My husband & I love to eat at Squid's. Their food is always outstanding! Of course you could be waiting because its very popular with the locals. We really enjoy eating in the bar, especially for the 1/2 priced oysters before 6pm. People are quite friendly and we find many fun conversations. The main restaurant is a wonderful place to... More

We ate here twice during our stay because one person in our party really enjoyed the food and friendly service. The food was expensive and was just ok, not delicious. The first night, I had the grilled shrimp. The shrimp were alright, a little bit over cooked. The lemon risotto it came with had so much lemon it was hard... More

Seafood is always fresh and a great selection. I especially like the oysters on the half shell and the peel and east shrimp.

One of my favorite regular restaurants in Chapel Hill. It is a favorite spot for folks who have lived in Chapel Hill for a long time. Food is good and the staff is great. If you sit at the oyster bar, you will make new friends before the evening has ended!

Squids has been in its locations for years and is a reliable and good night out. It has a ggod bar, outdoor seating in good weather, and very good seafood cooked any way you like it. The hush puppies with dinner are sinful. No reservations, so on some busy nights you may need to try out the bar while waiting.

The seafood is always fresh & delicious! I love, love, love the beet and goat cheese salad. It's a very popular restaurant, so call ahead during peak times.

Nice seafood restaurant. Very complete menu, very nice raw bar. Not the fanciest seafood restaurant. good selection of fried seafood if that is your fancy, but broiled and sautéed selections may be better at other restaurants. More of a family style restaurant than a fancy meal. Very good prices and value. Recommend when you are in a seafood mood.

If you go before 5, sit outside and enjoy some delicious peel and eat shrimp,a tasty salad and a glass of wine! Just delightful! They serve terrific hush puppies to accompany your meal and the service is great!
