Traditional fried Carolina seafood with other options as well. Service is always fast and cheerful. Food is great, a good place to eat if fried seafood is what you want!

John Thanks for the great review and for your loyal business. It's easy to be cheerful when we get to serve happy people. If you haven't tried our broiled seafood, you may want to give it a shot. It's actually pretty awesome! Enjoy your summer. More

We must have eaten at Pier 41 many times over the past years. I'm not sure how many years but I am from the area and visit home at least 2 times each year and have made it a point to eat there at least once on every trip. I've noticed the restaurant has been updated and is looking nicer... More

My husband, a friend and I visited this restaurant because it was rated the #1 restaurant in Lumberton through tripadvisor. It does not deserve that title. I am from Arkansas, however, and we are used to a crispy cornmeal battered catfish. What we received from this place was soft, greasy catfish and shrimp. You get hush puppies as an appetizer,...

Dana Thanks for taking your time to write us a review. I am sorry that you did not enjoy your dinner. It sounds like we should have fried it a little harder to suit your taste. Hushpuppys are a signature item and everyone does theirs a little different. Ours are a combination of corn meal and flour that yield a... More

If you love calabash style seafood, you can't go wrong eating here. The food, service and hospitality are excellent. The owner stops and talks to each table. He sat with us for a few minutes to visit. After reading all of the trip advisor reviews we planned a stop here on the way to Florida. We were not disappointed! There... More

A classic seafood restaurant with lots of choices. Not only do they have a wide variety of seafood, you can get small or large servings baked, broiled, fried (calabash-style), or boiled! The hush puppies were addictive, and the catfish and shrimp were delicious. It's a large place that is used to handling crowds. Get there early if you visit on... More
