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!

Harriette Thanks for the wonderful review! I am very happy that you enjoy dining with us here at the Pier. I believe your favorite items are very similar to mine all the way down to the hushpuppies and tea. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and hopefully we will see you back here soon. God Bless!

Baked Flounder, fired shrimp, and hush puppies. Some of the best seafood this side of Calabash. Fresh pop in your mount shrimp, flaky flounder and all too much to eat.

Owner Steve Runkle makes sure you are satisfied. He visits all his patrons while they are dining. First thing on the table is a basket of hot hushpuppies with honey/butter spread. This is not fine dining but really good fresh seafood prepared the Calabash style. His Gumbo is rich. Most times a garden salad and a bowl of his gumbo... More
