“bad service ruins the food and the restaurant”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

Had a short haired waitress with star tattoos on her neck. She would forget what we asked for the second she turned around to walk away she forgot are appetizers and left our food in the window until it was cold. Then once we finally got our food She forgot the vinegar and horseradish sauce I asked for. By the time I got the vinegar and horseradish sauce my food was completely cold. It was at that time she remembered the appetizers. The little shrimp tasted like dirt the hush puppies where heavy as rocks. and onion rings from anybody suck cold . the Whitefish might have been alright hot. To make up for her forgetfulness she gave us free dessert . I got key lime pie it tasted like the worst jello store bought ready made pie I ever had and it didn't taste like lime.. Thanks but no thanks

“Great crablegs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012 via mobile

my wife and i ate here 8/4. i had the AYCE crablegs. They were very good. She is not a seafood lover so she had the chicken strips and a salad. she said they were ok, she also said the hushpuppies were among the best she has ever had. atmosphere is nothing special but who cares when the seafood is this good. Will definately return and you should too.

“Best Hush Puppies I ever tasted!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

The Jewel City is truly an icon of Huntington. It has been there "forever" and they have cooking fish, onion rings, and hush puppies down to a science. The portions are large, the food is good, and the service is great. Don't miss this unique and casual restaurant!
