Broiled fish and bacon wrapped scallops very good, fresh vegetables well prepared. Best outdoor seats are reserved for bar customers. Wait staff nice but not very knowledgeable. Went twice. Both times they didn't know nightly specials. Food very good. Nice atmosphere on waterfront at Morehead.

I first noticed a steady crowd dining outside (noticeably more than the other places around the docks) so I went in. Was seated immediately and greeted with recommendations for my lunch. The Tuna Tacos were seared and by far the most tasty tacos I've ever had!! Definitely going back!! Overall; the food was amazing, prices were fair and the service... More

I have eaten here many times and love the food, the service and the atmosphere! The greek salad is so good. The seafood dishes are always a hit. There is something for everyone.

We were looking for a laid back place to get local seafood and saw good reviews for the Red Fish Grill. The restaurant is popular with tourists as it is right on the waterfront, but over all we had a good meal. We went with fried seafood although they have grilled options as well. The scallops were excellent, a nice... More

Nice, but small place to eat. My wife loves this place and we always make a point of eating here one of our nights while staying in the area. Service is good and so is the food.

I had eaten at this restaurant last fall and the seafood was wonderful and fresh. Tonight I was so excited to be back in Morehead City and we went back to Red Fish. I ordered the Trigger Fish special for $ 29.99. I started to eat it and realized then that it was somewhat too salty. I mentioned it to... More

Our group was on vacation and Red Fish Grill was recommended. Our whole experience was very good and would recommend this location if in the area. We got seated with only a small wait, our server was quick to take our drink order. We ordered and soon our food was in front of us. Good service and a great meal.

The usual seafood dishes--nothing special or unusual. Mid range prices. Adequately prepared. Good service. Outdoor seating is nice.

The foods is good. The place is crowded and getting your name on the list and getting your seating is a nightmare. You cannot tell who is going or coming. We had to wait 20 minutes before anyone approached our table. No frozen drinks. I will want until off season to visit again
