Morehead City has a new kid on the block:  Snapperz Grill and Steam Bar3710 Arendell Street.  Their website says that Snapperz is "HOME OF THE STEAMPOT" --  your one stop restaurant for steamed oysters, clams, crab and shrimp, also serving any kind of seafood, steak entrees, salads, big burgers and sandwiches complete with garnish bar, beer, wine and mixed beverages. Recently, hubby and I decided to try it for lunch since we were already in Morehead City.  

Specials are listed on a chalkboard as you enter.

The restaurant is small but has lots of charm.  Booths are all named after fish and have photos and stats on each fish on the inside walls.  
We sat in Wahoo Alley.
We got to Snapperz around 11:30 and it was already starting to fill up.  
I ordered the crabcake appetizer, because I didn't want any bread.
The crabcake had no flavor and had a good amount of bread filling.  The mango salsa was very forgettable and the coleslaw was just barely okay.  (I stole some of Guy's french fries which were good.)
Guy ordered the Soft Shell Crab Sandwich on special.  The crab had no flavor and the roll was blah.  The french fries were good.
By the time we left, the place was packed and everyone looked very happy.  Snapperz is wildly popular, but we don't intend to go back.  Our favorite Morehead City restaurant is still Chefs 105, where there's lots of atmosphere and all the food is cooked to perfection --their crab cakes have no filler and lots of flavor.
