I thought I was in Key West

I had lunch here while in town for business and it was as good as any place on the beach. I had the grilled tuna lunch with red beans and rice and rosemary potatoes. Great value too. Lunch was 15.50 and the portion was perfect. Only one complaint, they didn't offer desert.

I've been to Jewel City a few times over the years. I must say I've never been disappointed. If you're looking for Great atmosphere and fancy restaurants, then this is NOT your place. Very plain looking but the food is very good at a reasonable price. There are other seafood places in Huntington that are higher priced but none that... More

This little seafood joint would hold it's own even in Key West......the whitefish sandwiches are fine as are the more exotic seafood on the menu; I mean where else in this two horse town can you find sea bass, lobster, crab legs, or swordfish. I advise ingesting a bit of Pepto before(or after) you indulge in the fried oysters-----(sorry Joe).... More

Jewel City Seafood isn't fancy or formal but it has the freshest seafood in the area. The staff is very friendly, the owner is almost always on hand to chat about the best fish of the day. It has a great casual beach feel. They can get busy at times but the service is always excellent.

Always enjoy a trip to Jewel City! They have a great selection of fish and other sea foods. Restaurant is quite small and there is usually a good wait time. Can be expensive if you get the higher dollar items. Food is always quite tasty!

The food and prices were very good for the area. The service was a little slow and the dining area could use some cleaning...maybe even some updating. Overall, it was a good experience.

We went here after talking with the front desk folks at our hotel. We were stunned. the place was packed, the food was great. We had mushrooms stuffed with shrimp and crab...fantastic. Then we each had the sampler platter, three kinds of seafood. We could have done with two types for each. An embarrassing amount of really really nicely done... More

The only thing missing is the ocean in place of the street outside! Other than that you might think that you were at beach. Great seafood for eat in or to take home and cook yourself. We often so both.

It's not like the seafood at the beach, but then we weren't expecting that in a small town in West Virginia. Fresh fish, house made soups and sides, very casual, a good place to stop while traveling through.

This place has great seafood. Always fresh and prepared just about anyway you like it. It's certainly casual. Friendly service.The prices are very reasonable for the quantity and quality of food. Always busy on the weekends. I always get the blackened Tilapia with the red potatoes, and red beans and rice. Excellent every time. The only drawback is you smell... More
