Driving to Florida and stayed overnight in Lumberton. Because of high rating we decided to try Pier 41. Service was good, but that is the only good thing I can say. Manager/owner stopped by table for a conversation as meal was served, my salmon was definitely overcooked and overly seasoned and he offered to have it replaced. While waiting I... More

I am very sorry that you had such a bad experience. I also apologize if I overstayed my welcome at you table. I try to visit as many tables as I can to make sure everyone is happy and when you fish came out over cooked I tried to make sure you were satisfied. Please accept my apologies. Steve More

This is a traditional N. C. seafood restaurant that does an excellent job. We have been going for a long time and if we are in Lumberton at lunch time we prioritize a trip here. The jumbo shrimp platter is our favorite. The shrimp are large and well cooked to the point we don't use cocktail or tarter sauce. The... More

We go often and love it a lot. It's one of the reasons we moved back to Lumberton for retirement. Outstanding oysters done true Calabash style and the best crab legs anywhere at a very reasonable price too!!!

Our server was wonderful. The batter on the fish was so light we really enjoyed everything. I'm kinda picky on my coleslaw. Theirs was... More

The food is always great, as well as the service. The owner often walks through to make sure everything is OK. The staff is friendly and very attentive.

If you would like some bad seafood please visit this restaurant. My plate was so greasy that it literally gave me a headache , the waitress had a nasty attitude. I have to say that I have never had any seafood to taste as bad as this place.
