HEADS UP!!

The Service and She Crab Soup was EXCELLENT! We ordered the Seafood Sampler as our meal. Unfortunately that was Not Great:( The food seemed fresh and was fried well not too much flour but, it was just that...No Seasoning At All!

Third year I have made the golf trip to Pawley's Island, third year I have eaten at the Fish House. A good menu selection and fast service, as reasonably priced as any other restaurant in the area

We had the grilled mixed grill: flounder, scallops and shrimp. It was excellent! I asked the server for a not-so "fishy" fish and she recommended the flounder. I LOVED it! Others in our party had the gumbo, which was awesome, and the crab cakes, which were also very good! The owner came by and greeted us, and when they heard... More

Do not let the outside deter you from trying. Had a very good meal. We had a party of 12 and all were pleased. Owners greet you at the door. The night we were there they were having some kind of staffing problem in the kitchen so the service was a little slow. owners were extremely apologetic. Local caught fish... More

This seafood restaurant is a locals place. The owners are there to greet you. Service is impeccable. The food is very good and you will not be disappointed. The walls have all types of local flavor to look at while you done. The great news is they take reservations which is unusual for this area.a

Must like fried food. Nothing special. The Cajun grilled shrimp were good but the sides were not. Baked potatoes were hard, cold, small served with cheap sour cream and butter and cost extra-guess that's because they weren't fried. Hush puppies were good but greasy. If you're looking for fresh local seafood, go somewhere else. Service was good but not friendly.... More

I've heard this restaurant can be really hit or miss and we must have hit a 'miss' night. I struggled to find something that wasn't deep fried and might be fresh. The side salad was a simple salad with iceberg lettuce. The shrimp and grits I ordered had an awful, slimy sauce on top that really ruined the grits. And... More

Having come to this beach area with friends who have are regulars to the area for many many years we were eager to visit all the places that have been proven winners. The great restaurants and places whether on or off the beaten path. Sadly, some of our meals here were a major disappointment. Out of courtesy, I bit my... More

This is not a fancy place, but the food is real good. If you don't like fried and/or broiled seafood in it's basic form, don't go here. I love the "Cajun fried". It's not really spicy, it's the style of breading. The creek shrimp are the best in the area. Very easy to substitute the side dishes that come with... More

The food was ok. But we like our fish grilled. That really didn't seem the best option at this restaurant. I think it would have been better if we would have ordered it fried. Either way I don't think I'll be going back. It was a very rundown restaurant.
