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.

Fiddler's Seafood Restaurant reminds one of what we routinely had during vacations to the beach when I was a kid during the 1980's... A fun atmosphere, a local beachy vibe, and owner-operators who are in business because they enjoy good people and good food over the commercial rubber-stamping we see with other restaurants who have the t-shirt but have lost...

Clean and friendly atmosphere with a down home country feel. Food is delicious and made fresh to order. Worth the wait if your in the area. They don't accept American Express.

We stopped at this place due to other reviews. It is a small restaurant but the town is small, so not much need for any more space than they provided. I had the catfish basket. The portion was good and tasted just great for a small restaurant. Locals streamed in and out which indicated to me they have a strong... More
