We had stayed in Lumberton at a local hotel and had heard this was a great place. We arrived close to 5:30 pm, the place was starting to get busy. Our meal was served surprisingly fast. 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

Terrie You made my day with this review. I am so glad that you found us and that you enjoyed your dinner so much. The style of breading that we use is very light as you saw and that of course is the secret to the taste. You were very kind to comment about the server also. Those ladies work... 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. We drive from Fayetteville to Lumberton because the food is great and you get a lot for your money. It is worth the drive. As a matter of fact, we are on... More

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.

We recently dined at Pier 41 Seafood in Lumberton, NC. If you want a local neighborhood find this is the place. When we drove up people were standing outside. We knew that was a very good sign. And we were right. The owner Steve was an absolute delight. He treated us like we were family. Such a warm and sincere... More

This reminds me of the old fashioned "fish camps" I went to when I was young. I had the fried flounder and my friend had the fried shrimp. It was delicious. The hush puppies were great too. We both said we would be back when we come to Lumberton again.

The seafood is fresh and always served piping hot straight from the kitchen, Don't plan on ordering any other type of food such as a hamburger steak, chicken tenders, etc. Taste like it came from a frozen patty with instant potatoes and box gravy.

Actually, our goal is to have outstanding products whether it's seafood, chicken, beef or pork. If we ever let you down on anything, please let us know as we can fix most anything in a flash.

We had the pleasure of having dinner for the first time at Pier 41 Seafood as we were passing through Lumberton. It is not a fancy place and everything about our experience was fine. We were seating quickly by the Hostess. Although it was busy, our waitress came over with hot Hush Puppies (very good) and took our drink orders.... More

Stopped just before closing on a Sunday night (20 minutes before). Warm welcome and friendly waitress. Ordered the broiled platter and the fried deluxe platter. Both came out quickly and were very tasty and fresh. Great hushpuppies, too! Huge portions! Highly recommended!
