Excellent food at a reasonable price.

Food was hot and delivered to table within 10 minutes. We had just driven over 500 miles and this was one of the restaurants that the hotel recommended.

WOW, went with a Church group and it was outstanding. If we had not made reservations, we would still be standing in line. Great taste, friendly service and the owner came around to check on us several times. I will be going back. The seafood was better than most places at Myrtle Beach,SC.

This restaurant is very basic, no bar or alcohol but good seafood. It's very busy on weekends, but service is fast and the waiting line goes fast. Prices are low and the size of a small plate is very generous!

My husband and I stayed in the lumberton area and decided to eat at this seafood place. It was packed on this Saturday night, a good sign! We were seated quickly and received attentive service.

Travelers on I95 want a local experience and good food at good prices. Well Pier 41 provides all that . This very large restaurant is a few miles off the highway and is open from 11AM all day.

My late husband and I traveled up and down I-95 many times over many years and were huge fans of Jimmy's Seafood in Lumberton. (In fact, we were known to have been there for lunch waiting for the restaurant to open and making one long drive to be there before the restaurant closed for dinner). When Jimmy's closed, I was...

Wanted some seafood driving on I-95. This place is a very casual place. Food came out very quick and piping hot. Most of menu is fried but there are non-fried choices. Waitress very attentive. Saw they have a health department rating of A 99 (out of 100). Would definitely stop here again. They seem to do a very big take-iout... More

The place was packed, so we thought there'd be a long wait. On the contrary, we were seated almost immediately! Our server Crystal promptly greeted us and took our order. During our wait for the food (which wasn't long at all), we noticed the busboys working diligently and professionally on the tables as guests cleared. These two young men were... More

If you love fried, Calabash-style seafood this is the place for you. You will think you are at the beach, the food is fresh and delish! Staff is friendly and the tea is sweet! There are a few items for the non-seafood lover and most are offered boiled or broiled if you are staying away from fried! Yummy hushpuppies too!
