Best Calabash style and broiled Seafood (A 100 Rated Restaurant)

Menu has many choices, reasonable prices, and cooking options. I ordered a broiled dinner with shrimp, scallops, flounder, crab cake, house salad and sweet potato fries. It was very generous in size and cooked perfectly. Others ordered fried plates and they loved theirs. Get off I-95 and take a... read more

Ann Thank you very much for the awesome review. I am glad that you ventured off I-95 to come eat dinner with us and that you enjoyed it so much. Being in the south, our fried seafood is a huge attraction but as you found, the broiled seafood is a real treat. Thanks for taking the time to give us... More

Very greasy. Apparently, this is what the locals like. If you want seafood, head to the coast. This was like an Arthur Treachers fish and chips.

Jerry Wow, it sounds like we really let you down. I am very sorry that you did not like your dinner. I assure you that the locals do not like eating greasy seafood. We actually pride ourselves in being able to produce fried seafood that is not greasy. Obviously, that did not work well in your case. I would love... 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.
