Good Calabash style seafood!

The breading of the seafood was light and the seafood was not greasy. The food was hot and staff was efficient!

I hate to write a poor review but won't be giving this place a 2nd chance. We had heard from friends that have ate here that's it's really good - well, we must have caught a bad night. Was on the way back home from a quick trip to Ocean Isle & thought we would stop cause we were starving.... More

In a last attempt to have seafood before heading home thought we would stop here based on hopeful reviews. Opted to try the Oyster stew - quite possibly the worst thing I have ever had in my life - tastes like oyster dumped in water. Flavorless. Coleslaw from a bag, clam chowder ala Campbell's and mushroom gravy from another entry... More

Last year, 2014, I had a GREAT fish meal with my fellow Civitan member. The amount of food served was VERY ample. The Service was EXCEPTIONAL.

We didn't want fast food so we stopped here for lunch on the way to Myrtle Beach. We each had the senior seafood plate of fried shrimp and oysters. The seafood was piled so high on our plates that we had to take some off to have room to put the tarter and cocktail sauces on the plate. Part of... More

Took my elderly mom to dales for oyster roast. It is hard to find restaurants offering roasts, so worth the fifty mile trip for her to enjoy. Cooked to order, good size and portion. Hot hush puppies also. Staff are friendly and just seems like a good place to take the entire family.

The food is plentiful particularly for a Senior who often do not want a huge plate. The food is good although the restaurant gets so busy that it is not always as clean and tidy as it could be. It does not stop me going and of course there is another one close by at Lake Waccamaw

The food was good and the staff were very friendly. The prices were reasonable and the portions were generous. I definitely recommend if you're in the area.

We met friends at Dale's Seafood for an Oyster Roast. Their oysters were very good, big, clean and tasty! They have a good menu, with lots of selections. The service was very good! If you're in the Whiteville area, and want good seafood, I'd definitely recommend Dale's!

Stopped in here for supper to go ...one late afternoon. They were not too busy but it was not the normal time of day for meal time. Food was good. From talking to some of the locals while waiting for the food it sounds like its a good place to eat. Mine was ok, but I didn't do seafood. I... More
