer before, though. Perhaps next year we'll go down the coast on the way to Atlantic Beach...

Thanks, MamaSq! I'll have to look them up and get them to ship me some!

We're stopping for the night in Petersburg, VA (most likely Olde Towne) and are looking for some good eats in Petersburg, VA. Vegetarian or seafood preferred, but an amazing chef who's open for options would be great...
Thanks!

BBQ Fish--Does it exist?

Has anyone ever heard of BBQ fish? Doesn't matter if it's dry-rubbed, wet, sweet or whatever. We're driving from Baltimore to Atlantic Beach and are wondering:
a. Does BBQ fish exist?
b. If so, is there anywhere in eastern VA or NC that makes it?
(Thanks in advance)

Thanks, Naco--know any good places in Petersburg, VA? We're now planning to stop in Richmond for the afternoon and then dinner and B&B in Petersburg. Ideas?

Thanks, Bob--we'll make a trip to Beaufort for sure! Cheers!

Thanks, D! Appreciate the rec's. Will have to make the drive to Beaufort and try Blue Moon. We'll probably try the Crab's Claw as well--know if they serve local seafood? We heard some disappointing reports about Sanitary (non-local, often frozen seafood) and will probably avoid.

We'll be staying in Atlantic Beach for a week and are looking for some good vegetarian eats. Any style, but would also like some finer dining options, perhaps even chefs that will do an interesting vegetarian sampler (that's not just the side dishes of the night).
We eat some seafood, but mostly stick to ovo-lacto fare.
Organic, local home-made fare would be amazing if it exists down there...

Traveling from Baltimore to Atlantic Beach, NC

Hey, y'all--we're driving down 95 through Richmond next week and are looking for a great, stand-out place for dinner on a Saturday night (that we're willing to cut off from 95 to get to).
We'll probably stop somewhere south of Richmond for the night, so south VA or north NC would be the range.
We're both ovo-lacto-pesco-vegetarians, otherwise known as "flexitarians", so unless you know of a great fish-BBQ joint, BBQ is out. Would love to find one of those one-of-a-kind Diners that one sometimes sees on the Guy Thierry's Food Network show "diners, drive-ins, & dives". Doesn't really matter what kind of food (veggie burgers with the works, amazing French, home-made Italian, super-hot Thai), just that it will be worth the trip! Thanks!
