Oysters are tiny. I’ve had better fried shrimp at Captain D’s. Worst crab cake we have ever tasted. What balanced this to average were the cheese grits, collards and conch fritters. Those items were worth the visit.

We've had lunch and dinner here and both were delicious. Our servers were friendly and efficient. The blackened mahi mahi and tuna were perfectly seasoned, and the fried shrimp was lightly battered and tasty! The portions are plentiful so we always have leftovers to bring...home. We will return!More

First visit. Great service. Started with the conch fritters. Above average. Trio of tuna filet, Virginia oysters, and fried catfish. The tuna was above average but not excellent. The catfish was standard. The oysters were tasty. They served the sweet potato fries with a marshmallow...fluff dipping sauce. A first, and it added sweetness. The fries were a bit overdone on this visit.More

According to Palmetto Priority, seal of approval from Aiken , for the Covid issue, there are many factors that must be met. I experienced this other day. This is required for the Palmetto Priority, seal of excellence. But this was not observed. All employees were...not wearing a face covering, only the servers when serving the food.. Employees behind the bar area, perhaps had a mask, but was pulled down, so they could chat with others. If one has a mask on their head/neck area, they should be wearing it over nose and mouth. Otherwise don't wear it. There may be safety issues wearing a mask, depending on job. But for the current issues of Covid, just wear any kind of face covering if not having direct customer contact, for visual to customers. Servers should have a approved face coverings, to which customers feel comfortable being inside. If you wish to keep customers , just follow quidelines for covid. Sure there are exceptions to wearing a mask, but if the general public doesn't view it positively, you have lost a customer.More

We were going to Ridge Spring for peaches & wanted to eat somewhere & saw this in Aiken. Waiter was good. She crab soup had minimal crab meat & highly spiced...Cajun-like. It was OK. Clam chowder was GOOD! Disappointed in conch fritters. Grouper bites were...OK. We were there for a late lunch on a Wednesday.More

We had a perfect meal! The seafood platter is a great combo. Each item was cooked perfectly. Thank you can’t wait to come again.

Our first time here. Delicious! Everything was served hot and with good service. The best hush puppies I’ve had in years.

A great local seafood restaurant. Excellent fish and grits, fish tacos and fish sandwiches. I am certain the other items are as fresh and tasty as the dishes we have eaten.

This is our second only outing to a restaraunt since the pandemic began (and our first time at Aiken Fish House) and must say what a nice experience. The distancing and capacity seemed to be followed and we felt comfortable about that. The employees were...super friendly and the service itself was spot on with timing and accuracy. I am originally from the east coast and this was “real” seafood. Will definitely eat here again.More

Unfortunately our experience this time was less than enjoyable. For a fish house, you want to be able to enjoy fish that tastes like fish; granted the blackened are good, but the fried is heart stopping and tasteless (unless you like flour & water deep...fried in lard). Considering this country is facing an obesity epidemic, one would think restaurants would consider amending their menus to help combat this. And upon leaving, our clothes smelled like fried food. We will not be returning.More
