Friendly staff and tasty food

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... read more

Really laid back hangout for locals. Good food,friends and beverages. Buckey, the owner makes everyone feel welcome. Good local seafood prepared with lowcountry flavor.

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

I experienced the cons mentioned. The Shecrab soup was okay and it was lukewarm as mentioned by others. I guess its just the way it comes as I was given it w/i 2 minutes of ordering it. The menu said $6 for the soup, I was asked cup or bowl and I ordered the bowl. It was $10 but no... More

Having never been to Georgetown, I was looking forward to eating some good seafood, and a local recommended The Old Fish House. The hostess was overworked, and her attitude showed it. Our waiter was not much better. The food was definitely not worth the $28 I paid - for lunch. On my next visit to the area, I will definitely... More
