Still as good as ever

Going to Sea Island Shrimp House on Sunday after church isn't always the best idea. Oh, it is not the food, it is the usual long line waiting to place an order, then wait for a place to sit, while your order is being prepared.

I am in town by myself and looking for some place close to my hotel. I had the fried shrimp which was great and the fried okra fresh and crispy. The staff was very helpful and I would recommend this restaurant to all.

Just okay. People were friendly, place was clean. Food was plain. I ate the shrimp platter with fried, coconut, grilled and smoked shrimp and it all tasted like it was frozen. My wife had the lemon pepper fish and it was tasty but looked like it came from the freezer also. In summary, Judy okay but not bad.

We visit this restaurant about 1 or twice a month. Sea Food is always very good. Have had a few problems with baked potatoes (over cooked or black spots). This is very busy restaurant but service is usually good. This is an order and pick up type restaurant.

Try their seafood platter with fried fish, clams, oysters, crab cake, fries, and cole slaw. The food is good and priced decently.

At my last visit all fish was fried. Baked, BBQ or other lesser fat options not available. Enough said if you care about your health, or simply don't enjoy fried food.

Thanks for joining us! In addition to offering fried seafood we do offer many items grilled or broiled. We hope you would consider giving us another try! I'm sure there is something on the menu you will enjoy! More
