Very good seafood. Servers are friendly. Food is served in very reasonable amount of time, being they are usually very busy. One of the best restaurants in calabash. Prices very reasonable. They have an early bird special. Same serving size but cheaper. Good deal. They have weekly lunch specials too.

The fried Perch was fantastic, but the fried Sea Trout was filled with bones. Fried shrimp were fall, almost popcorn shrimp, but tasted okay. Our service was pretty horrible and I am not sure we would ever go back, especially with the nicer/newer Captain John's right next door, which is also much bigger and has outdoor seating.

Waste of time and money. So dissapointed. Grilled Salmon was overcooked. My wife had the crab cakes and we have had better quality out of frozen box at the grocery store.

We drove from Myrtle Beach as we were looking for calabash seafood and found this restaurant.

The fresh broiled Tuna steak was awesome, love the hush puppies with the sweet honey butter. My niece loved the food too.

The service was not great. 1 server to wait on 19 people is rediculous. The server we had was the only good thing about the entire night. He did the best he could do under the circumstances. The hostess set us outside and no one ever came out to wait on us. We had to come back in to get... More

Made a point to go out of our way to eat there after leaving Myrtle Beach. This restaurant was recommended to us. Shrimp was so tiny you had mostly breading and lots of grease. The service was even worse. Would never return. Bad, bad, bad!

The food seemed frozen and not fresh most stuff only came fried. Our waitress was eating at another table while serving us and another family

I realize that Calabash is a busy place filled with tourists, but their food is awful. My family has agreed to never visit here again.
