We stopped by this restaurant because some locals recommended it. The fried flounder and shrimp were absolutely delicious. Made to order so that the food was piping hot and not at all greasy. The sides are standard fare, but the seafood is wonderful. There are some picnic tables so you can eat your food there or get it to go.... More

Have been craving crab legs for days but our Grover's freezer leaves little to be desired for seafood. Was delighted to not only discover this place but that it had good reviews. They were out of crab the day we popped in but the fried trout was a champion. Super delicious! Will definitely be back.

Great little seafood shop/restaurant (take out). Plenty of options for fresh fish, shellfish, etc. Clean and efficient. No frills. Not always open, however. Check before you go. Usually open Thurs. thru Sat.

My wife and I went on Friday Oct 11th around 5:30. We ordered then sat outside on the wooden picnic tables. Our food... More

Fresh, amazing seafood in the North Georgia Mountains… What?? Southern Highlands Seafood specializes in just that! Although this is a real hole in the wall, the food is top notch. Nestled in Blue Ridge, this little seafood market/somewhat restaurant cooks up some really tasty food! We come here for the shrimp and fish. The shrimp is plump and juicy and... More

They're hard to catch open and with everything on the menu in stock, but if you can get them mid-day on the weekends, before the rush, it's incredibly delicious. Like a fine dining restaurant at the beach, the platters are either taken home or enjoyed on a modest screened porch right off of the highway but it is the best... More

Like to get our fresh shrimp here. Pick what you want and they will cook for you if you don't want to.

This place is a surprise! Looks kind of like a service station from the outside but the seafood was wonderful! When up in the mountains I wasn't expecting "fresh" seafood. I was totally surprised! Shrimp, scallops, fish...all excellent and cooked just right!
