My family of 7 dined here for lunch today, and we were pleased. We drove an hour and a half to meet up with a family member who was traveling through NC, and this was the spot we chose based on the TripAdvisor reviews that we read. I'm glad we did! I must admit that I was a little concerned... More

First of, the wait staff is super friendly and I could probably fill up on hush puppies alone, they are on point. The shrimp are always cooked perfect and for a seafood restaurant, they have awesome barbecue. Very quick service and delicious food in a family atmosphere, out family eats here frequently and we have never had any complaints!

We stopped on our way from the beach and were impressed with the fast friendly service. Both the broiled and fried fish were as good as on the coast.

I was a little disappointed as the reviews were so good. I was expecting a little more upmarket restaurant which is ok if the food is really good. I ordered the Deluxe seafood platter .I asked for Jumbo shrimp, they said it came with the Deluxe. Well the shrimp were small to medium , nowhere near jumbo, very mediocre. I... More

We stopped here for dinner on our trip from Florida to Nags Head NC. The restaurant is large and bustling with happy people....customers and servers. This is not a romantic candlelit ambience but a perfect place for families and anyone wanting a great meal at a great price. My husband and I split the broiled seafood platter and there was... More

Wow, you made my day. Thanks for the glowing review. I am glad that you enjoyed the broiled seafood. We live in an area that loves it fried seafood but we are shifting some eating patterns over to the broiled. Once our fried lovers give it a try, they usually stick with it. We thank you for your business and... More

While staying at the Holiday Inn in Lumberton this past May 24/25th we saw this restaurant in the brochure in the hotel and decided to give it a try. So glad we did! Our food was wonderful! They gave way too much food but it was delicious. The owner even stopped by our table to chat with us. Very nice... More

I am very happy that you enjoyed you dinner with us. Our portions are pretty large as that has been a tradition. You may want to look at our house special plates which are smaller. We look forward to your return and thank you for the review. God Bless. More

My wife and I had dinner at pier 41 Seafood two nights ago based upon the Tripadvisor recommendations. My wife had the broiled salmon, which was very well done and came with a salad and a baked potato. I ordered the deluxe fried patter.

Thank you for eating with us last week. I apologize that your flounder was over cooked but glad the rest was good. The Calabash Seafood style uses smaller sized shrimp but we lightly flour them which should yield a very flavorful and tender product. Hopefully you found that to be the case although they were smaller than you expected. I'm... More

If you want good "Calabash" style seafood without going to the beach, and at a much less expensive cost, this is the place for you. Great food, a good selection, and reasonable price. For Seniors and those with small appetites they offer smaller platters. The hushpuppies are almost as good as the seafood, and all the waitresses are friendly and... More
