We had lunch here and ordered the fish and chips. It came with hush puppies and the best fries You'll ever eat. It was fresh and really hot. Loved it!! Can't wait to return to try their fish tacos. Total including tax was $14.96. We also bought a lb each of fresh trout, walleye, sea bass,and grouper cheeks for a... More

Enjoyed dinner on a recent Monday evening while visiting friends. It was better than most places we've tried at the beach. From the food to the service and the prices, you won't find a better place anywhere nearby. I don't get why it's not #1. You'll not be disappointed.

BEST hushpuppies in town. Love the Monday crab leg special. Just wish there would be bowls for the soup...kinda weird eating out of a plastic container. LOVE LOVE LOVE the crab and hushpuppies!!!! Jewel City offers A LOT of great seafood......like no other restaurant in Huntington.

Was in West Virginia on a business road trip and got on Tripadvisor to find somewhere to eat. Wanted seafood and this place popped up. Called the number given and got a recording and almost hung up, but apparently they were having phone issues and said to come on down. And we did. So glad we did. The food was... More

While it's a river city, Huntington WV isn't thought of as a seafood kind of place. Jewel City is a life saver-not only wonderful seafood lunches and dinners, but purveyor of all sorts of sea and land food-this is the only place in town to find frog's legs and buffalo, as well as alligator and all sorts of fish and...

This was our first stop but it will be our first,choice if in Huntington again. My mussels in a buttery garlic wine sauce were the best I've had. Chicken gumbo soup with chorizos was perfectly seasoned and just spicy enough to be interesting. I've had deep fried pickle spears before, but these deep fried pickle chips are a-whole-nuther thing -... More

A small, local eatery that has amazing fresh fish they will serve, prepare for take out, or you can purchase to take home and fix yourself. Lots of variety.

We have enjoyed eating here many times and recently did so. The food is excellent, the service is friendly and the restaurant has a home town atmosphere. It's clearly a "fish place." The oysters on the half shell are big and value priced, the lobster bisque and the clam chowder excellent, the grilled shrimp and the salmon all winners. A... More

If atmosphere and decor is your idea of a good restaurant then this place is not your cup of tea. If good reasonably priced food is your idea of a restaurant then you've found home. I had fresh walleye, collard greens, and red beans & rice. And without hesitation will order the same the next time I'm in town. My... More

We eat here whenever we are in Huntington. It has a casual atmosphere with great seafood. My husband had oysters on the half shell and fried grouper. I had jumbo shrimp blackened with beans and rice. We highly recommend this restaurant.
