History of Frost Seafood House

Sinclair Gas Station

Sinclair Gas Station

Nestled in the heart of Bogue Banks you will find a small fishing village, Salter Path. Among its many historic establishments is a family-oriented seafood restaurant, Frost Seafood House. Established in 1956, Frost Seafood House began as Sinclair Gas Station after the owners added an extension originally dubbed The Sportsman Grill. The original owner was Edwin Guthrie, known locally as "A.". It wasn't long before the gas station was converted into a full time restaurant, renamed A & Francis where it became a hot spot for fresh local seafood. In 1979 the establishment was purchased by the Frost family, another local family from Salter Path who subsequently re-christened the restaurant as "Frost Seafood House."
