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.

Horrible seating. Your choices are by a bird cage in a small smokey room or outside where you cant see over the railing. My kids ate hamburgers which were good. I paid $25 for 10 pieces of fried shrimp and some frozen fries. My wife got chicken and was told they didn't have BBQ sauce. My bill was $65 and... More

I met a friend for drinks and a hors d'oeuvres and it was really nice with the outdoor seating -- even though it was warm, the breeze coming off the water felt good. The service was good, the atmosphere was fantastic, the prices were very reasonable and the crab soup was amazing. The other food I tried was good enough.... More

We waited an hour for two fryed fish sandwiches and a crabcake (which we didnt even get!) It was frustrating to see tables next to us eat, pay, get seated, and eat.

We had finished touring and wanted some great seafood in a pleasant setting. We found the right place. The Old Fish House is it! First, we stopped and talked with Sassy, a beautiful Macaw. Then we enjoyed grouper sandwiches while sitting out on the deck. The meal was very good (served with fries and slaw) and we had a nice... More

Figured it was a local place we might get some southern charm. What we got was a cold lunch, wrong bill amount, and attitude from the owners daughter. Not recommended.

The atmosphere is that of a rustic seafood shack and not your place if you are looking for a more refined dinning experience. However, if you enjoy dining on fresh well prepared seafood this is our place! She crab soup is excellent!

First time in Georgetown and hit a home run. This place is on the water and sells great drinks and food with a view to die for..... inside or out . We ordered food and drinks and the service was fast and friendly and everything was casual and fun. Will be back for more.

Pricey for the type of food. I loved the view but for the money I'll cross the street on my next visit and try one of the other cafes.
