Good Friend Shrimp and Oysters

I ate here today for the first time. The service was a little slow but not terrible. The prices were average. Prices were actually less than I expected. I had fried shrimp and oysters. I could have eaten a few more shrimp and oysters but the food was very good.

We needed to eat around 9 pm and this place was open. The restaurant next door had just closed. I had their seafood soup that came not hot and a small tossed salad. My husband had a salad and a beer, the bill was over $30 so what we hot it was expensive. The next night we went someplace else.

Food was great and server was very nice but part of my daughters food didn't come until after the bill which included an extra charge for the missing food. Food that was already included in the original price of the meal. When I asked her to remove the extra charge and give us a discount for the food that came... More

I ordered the Pamlico platter which is 3 kinds of seafood. I had fried oysters, scallops, and shrimp. with slaw and asparagus as my side orders and a cup of... More

Have eaten there many times and I love the food and the view from the patio. This is the second time that the lunch service was terrible. After waiting to be seated, even though there empty tables, we continued to wait to have our order taken. After being ignored for about 25 minutes we walked out. Please get more help!!... More

I liked the food, and overall it was a good experience, but do feel the environment could be more welcoming. The people were friendly and the service was good.

I did not find anything special with the food. The view from the deck of the river does make a nice change of pace, but I would not consider this a place to go for a "Night Out".

Washington, NC is our newly adopted home town, so we were looking forward to our first visit to this restaurant. It's an inviting looking eatery in and ideal river front location and we have the impression that this is where locals gather on a regular basis, both for lunch and after work drinks and socializing. Our impression though, is that... More

This is the one restaurant in Washington that our local business clients said we had to try, and I completely agree. The location on the water is beautiful and the food is excellently prepared and artfully presented. The large outdoor patio offers wonderful views of the water and the sunset. Prices are very reasonable for the quality. I highly recommend... More
