O.K., this is it - - Absolutely the best seafood on the East Coast. Folks in S.C. and N.C. have been told for years that the seafood in the little coastal community of Calabash, N.C. is the very best and it is very good. But you only have to dine at Pier 41 Seafood in Lumberton, NC to get the very best, and that's a fact. The owner and waitstaff are all very friendly, helpful and professional. Hot hushpuppies & honey butter are served to your table as soon as you are seated and they are scrumptious.
This is a family restaurant with wonderful seafood at great prices. Save me some!

WOW! Thanks for the great review. Our cooking style is patterned after the restaurants in Calabash so when we hear you enjoy our product better than at Calabash, that's a great compliment. Thanks for coming to eat with us and I'm glad that you enjoyed it so much. Take care and thanks again!

Thanks for the great review. I am happy that you enjoyed your experience here at the Pier. The hushpuppies are hard to resist especially when you drag them through the honey butter!!
Have a great day!

Went here because you could order online and was in a hurry and didn't want fast food....I would take a McDonald's chicken sandwich over theirs and fish was horrible. Everyone that says this place is good needs to go to a real restaurant. Wish I could share a pic of the sandwich on here....

I am very sorry that your meal was not up to par. We must have really been off our game and that is a shame because my guys can really put out some good food, as the reviews show. I would love to have another chance to show you what we can do but I know you live out of state. I will also be glad to refund your money as I don't want anyone to pay for something that they were not happy with. Please feel free to contact me to enable me to make things right and I really hope if you come through town agaln that we can have another chance to show you what we can do.

We went to Lumberton to go to Exploration Station and we wanted to do a little bit more than just that on a rainy Sunday. So, we stopped by Pier 41. It was pretty busy, but the wait wasn't more than 10 minutes, which is important to use because we have an extremely active little one who has no tolerance for sitting if he can't eat something. The owner sat us and chatted a little bit, making us feel a little more at home (I'm glad he did that because the place is very much a local spot). Our waitress was very nice and very efficient. The food was really good and I enjoyed the deviled crab very much. This place was definitely some of the best seafood I have had in the area for sure. It comes very close to the down home-cooking I grew up with! I wouldn't mind stopping here again if I am in the area, but I wouldn't make a trip to Lumberton (a 40 minute drive from where we live) just to eat here. I would definitely recommend Pier 41 to anyone finding their way into Lumberton!
