Great local place. Unpretentious but quality food

I think that the other good reviews have described the place well. You order and pay at the counter and they bring you the food. For main dishes you have a choice of a platter that has any or all of 5 seafood items (priced accordingly and very reasonably.) You get a different number of sides... read more

On a trip from FL to NC we stopped at Fiddler's Seafood. It is a clean, cute, unpretentious restaurant. Our family of three had dinner for $32, and were pleased. The place is not fancy (items served in paper baskets after ordering at the counter), but food is fresh and cook well. We enjoyed our evening dinner and would not... More

We stumbled upon Fiddler's by chance (GPS) search on a road trip up I-95, and took a chance. What a great decision that proved to be! This lovely little seafood shack is a rare edition of what a quality, family-oriented dining experience should be. Three generations at work here making home-style southern cooking with charming ambience, at very reasonable prices.... More

This is the best value seafood place I've ever been to. I had the most generous basket of fried oysters I've ever known. The portions were fair if not large. The three of us ordered our own meals, an appetizer to share plus an extra order of hushpuppies for just barely over $30. Everything came piping hot to our table... More

We stopped in for lunch on our way down I-95 to Florida. Great food, clean and bright dining room, and friendly staff. Will stop again.

Best seafood restaurant in Ridgeland. Their seafood baskets were very good just remember to order two extra hush puppies they're great. Nice downtown atmosphere and easy parking.

My husband and I have been traveling to Ridgeland to go hunting for the last 7 years and did not realize this place existed until this past year. We are so sorry we didn't find it sooner when we first started coming up. We have passed the word now to all of the other hunters to try if they haven't.... More

We were traveling through SC on 95 and wanted some fresh seafood. We found this place although it is off the beaten path. A small store front on Main St....didn't look like much, but full of locals. I had scallops and my hubby had crab cakes. What a treat! Sweet, sweet scallops and some of the best crab cakes I've... More

Traveling from Florida to NC and wanted seafood. Looked up TripAdvisor and found this place. Small town laid back great food. Plan to stop again next time we come through the area.
