Birthday Lunch with friends

We all had the broiled stuffed fish. It was cooked to perfection. Service was good, food came out in a timely fashion. Prices are very reasonable. Overall a great place for seafood when you are in the area.

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

This is a basic seafood place. Service was great, prices were inexpensive, but don't expect any gourmet finds.

Austin Thanks for dining with us and taking the time to write a review. You are exactly right about Pier 41 Seafood in that we are a basic family style seafood restaurant.

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.
