So long...

Don't plan on doing aNutting else if you eat there. Two hours at the minimum....tables and bar are open and we just sat there and watched them open. Good luck. The last time I go here.

Not really what I expected, on entering the restaurant we were asked immediately if we wanted a table or the oyster bar. We sat at a table and ordered a dozen steamed oysters anyway. The oysters were delicious. My dinner was one of the fresh catch specials, blackened tuna, some of the best I've ever eaten. The tuna was clearly... More

We have passed this restaurant many times as my wife and I traveled to Fayetteville to shop or to visit a doctor, but never seemed to be here near meal time. But it was different this time. We had a night to ourselves and decided on "dinner and a movie" with dinner at 316 Oyster Bar and Seafood Grill. What... More

If youre going to go to this restaurant, go early. Place fills up fast regardless of the day of the week. Probably the best seafood in town, but it wouldn't compare to places closer to the ocean with real seafood. Prices vary depending on what you want. Easy parking, clean restaurant and restrooms, but its not great by real sea... More

My date was excited to take me to her favorite local seafood joint, so I was pretty optimistic about having an awesome experience. Maybe my mistake was ordering fish. I don't know. The service at 316 was proficient and friendly, but the food was totally mediocre. I got the special, which was billed as "Tilapia, shrimp and deviled crab," with... More

We only go to this restaurant when we are in the area once a year and always take friends here for dinner. Last year I said I would not return as the food was bland, cold and I did not receive fish prepared the way I ordered it but it took so long to get the order, I ate it... More

Was looking forward to myself, my wife and seven of our friends enjoying some seafood for a birthday dinner. Several of us drove separate and arrived at different times. The first arriving part of our group told the staff there would be 9 total diners to help them prepare for the larger than normal group. Upon the arrival of everyone... More

Had the opportunity to eat dinner here with my husband. Atmosphere was great and upbeat!!! The shrimp was very bland with no "sea" flavor!! I've eaten and caught my own shrimp in the past and this flavor didnt come close to that!!

I have been to the 316 twice. I went back the second time to confirm my decision to never go back, well also hoping that my first visit was not a normal evening for the restaurant. Both visits were on the poor side of service, atmosphere, and food quality. Don't spend the money and just go to the Red Lobster.... More
