Be warned This was the worst food ever I can't say the worst I've eaten because I couldn't eat it After three oysters that was it Our party also had mixed grill that was horrible And could not be finished Please save your money The vending machine would have been better Some must not know what "fresh seafood " Means...

Had seen and heard of this place for years when vacationing in the area but had never tried it. Did so this last time and was a little disappointed. Met at the door and seated by "Bob", who said "This is my restaurant" with obvious pride. Atmosphere and food were just OK. All of the tables were large and it... More

Just returned from my third stay on Litchfield Beach and my daughter's second visit. We both love this casual and friendly fish restaurant and seeing Bob, the owner and Kareem, the server at the bar. Bob greets everyone he can, as they arrive, visits with them during their meal and says goodbye to every customer. He shows a genuine love... More

Whenever we visit the South Carolina coast, we try to sample as many different versions of She Crab soup as possible. We grade each one from 1-10. The Fish House earned an 8 mainly because it was a bit too heavy. There was plenty of crab and the sherry topping was flavorful. This restaurant is well worth a visit overall.... More

Overall food was good.., typical fried seafood fare. Bartender waitress was excellent and very attentive despite servicing the whole bar. She Crab soup delicious... Not much else to rave about. Very casual dining, great for small children.

The sign says "not fancy, just fresh" and this is what you get. If your expecting fine dining, you're in the wrong place. If you want good, fresh seafood, you've hit the jackpot! The owner Bob greeted us, checked on us, showed us family pictures, and gave our children pirate hats and "shark" tooth necklaces. He is a class act... More

We dine at the Litchfield Beach Fish House each year at least once on our annual visit to the area. We were a little apprehensive this year because of the number of negative Trip Advisor reviews. But, because we have always had a good experience here, we went anyway. I thought that the food and the service were as good... More
