Visited Mott's again today and it could not have been better. Moved to Wilmington a month ago and hands down Mott's is superior to all seafood markets in Brunswick County. The selection, service and freshness is phenomenal.

1st visit & I'll be back. Great selection and wonderful service. One nice touch was they offered to add ice to your bag. This is great if you forget to bring a cooler🤗

From the boat to your grill in minutes. If fresh fish is your thing, Motts' should be your choice. Just about any fish is available and at reasonable prices.
