A Different Approach

This restaurant is literally housed in a former power generation facility. I love Fayetteville and it has many quaint and unique shops and restaurants. This place has good food, not the best I've had by a far shot, but still good enough to take a trip.

We went to The Powerhouse after an extensive search for fresh raw oysters in Fayetteville. I ordered a dozen fresh oysters as well as a plate of shrimp scampi and my husband ordered the seafood fettuccine. My first issue was that all of the food came out at once which was a real bummer because we had to rush through... More

We go here often for family get togethers, we are seated promptly and the service is very good.. Fresh fish is limited but always tasty, and I love the Sunday Snow Crab special! Try the Kilowatt!

We used to enjoy eating at this restaurant, but last time we were there, the host seated another table and us at the same time. Fine, but the other table got waited on first so we got up and left. When he asked what happened we told him, and he said he forgot to tell the waiter we were seated... More

Thank you for visiting Powerhouse and while you said both tables were seated at the same time, I do apologize for the server not greeting you and taking your order first. I know that had to be an embarrassment and we hope you will give us a chance to show that we try not to make errors like that in... More

While there are a few menu items that are NOT shrimp, like most "seafood" restaurants, theirs is heavy laden with the little animal on the floor of the sea. And most of their dishes are fried. That's too easy. I don't have anything against shrimp...in fact I think they taste wonderful. But the trawlers that catch them literally tear up... More

Loved the menu choices, which are heavy on Gulf dishes. Prices are very reasonable, and service was superb. The unique atmosphere adds to the experience.

Was brought here on a business trip by a local friend. The restaurant itself used to be an old electricity powerhouse. It's been renovated and turned into an upscale sports bar type environment, but still family friendly. Enjoyed a great meal and service.

I went with a few friends to celebrate our birthday month. As we are all oyster lovers, we went during Happy Hour since they run a half price off raw oysters from 5-7PM. Their raw oysters on the half shell were very good...not the largest I've ever had, but tasty. They have a good selection of beers on tap. I've... More
