Shelby Jeans Restaurant is a prime example of Carolina Beach’s love of late-night destinations and good southern restaurants, and this centrally located establishment that’s a minute’s walk away from the shoreline features all the late-night good times and all-day good eats that Cape Fear vacationers expect. Featuring a slightly elevated menu where seafood steals the scene, this hot spot is a good destination of fun, food and drink for everyone in the party.
The menu is nicely varied, with a big selection of appetizers, sandwiches, Boardwalk Burgers, Boardwalk Steamers, soups and salads, and entrees, and every section has its own unique entries. Patrons in the mood for something different can feast on a half-pound Bison Burger, a fried green tomato sandwich, or the fresh catch of the day sandwich, which are all just light enough to fulfill an appetite before a night on the town. For something heartier, try the Cajon Shrimp and Grits, the Tequila Lime Chicken, or the Baby Back Ribs, which are all hearty but wonderfully coastal and / or southern options on the Entrée menu. With a full menu filled with complementing cocktails and brews, and plenty of seasonal live entertainment, patrons will want to linger will after their meal is over to start a new, after-hours adventure.
