Nothing bad but nothing great either

Used to go here when I was a kid because it was my dad's favorite restaurant. Went back a few weekends ago and while the food was pretty good, it was really nothing to get excited about. View out the windows was nice, overlooking the creek and reeds... inside the dining room looks like it hasn't... read more

Yes, the view is nice but $34 for scallops seems a bit much. And my $23 steak was half gristle and fat. The hush puppies are good, I will say, and a nice free appetizer. I wasn't impressed with the green beans - tasted right from the can. And my roll was not even worth it. And the fact that... More

I'm not sure why anyone would give this place anything less than a 5 star rating. The food is delicious, the view is amazing and the staff is first class. I've eaten here over the years and have tried pretty much everything on the menu and not one item was sub par. We dined here on May 1st and had... More

Great place for steamed oysters. They brought out a wash tub full and they were delicious. Also had fried oysters as well. The batter on the oyster made excellent eating.

Waited an hour for cold food at $25 a person. Complained to server and manager never came by or discounted ticket. Finally located manager on duty at the bar drinking and she proceeded to argue that the service and wait time wasn't bad. Grandparents have been dining there for almost 50 years and we will never be back.

It's always been a family tradition to stop at Nance's for a meal. It's a fairly dependable old style fish camp type of place. Good location right on the water. Food is generally dependable except my "flounder" didn't seem to be flounder this time even though I paid an up charge-I didn't want talapia at a seaside place where local... More

DON'T GO!!! I don't typically write reviews but I can't sleep knowing people might go here. Nance's represents everything wrong in the world...a once good place gone bad!

I rarely give a lousy review and it really pains me to do it this time. Been eating here since '74. Good: Service was excellent, hushpuppies good as always, and steamed clams just right. We didn't have steamed oysters this time but all the tables that had them looked good. Lousy: the flounder itself quality was good but they now... More

We visit MB now for the last four years and make Nance's one of our stops. Not disapointed at all, seafood platter was excellent. Tons of food, and tasty. Will visit ba again before we leave
