The food was ok, Isabel the server was great, the price was good but JD's down the road is a lot better! I got a mushroom burger and it was pretty good. Hubby got the softshell crab Po boy and said it was ok but was deep fried. He grew up on the Chesapeake bay and says true softshell craps... More

Not the fanciest looking place but if you want great food and great prices, this is the place to go.Small space so go early, but wonderful food, friendly staff and good prices. The best seafood we had.

They had a surprising number of choices, but I went with basic fried shrimp and fried oysters, and they did not disappoint. I also had the crab patty, and it was okay, but not as tasty as the fried food. Service was quick and friendly. It appeared to me that there were lots of local regulars here, as they seemed... More

Fantastic fried seafood and super burgers. Good people. Usually crowded so plan your meal accordingly. They are supposed to have great steaks as well, but I have never tried one.

Schempy's has great seafood and not too pricey. You can bring BYOB. We brought wine and they supplied the glasses. It is rather small inside. Get there early in the evening to beat the crowd on weekends.

This is a very nice place to eat. They had really good food and service at a reasonable cost. The wife and boys had to try the frog legs. BYOB was a nice touch and having a liquor store right next store makes that easy. By the way if you by from next store Schemp's will ice it down for... More

Food was terrible and overpriced, server was not polite at all. Was very surprised after reading the reviews, only thing I can figure was that I caught them on a bad day.

Let me say first that our food was delicious. I had red snapper, blackened, with grilled vegetables. My husband had the snapper fried, also with grilled vegetables. Our fish was cooked perfectly and the portions were large. My husband would probably have preferred French fries, but he was not asked; I had ordered grilled veggies and I guess it was... More

I loved my fried crab poorboy. I have lived in New Orleans and I was impressed, very fresh. The tomatoes were very tasty, the crab tasted like it was just out of the gulf and the french roll was light and flaky. The price was excellent under $10. I would definetely go back. One thing it is BYOB, however there... More
