Consistently good seafood. Quick service. Fish and chips is a staple that doesn't disappoint. The shrimp platter is a full meal. Inexpensive but the quality and quantity is first class

The best place around for fried flounder, hush puppies and fries! They have all the seafood favorites. The portions are generous and you leave with your craving satisfied. I can't wait to also try the crab legs. My husband loves for fried shrimp and Cole slaw. Our favorite place in town!

I stopped there with my wife and her brother ( all from Syracuse) and we thoroughly enjoyed the Haddock fish plate. We will be returning for the Hoffman hotdogs and coneys

The seafood plates are always hit and fresh. Sometimes the portion size varies for some reason. However the food is always good and it's always busy.

Great fried fish, always consistent, light batter for awesome whitefish, never bones! Gumbo, Chowder are great. Hush puppies are perfect, and so are the fries! Fish sandwich features fish twice the size of bun! Hoffman hot dogs (Syracuse, NY classic) are great! Ice cream too. Service always cheerful and quick. Great find here in Apex, now with a drive-thru!

If you like fried fish.. This is the place. I haven't had a bad experience yet. I get either the fish sandwich or popcorn shrimp platter for lunch. The fish sandwich is huge! You get a whole fillet of fish! The shrimp platter is the same. Bring your appetite because you won't go hungry here!

The Best Seafood in the triangle area. The food is cooked fresh and absolutely delicious! The desserts are tasty too! The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is very comforting. The jumbo shrimp are amazing and so is the fried fish!
