I've been eating this chicken for over the past 30 years and I still love it. They have a great menu and good prices.

Maryland Fried has been around forever - for a reason. It's not pretty, it's not inviting, but the fried chicken, gizzards, livers, and fish can't be beat. My son LOVES their tri-taters. N oh, and the banana pudding is yummy. Great for the river, at home, or eat in... A Beaufort tradition.

This a local restaurant chain that specializes in quick chicken. Most people love the chicken. In my opinion, the chicken is okay, but I think it has the potential to be great when freshly cooked.

While I haven't been to the restaurant in person, I can say that the fried chicken is some of the best I've ever had. My father in-law brought some home for dinner, along with potatoes, gravy, and rolls. Awesome! I can't wait to get back to SC to pig out.

My husband and I were vacationing in Beaufort over the July 4 holiday. After a long day sight seeing we were looking for a quick bite to eat. We happened upon Maryland fried chicken. It was delicious! Best fried chicken we have had in a long time. We are Floridians so the closest we can get to good fried chicken... More

Get keels-you have to ask for it. It's all white meat surrounding a cartiledge keel (no bones, just 2 big chunks of white meat). It is absolutely the best fried chicken. I never get anything but keels to go but my friends like the tri taters and the fried macaroni and cheese bites.

crisp skin fried in clean oil so its not greasy. although they don't advertise it much what i assume to be secret seasoning blend in flour really gives this chicken a delightful flavor. it's small, mostly for take out, but they do have a small dining area inside. i would estimate that the average experience level of staff to be...

Hometown staple. One of a kind taste only found in Beaufort. Locally owned so shop local. Menu includes ribs, chicken and fried fish and shrimp. The lemonade is a must have.

Went there a lot of times and I must say they have the best fried chicken here in Beaufort. Do not expect updated decor in the place... it does not matter because it is clean and they have the best fried chicken. My indicator for a successful restaurant is number of years they are in business and the number of... More
