When Ronnie and Revonda Williams purchased Zora’s Seafood Market last June, they helped to carry on a legacy that began on Castle Street in the 1950s.

While Zora’s has changed hands several times and some points been closed for a number of years, someone, often a relative of the original owners, has always stepped up to revive the business. It has always served as a seafood market and, at times, a carryout restaurant.

The Williamses previously operated Ronnie’s Cooking Shack on Third Street, and when Ronnie Williams moved to Zora’s, he changed the name to Ronnie’s Crab Shack at Zora’s. The business is located at 1411 Castle St.

Now, the market at Ronnie’s provides fresh seasonal fish and seafood, such as flounder, shrimp, scallops, oysters and crabs, while the kitchen serves shrimp burgers, seafood platters, steamed and fried crabs and homemade crab cakes, along with homemade sides and desserts.

The market is open Monday through Saturday fro 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and the kitchen is open Wednesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Call-ahead orders are encouraged as all meals are prepared to order. The full menu is available on the market's Facebook page
