Good Servings!

We waited a very short time for seating, as we needed a table for eight people, but the waitress was very accommodating. All the food that was ordered was delicious, right down to the dessert.

Had my usual soup and fried shrimp for lunch. Food was very good. Service was very good. Portions seemed to be smaller suggesting a hidden price increase.

We have been going here for the last year or so since we moved up here. To look at the building you would not imagine there food inside. They specialize in seafood, and my wife does not order seafood anywhere in the area except here. I am not a seafood guy,so I usually order the prime or ribs. Both are... More

I come here for lunch and always get the Fried Grouper sandwich. It is always the same perfectly cooked and fresh. The staff treats you like family!

Balch's always has fresh seafood and great service. The crab cakes are outstanding; the shrimp/lobster chowder is so tasty and I always love the white clam sauce.

Balch's has very fresh fish and decent portions but.................the tomato-based sauces are below average. I have had better jar sauce. If you are going to make Italian type sauces, get a recipe book. make an effort, please! Before I forget, I requested some shaved onion to put on my salad (certainly not an uncommon request) and was told that I... More

They have excellent soups, many varieties of seafood, & also have take out. Their Hush Puppies are delicious. Sometimes a bit too hard & overcooked, but usually perfect in texture & taste!!
