Dirty Dicks is okay

Dirty Dicks is an okay restaurant. It has a very strong and long menu. We went on a Sunday night and it was full - and noisy. The waitress had errors in two of the six orders, but quickly corrected them. The fried food, fish and shrimp, was well fried and a large portion of the menu is fried... read more

Dirty Dicks is just another chain restaurant. We ate here because it was convenient at the time, but after dinner we wished we had driven a little more to eat at a locally owned seafood restaurant. The waitress seemed to be trying too hard to get us to like her. She ended up making my husband and I very uncomfortable... More

Impulse lunch, a bit of regret. Touristy fried food. $100 lunch for 4. Next time fresh local produce and creative whole grains for me. C'est la vie.

Super over priced! This was my first time at dirty dicks and I have to say for the amount you're getting, this seafood is WAY overpriced- quality of crab was barely okay.. Wouldn't come back. Better vibe and food at the mad crabber up the road.

We ate here a few nights ago. Menu wasn't that great. Food was horrible. We had a party of 9 (5 adults, 2 teens, & 2 kids). The only ones who liked their food were the 2 kids--kinda hard to mess up mini corn dogs & popcorn shrimp. Will not return & advise anyone looking for good seafood to keep... More

Went there as a group of four for lunch. The place wasn't very busy and the service was quick and our waitress was pleasant. We all enjoyed our meals, very filling! Would recommend to others

They seemed to be sold out of quite a lot and that did cause some issues. The waitress was very pleasant and service was well timed. Seems particularly pricey for fried seafood

They were busy but we were sat right away and staff acted as a team to make sure we were taken care of. Crab stuffed flounder was awesome. Hubby had seafood augratin which was very rich but very good. Yummy specialty drinks too. Hush puppies were over cooked but we didn't need them anyway because we had more than enough... More

We had eleven in our group. There was no wait. Thursday night. The food was great. Very nice waiter. Good service and atmosphere. Was very pleased. Definitely will try to get back and try something else on the menu. I got the steak burger. It was very good. And I loved the French fries.

This was money well spent. Amazing service, and the food was fantastic. Kids had shrimp basket and chicken basket. 12 mid-sized shrimp. A full chicken breast. Fries, fruit. I ordered a pound of steamed shrimp - great size, clean, no chlorinated taste. Had to "make" my own cocktail sauce, but was given a ton of horseradish sauce and ketchup galore... More
