...but in a really really good way! We went there because it's rated #1 on TripAdvisor. So we expected a seafood restaurant that looked like one. It doesn't. It's a big simply furnished space that resembles a cafeteria...filled with people who were clearly enjoying their food! And when our food came, so did we! Our friendly waitress immediately brought a... More

Picked up our kids from camp in NC and saw this restaurant on Trip Advisor. The food was awesome!!! The place was very crowded (weekend night) but the wait was short - staff was very friendly and efficient. The basket of hush puppies was fabulous and even pleased three picky kids. Our kids enjoyed it so much they actually wanted... More

Me and my husband had not eaten here in a long time. Decided we wanted seafood without traveling to far and had a wonderful meal. Plenty of food and low prices. Couldn't eat all of the food on my plate. The owner was going around talking to customers and the staff was very friendly. We will be eating here again... More

Had dinner on Friday night with a family group of 9 that included a toddler. The food was pretty good and the price was very affordable a deluxe seafood plate with 5 items of your choice was about $14.00. The service was good and the manager came by to check on us. It was very crowded and nothing fancy but... More

Calabash-style seafood is very popular but it's hard to find a place where it's not greasy. Pier 41 does a good job, better than most! We will be back.

Steve R, Owner at Pier 41 Seafood, responded to this review

Thanks for the great review. I agree that greasy seafood is not good and we work very hard to keep the oil in the fryer and not on your plate. When ever you do fry seafood though, there will always be some oil that comes with it. You may want to try our broiled seafood as the guys do a... More

I stopped at the Pier 41 for a bite to eat on a business trip to Lumberton. It is conveniently located with plenty of parking. The staff was very friendly and the seafood very good. I tried a seafood platter of friend oysters, clam strips, shrimp, deviled crab and hush puppies. Everything was cooked just right and very delicious. My... More

My daughter and I dined here recently. The fried shrimp were delicious. They gave us both so many shrimp on our plates we had enough to take home for lunch the next day. Mmmmmm.......and the hush puppies. Don't ask for them early or you will eat so many you won't have room for your meal. 😊

Ellen I am very happy that you and your daughter enjoyed your dinner here at the Pier so much. The shrimp are really good as we use only Gulf Shrimp. You are also a quick learner on the hushpuppies, too. They are so tasty that many people wish they had stopped eating them sooner to save room for their dinner!... More
