My wife and I came to Ridgeland, SC for a dog show. We stayed in Ridgeland, SC. Tonight we went looking for dinner and stumbled upon this place. If you're not paying attention you'll drive right by it. I saw it out of the corner of my eye and whipped into the lot at the last second. This is the... More

This was our 2nd visit here on our yearly vacation to Hilton Head. It would be safe to say we have now started a tradition! The food is simply spectacular! The service is great and prices reasonable. We love it! You can't go wrong eating here!!!!

We were camped in nearby Yemassee. Found this on TA. WHAT A GOOD EATS! Delicious seafood served by friendly locals. The kids even enjoyed it. Not too far off I95 in town. The address is not correct for the gps but just drive and you will see it in town. I can highly recommend it. Its very low key and... More

Just took my Dad there for his birthday lunch with 2 of my sons. Great place! Friendly people and great food! If you are coming off of I95- pass the fast food places- it's only a couple blocks farther and you will see why we love the South!

This place is friendly, charming and the seafood is so fresh and delicious. A definite place to stop! Connie is a delight - we enjoyed ourselves. Oysters with hot sauce, yum.

We stopped for gas off I-95 and I went to TripAdvisor for good lunch restaurants in the area and Fiddlers came up. We found it easily. Nothing fancy but great seafood. Excellent lunch for the right price. Very friendly, helpful people. Try the lemonade! We will be back!

Fiddlers Seafood Restaurant is in a cute southern town right off of Rte 95. We were heading back to New England from our winter in Florida. We were hungry. TripAdvisors recommended it. Well, it was kind of grungy and basic. You stood in line and ordered from listings on the wall. Pretty much everything was fried. Over cooked and fried.... More

Fiddlers is a must-stop along I-95. Stop to eat here even if you are not hungry. Many Southern seafood restaurants slop out tasteless meals. NOT SO with Fiddlers. The seafood is fresh for starters. They season the breading such that it neither overpowers the seafood nor leaves it tasteless. When fried, it tastes fresh not like a hundred stale dinners... More

Excellent food at a great price. Fried shrimp and scallops were excellent. Hush puppies were huge and delicious. One of us had the "special" that today consisted of 1 pound of crab legs, sausage, corn on the cob and choice of homemade dessert...for just $12.99. Now admittedly the portions besides the crab legs were not that big, but all were... More
