ocracoke oyster roast = great community & good eats
The Annual Ocracoke Oyster Roast is as much about the love for the sea of the Ocracoke fishermen as it is an unlimited supply of fresh oysters and huge quantities of fresh fish stew. Connie Leinbach writing for the Ocracoke Observer makes us wish we had been there!
“Al Dawes of Greenville was working on his second peck of steamed oysters mid-afternoon Saturday during the ninth Annual Oyster Roast at the Ocracoke Seafood Company in Ocracoke Village.
“He’s been eating for one and a half hours,” said his wife, Casey, with a laugh, as Al barely slowed his pace of shucking and slurping the freshly steamed oysters.
“This is the King Kong table,” Al continued, fully expecting to consume oysters until the end of the event. The Dawes’ came for the weekend especially to eat oysters, shrimp and fish stew.”
