not what it used to be

This place has also gone downhill over the years. Stay away from anything with seafood dressing - it is very hit and miss and even one experience with bad, foul seafood dressing is enough to turn you off for life.

My boyfriend and I went here to eat breakfast while on vacation. Walking immidiatly the hostess (allison) acted like we were an inconvenience. We asked to be seated outside and she scoffed and took us that way. We waited for 15 minutes without seeing anyone, not even for a drink order. I had to go inside and find a server... More

They do serve good friend fish, but the portions are too small with the exception of the flounder.

This is a very good seafood restaurant. I love the crab meat augratin. Everything is always fresh and cooked to perfection. The ambiance is excellent...just right for couples and cozy chats without having to yell to be heard.

Was not impressed at ALL! Took forever for our server to take our order and they were not even busy then took even longer for us to get our food. I ordered the broiled shrimp and crab and it had no taste at all! Will never eat here again.

We had passed by this restaurant many times and never stopped. This weekend we did. It was wonderful!! First, we were greeted with all smiles by the staff. Then, the food (shrimp tacos, fish and shrimp po boy, salad) were fabulous. Huge amount of food. Loved our waitress Cece. Definitely will return on our next trip.

We were seated and hostess took drink orders. 15 minutes later, our orders had not been taken. (The restaurant was only 1/4 full). I sought out the hostess and asked her to order crab claws appetizer. Again we waited. We asked a passing waitress if she would take our order. She said she would see who our waitress was. She...

A local favorite. Breakfast menu is extensive and very good. My family has eaten breakfast probably more than 30 times over the last 2 years. Have eaten lunch and dinner many, many times. Breakfast: omelets are excellent and you can also design your own omelet, pancakes are very, very large. Lunch variety is extensive as is the Dinner menu. We... More

For years McElroys has been a very good seafood restaurant. I had lunch with friends and the food was so disappointing. I had Shrimp Alfredo. It was very dry and had no flavor. It was also served lukewarm. The shrimp still had the black vein down the back and was very gross!
