Prices were kind of high for what you get, but the food was pretty good. Took home a fair amount, which is a bonus for us.

Stopped in and had some great deep fried seafood. The best hush puppies ever. I got the commander and Cheif way to much for one person to eat. Wife got oysters,clams and shrimp and said it was great also. Great sweet tea also. If you like fried seafood this is the place!

We ate take-out for dinner our last night. We had the large shrimp plates; they were amazing, the shrimps were huge. We were expecting little shrimps but we were surprised when we opened the boxes. It is a must eat at. We will be returning to eat there next time.

Went for fresh fish. Everything was fairly bland. The shrimp was steamed in a salty steamer. The flounder was better but the best part of the meal was the salad and hush puppies. Still searching for a good non-fried seafood restaurant.

My husband and I decided to try Bowman's after several friends suggested it. We were pleasantly pleased with our meal. The hushpuppies were brought right away after ordering our meal and they were hot and delicious. We ordered our food and it was on our table 10 minutes later. We will visit Bowman's again next month when we take our... More

,,,where these glowing reviews came from, but we were not impressed at all. None of my fried oysters, scallops, or shrimp was recognizable by taste or flavor, and all were full of grease. One son's boiled shrimp was just awful, appearing to be frozen bagged shrimp boiled without salt or any Old Bay or other seasoning, and was totally flavorless.... More

We took a friend from Colorado here for a weekday lunch while playing tourist in the area (It was not my first visit to the restaurant). Food was good, fairly priced with good service. In fact, our friend raved over the NC barbeque. This is a locally owned place. Don't let the "ordinary" outside appearance fool you. It's what's inside... More

I make better food at home myself! My salad was full of hard, white pieces of iceberg lettuce, the ranch dressing was watered down & tasteless and they charged an extra $5 to add grilled chicken which was also tasteless. My niece barely touched her burger and my husband's fish sandwich was not much better than a fast food McFish.... More
