we ordered the seafood kabobs which were good. there seemed to be many entre and dessert selections. Prices were average- not inexpensive but not expensive either. Wait staff was good.

We recently went to Squid's for the first time. I had the grilled shrimp with lemon risotto cake and my husband had the Genovese shrimp and scallops. Food was cooked great and we were served quickly. We also enjoyed the dessert of the day, strawberry shortcake, made with local strawberries.

You will find exceptional value, food and service here. I've eaten here several times with different servers and they do a great job. One did place a wrong order and then corrected it, apologized and the food arrived. The room can be a bit noisy but it is family style dining. Brighten up the decor would be a plus. I... More

Hubs and I went here based on previous trip advisor reviews. Oysters were awesome. Boullabaise acceptable. Tuna also acceptable. Nothing to write home about other than great service.

Ate dinner on 04/24/2015. Called earlier in the day to see if they took reservations, They responded, no reservation but do take a time and name for priority seating. She explained how it worked so I stated 7 pm. Arrived approximately 10 minutes early and were greeted and then seated immediately by a friendly staff. Waitress came immediately to explaining...

I had been meaning to get back to Squid's for a while and decided to go with family who were visiting from NY. It was awful. My cousin liked her Oyster salad with kale but her husband and I had very overcooked seafood. I ordered the seafood kabob and he ordered the swordfish--both recommended by the server. The scallops were... More

I've eaten here several times over the years and wanted to try it again. Sat at the bar for dinner for a change of pace. Raw oysters were excellent and the entrees were very good. They have a good selection of NC beers on tap. Service was top notch. A little pricey but worth it.

This is a somewhat upscale and pricy restaurant, but the prices are not outrageous. It is worth what you pay. The service is very good. The food is well-prepared and presented. I dined with three other people, and everyone was pleased with their meals. I was most impressed when the waitress informed me that the chef did not like the... More
