You get what you pay for. Good prices, generous pour of wine for reasonable price, amazing soft calamari rings, excellent grouper fingers and sandwiches. Gumbo has large pieces of okra, authentic. Beautiful setting outside if weather permits.

The food was OK, but the service was terrible. Our server forgot about us once the food was served and it took a long time to pay the bill. The amount was understated (they forgot to add our beverages). After that adjustment was made, our bill was then overstated. Partly because it wasn't out by too much, we paid it... More

We had lunch there and the food was excellent! We shared a grouper sandwich and both had a bowl of she crab soup which was outstanding! Good wine too.

After shopping a bit along Georgetown's Front Street, we enjoyed a piece of homemade pecan pie for an afternoon dessert. It was a fun place to observe the parrot, and the ambiance of the old building added to the enjoyment. It was a great dessert, and we would definitely go back for a meal.

The front room of this establishment was downright creepy with it's low-lighting and awkward bathrooms. However, the Harborwalk seating is much more quaint and the service was fantastic. The grouper bites were suggested, and while I feel that the grouper had at one time been frozen, they were ok but the she crab soup was what I would come back... More

everything was good. The staff was very observant even though the place was packed! We waited at the bar for a seat outside. While sitting on their back deck the children was feeding turtles fish and an alligator

Good fresh seafood and friendly service. This is a bar and not anything fancy. Nice selection of appetizers and fresh catch of the day. Prices are reasonable.

The day brought a hint of the approaching fall and it was a perfect day to take lunch on the Harbor Walk in Georgetown, SC. We were hoping the Catch of the Day at the Big Tuna( some people call it the Ole Fish House) was grouper and sure enough it was. It arrived in a lunch sandwich, hot and... More
