This place was so good! I got the grilled combo platter, the fish was made perfectly! Nothing was over/under done, no weird fishy smell. All the food was delicious, prepared to order, fresh, and the hush puppies were wonderful.

their seafood is as good as, if not better than, what you get in calabash. their prices are much more reasonable than calabash. my wife and I often split a deluxe plate and are well fed for about $20 or less.

If you have a hankering for Southern Style seafood and have not been satisfied your search will end here. As a New Englander we are always skeptical about seafood served in other parts of our country and are usually disappointed. Not so here. We had the broiled platter which contained a whole filet of a mild,white fish a bunch of... More

Passed through headed back to Charlotte from Oak Island. Met Steve, the owner, he is very friendly and passionate about his restaurant. We felt at home with the smiles and noted many regulars as the parking lot was completely full. The food is fresh as most everything is sourced locally whenever possible. Steve comes from the food industry so relationships... More

Driving to Florida and stayed overnight in Lumberton. Because of high rating we decided to try Pier 41. Service was good, but that is the only good thing I can say. Manager/owner stopped by table for a conversation as meal was served, my salmon was definitely overcooked and overly seasoned and he offered to have it replaced. While waiting I... More

This is a traditional N. C. seafood restaurant that does an excellent job. We have been going for a long time and if we are in Lumberton at lunch time we prioritize a trip here. The jumbo shrimp platter is our favorite. The shrimp are large and well cooked to the point we don't use cocktail or tarter sauce. The... More

We go often and love it a lot. It's one of the reasons we moved back to Lumberton for retirement. Outstanding oysters done true Calabash style and the best crab legs anywhere at a very reasonable price too!!!

We had stayed in Lumberton at a local hotel and had heard this was a great place. We arrived close to 5:30 pm, the place was starting to get busy. Our meal was served surprisingly fast.
