Croaker's Spot is what I would call a gourmet Soul Food restaurant! A Seafood lovers paradise. Usually there is a wait to get in but the food is outstanding. Portions are huge which makes the price worth it. You essentially get enough for two meals unless you still eat like a starving teenage male athlete! Parking is on the street.... More

As usual great food and wonderful service. The food is so good from the fish to the greens and mac and cheese. Don't forget the cornbread. I love the portions because I'm able to eat there and have some the next day. .

In town to visit our son and his wife and we wanted to take them out to dinner. They suggested Croaker's Spot and we arrived around 8 PM on a cool and rainy night. Our server, who was great, was Shirl. The four of us ordered, fried shrimp, fired oysters, sautéed chicken breasts and a shrimp and green pepper saute.... More

After growing up on the Chesapeake Bay and traveling all over the world, I know good seafood, and this is it! Try it all because you won't be disappointed with anything.

This is some of the most amazing seafood I've had in my life! I ordered the shrimp and grits and an order of crab cakes, my husband ordered the seafood pasta, my mother & brother had the seafood platters, and my sister-in-law & stepfather had the stuffed talapia... the crab cakes were a little on the small side but they...

This was our first visit to Croaker's Spot and it won't be our last. Attica was our server and was a delight! We had the seafood pasta and the fried shrimp dinner - with cheese grits to die for. Bread pudding for desert was so good. Everything tasted perfect, cannot say enough good things. Go there and see for yourself!
