Great seafood

Food is always delicious, you just have to wait until everyone has arrived to be seated. That sometimes can be a pain especially during lunch & you have a big group. This usually makes us choose another place to eat as we are not always sure everyone is going to make it.

Down by the river is no exaggeration The river seems to almost runs under the edge of the building. I love to watch the fish jump and the birds that come to enjoy the river. There are small rapids and the river is constantly moving. On a warm day you can sit out on the deck and enjoy the outdoor... More

Absolutely one fantastic seafood place to eat at. Wonderful atmosphere, quick service (was there on a Monday), and THE best tasting seafood ever ! ! ! Took my wife & my parents & definitely would go again when in that area. You need to try this place out. You'll love it.

Excellent food and service. Very relaxing atmosphere. They have something for everyone: tilapia, cat fish, hush puppies, steak, shrimp, gumbo....just to list a few items. Excellent selection of desserts. I highly recommend this Restaurant.

All the employees were very careful and read all the product labels to ensure our sons safety with his food allergies.

My wife & I love eating three. The food is always great. Never had a bad meal. My wife's family in NC love coming here to eat. The people that work there do a really good job. They always are willing to please. We try to eat there at least once a month. We are even planning on eating there... More

I enjoyed a late lunch here recently on a cold crisp day. I was practically the only diner at the time, which usually isn't a good sign, but considering that it was after 3:00 PM, I wasn't alarmed. I chose to sit in the dining area adjoining the riverfront, and I'm glad I did. The view of the river, which... More

do you know how hard it is to get properly cooked oysters this far from the coast. ? They're usually just cooked to gone so you get just oyster flavored breading. Here they are just right.
