CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WWAY) -- It was a soup-er weekend in Carolina Beach as Southeastern North Carolina's best chefs went head to head in the 16th Annual Pleasure Island Chowder Cook-Off.

Hundred of folks came out to sample the delicious concoctions. Celebrity judges, including WWAY's own Chris Phillips helped crown the king chowder. Congressman Mike McIntyre was also a judge. He said the festival is a great way to showcase our special corner of the world and kick off tourism season.

"We have some of the best chefs throughout this area,” McIntyre said. “People love to come to this part of North Carolina for seafood as well. This is a really unique and fun contest, and we are excited to have such a great turnout of folks. It's really about family and food and festivity. It combines all three in a great way."

Seven restaurants competed for the prize, but in the end, the judges chose O'charley's as their winner, and the people's choice award went to Havana's.
