SNAPSHOT: Snapperz Grill & Steam Bar

 

 

Snapperz Grill & Steam Bar is a restaurant that any visitor to the Crystal Coast needs to visit. Located in Morehead City, Snapperz has a little of something for everybody. Snapperz is the bigger and better offspring of Flipperz Family Bar & Grill in Emerald Isle.

This local favorite is the epitome of Crystal Coast Cuisine. There are tons of reasons you should come to Snapperz, but here are just ten.

The Top Ten Reason to Come to Snapperz!!!

 

1) A comfortable, family friendly atmosphere.

If your family is big or loud or all of the above, don’t worry! Snapperz is a laid back family restaurant. You don’t need to worry about bringing the kids or your husband’s loud laugh.

 

2) Reasonable prices.

Snapperz is a medium-priced eatery. Don’t worry about breaking the bank! They’ve got something for every price range.

 

3) Come see the Shrimp Boat—now a boat bar!

Snapperz has converted a 26’ shrimp boat called the “Harper Grace” into a fun boat bar. It matches the great décor you’ll find throughout the restaurant.

 

4) Crystal Coast cuisine at its finest.

Snappers sells amazing seafood selection! But what makes it so special is that many items are harvested locally.

 

5) Enjoy a Crystal Coast treat, the Crystal Coast Steam Pot.

Crystal Coast knows that the best way to make a steam pot is to load it with crab legs, clams, sausage, shrimp, red potatoes and corn and then to steam it up. And that’s how Snapperz does it! It’s served with cocktail sauce, drawn butter and slaw.

 

6) Local charm.

From the nautical décor to the 275 year-old oak trees outside, Snapperz is a perfect reflection of the easy-going Crystal Coast community and spirit.

 

7) Consistent quality service.

Snapperz values their friends and customers who visit. So they want every patron to leave full and happy, knowing they had the best quality food and service.

 

8) A large bar area.

The boat bar is just one part of Snapperz extensive sports bar section. This full service bar features eight big screen TV’s where you can watch your favorite sporting events.

 

9) Great live entertainment.

Snapperz regularly schedules amazing bands and entertainers from all over. The live entertainment doesn’t stop when the summer season ends, so check the schedule to see when bands are playing.

 

10) Family, friends & fellowship.

At the end of the day, it’s all about having an amazing experience with your nearest and dearest.

Emerald Isle Keeps It Clean & Nice

Emerald Isle is Keeping Their Community Clean and Beautiful

 

The motto of Emerald Isle in the Crystal Coast is “Nice Matters!” This small coastal community reflects this motto in their treatment of visitors to their beautiful shores—southern hospitality at its best! But it is also reflected in the way they respect their beaches, marshlands and roads. The people of Emerald Isle place a huge value in keeping their area litter free!

Gary Chamberlain, a Murphy, North Carolina resident, recently wrote an editorial complimenting and thanking the residents of Emerald Isle for their pride in ownership and the way they’ve kept their community clean. He thanked them for their efforts to be “a nearly perfect, litter-free community.” Gary is an anti-litter advocate working closely with America The Beautiful & Bag Ready Jobs. In his many travels, he states that “I have never visited a cleaner community than Emerald Isle.”

Keeping Emerald Isle clean means everyone leads a hand, or a claw. Photo Credit.

The love of Emerald Isle and the desire to keep her beautiful starts from the top. The Emerald Isle Town Hall distributes tons of information to its residents about Garbage and Recycling regulations. But this does little unless the people are behind it. And the people of Emerald Isle have embraced this! From church groups to students to individuals, the people volunteer and pick up trash because they want to see the beauty of Emerald Isle unspoiled by litter. There’s even a Facebook Community called Emerald Isle: NO LITTER ZONE which organizes beach cleanup days.

If you’re looking for a safe, clean and kind location for your next vacation, look no further than Emerald Isle in the Crystal Coast. Keeping America beautiful starts one community at a time. And hopefully, with examples like Emerald Isle leading the way, it will spread all throughout our nation.

History comes alive at the Crystal Coast.

History comes alive at the Crystal Coast.

The Crystal Coast is a collective name for the seaside communities south of the Outer Banks. It starts at New Bern in the north and ends south at Bogue Banks. Included are beautiful beaches like Emerald Isle and Atlantic Beach, as well as towns rich with history like Beaufort and Swansboro. The beaches are some of the best you’ll find on the East Coast, but without much of the hustle and bustle you’ll find in other coastal towns. It also happens to be an area of deep historical significance to North Carolina.

This area has seen so much—pirates, Civil War battles and a thriving fishing trade. You’ll find historic homes, museums and an infamous history. In fact, just three miles off the coast lie the remains of the Queen Anne’s Revenge, Blackbeard the pirate’s dreaded ship. And that’s not all! 2,000 sea vessels met a watery end off the coast. Diving in these warm, clear waters is a very popular pastime. Below the ocean’s surface, see history up close.

 

Explore the many waterways of the Crystal Coast.

Explore the many waterways of the Crystal Coast.

Tons of waterways crisscross the Crystal Coast, so come explore by boat, kayak or canoe. This area also boasts the longest fishing season on the Atlantic Coast, so you can angle up some fish all year round! The multiple species caught throughout these waters often make an appearance at area restaurants. The dining here ranges from fine to casual, but everywhere you’ll be greeted with hospitality.

Come learn about the amazing history or just come for the peace and solitude. See the wonder of nature at Cape Lookout National Seashore or soak up some rays. No matter what you do, the stress of daily living will melt away. Enjoy exploring the Crystal Coast!
