Old Fish house was once a great place to meet and eat. No more, poor food at high over priced with just average service. Too many other good selections in Georgetown to waste your time here.

Located about half way between Myrtle Beach and Charleston, Georgetown is a sleepy costal town with a wonderful historic district and a great restaurant. The fresh seafood were great. We had a soup that they called gumbo but it is not like the gumbo you get in Louisiana. This gumbo has a tomato base and is out of the world.... More

The setting of this restaurant is lovely. If weather permits, sitting outside would be a great option - right on the water. Service was fine. The food was ok - nothing to write home about.

The nice view and people watching were the best thing about this restaurant. We had seafood and it was only O.K. Next time will go for drinks and appetizers only. Staff was attentive and nice. Décor a little worn and boring. Just an O.K. restaurant.

My wife and I along with several friends and family members ate lunch here on Tuesday August 12. Our friends have eaten here before and really like it. It looks a little care worn and could use some updating but some people may find the atmosphere part of its charm. We all had various seafood items, some fried and some... More

A group of us went for drinks and appetizers. We all agreed the appetizers were just okay, but the staff and service were terrific. Would go again for this reason, and stick to the cocktails.

Fresh fish, fast service, great location - what else could you want? Was there for lunch as we were passing through Georgetown. The crab dip was about the best I have ever had. Portions are not huge, but plenty for lunch. Note this is a dockside restaurant with mostly outside dining and very casual, but the view and the food... More

Pricey for some things, but good. One of only a couple of places open on Sunday. 20 minute wait at about 1:00 pm. Service was slow, but they make a great Bloody Mary.
