Delicious Fish

It is a cute restaurant over looking the Harbor. On a nice day you can sit outside. their fish was delicious and fresh.The service was good and courteous. They have a sheltered veranda with a nice view. Everything is cooked fresh, and this makes a difference.

On Wednesday, April 1st, wife arrived for the first time in Georgetown and this place was recommended to us from a business on the main street for fresh flounder on Wednesdays. After waiting 20 minutes for a seat we were seated on the river side. There were two young gals taking orders. One wore red and our waitress wore pink... More

Sat outside on the deck overlooking the waterway while eating our fried fish sandwiches. Well, it was supposed to be a fried fish sandwich, but it was fried fish fingers on a cold bun. The slaw was good. The beer was cold. The view was nice. Adequate... but a little ho hum.

This restaurant is very laid back with a rustic decor. I had the fried grouper which was quite tasty. Wait staff were friendly and helpful. We sat in the fishing hut outside and it began pouring--with no protection to return to the inside. This could have made the waiters cranky but they were still smiling taking it in stride. The...

The dining room is really nice, with a great view of the river and a Comfortable feel to it but the food and service Was just ok. The wife and l stopped for a late lunch, so that may have had an impact. Both our burgers Were way too rare, and the fries had spent too much time under the... More

This was a great spot to enjoy some Oysters and the sun on a warm Sunday in October. The food was fresh and good and the view along the Boardwalk and out to the river was alive and interesting. Indoor dining also, but on a nice day this is the spot to be. Good food in an informal setting with... More

My family stopped in the waterfront district of Georgetown, on a Saturday - looking for lunch at 2:30 pm. Well... several of our choices close at 2, so we were out of luck. I'm grateful that The Old Fish House was open, and they sat my party of 5 quickly. Problems: we sat in the center doorway (which got cold... More

I ordered 2 Grilled Shrimp Salads. Expecting the cost to be around $13 each, per sign out front. I paid $38.00 for old wilted lettuce & the shrimp were not grilled. I felt like I was inconveniencing them & certainly not welcome. The lady sitting there staring was very odd & not friendly. Bartender was great. Never Again!

We were visiting a relative and ordered takeout for lunch. The she crab soup was watery and very salty with little crabmeat. We ordered grouper fingers which consisted of 4 small pieces of fish. Seafood gumbo was good. The bill for 1 cup of she crab soup, 2 cups of gumbo, 2 grouper fingers and a small salad with chicken... More
