If you want that old-style, fish camp type food, where everything is fried and breaded, go to Love's. We found this place while traveling through town, and we liked it a lot. The food was hot and there was plenty of it. We should've shared a plate. If you've never been before, you order at the counter when you go... More

Stopped in at the Fish Box for a quick bite with friends and was pleasantly surprised. I ordered the small butterfly shrimp plate and was glad I got small. There were at least 12 nice sized, perfectly fried shrimp on the small plate. The plate came with fresh fries, really good hush puppies, and decent slaw. Service was counter style...order... More

We ordered catfish and had side order of okra. We got the senior portion but it was a huge amount of food. Was excellent and not greasy. You order first and then sit in the restaurant area which is decorated with all sorts of neat antiques. Very friendly and clean. Can't wait to go back!!

If you want a local flare, this is your place. While the price of entres are mostly over $10, you're going to get plenty of food for the price. If you go with the 2 or 3 item combo you can easily share with another adult. I personally suggest the flounder as it is always delicious.

My husband's grandfather loved going to Love's and we took him for his 97th birthday....it was the last time we've been. I look forward to going back. We ordered take out from there when my parents were in town. They don't have fish camps where they live. They loved it - and so do we! Always clean, friendly and service... More

Classic Southern fried fish, and it doesn't get any better. Fresh, made to order by people who have been doing this for a very long time.

Can call in your order and usually its a very short wait. I love the salt and pepper shrimp. My family likes the chicken tenders and the catfish. Great place to eat in or take out.

Never miss a chance to eat at Love's Fish Box when in the area. Resturant has changed from a little walk up to providing seats in a new building. Fish still prepared and fried to a satisfying meal.

You can get take-out or eat in. We like to eat there as the dining room is so nicely decorated and super clean. The staff is friendly and the fish is always hot and fresh. My husband and I have eaten here alot since they open and we have never been displeased. The prices are very fair.
