I had been looking forward to eating at Shem Creek Bar and Grill for days. It did not disappoint! The seafood is just excellent! The atmosphere of the place is really neat..just a very enjoyable place to spend an evening. I will return!! Good service to boot!

We have eaten a few times over many years and the food has always been very good and tastes very fresh. The staff is very friendly and the place is somewhat of a local icon. Unfortunately the place is really showing wear and tear and could use a good facelift focused on keeping its charm.

Upon being seated first thing tarter sauce was left on table. Questioned server and was told because it was cloudy ok to leave out. Was brought a new one. Unfortunately warm also. Order taken waited 45 minutes for food. Ordered fried pick two. Shrimp ok , fish mushy, potatoes cold and tasted like instant, cole slaw warm and tasted old. Only good thing was appetizer of hush puppy's. what a disappointing experience. Yuk

My family went here recently for the first time for dinner. There is a lot of construction next to the restaurant so parking is difficult. We arrived and asked to sit inside since it was very hot outside but next to windows so we could see the creek view. We were sat in a room with booths that overlooked another enclosed dining room. At the end of this room are some tables that have windows next to the tables with a better view. We were sat in a booth overlooking other diners with the creek view a distance aways. This area of Shem Creek is the quieter area of the creek with little activity. Our waiter was prompt and friendly enough. We ordered cocktails and beer and ordered our dinners...the seafood spectacular and what we thought was a 1/2 pound cold shrimp with cocktail sauce and a basket of hushpuppies, since there isn't any bread or hushpuppies brought to the tables to get you started. It turned out that the shrimp was steamed and brought in a basket with no sauce, lemon, etc., which was disappointing. The hushpuppies were fine. The seafood spectacular we were expecting, being at the source of local seafood, was mahi mahi, a few scallops and a few shrimp all covered with an undistinguishable sauce on all of the seafood which totally disguised the taste of each item. I ordered the vegetable for one of my sides and it was four green beans and two large florets of broccoli which were barely steamed and unable to be cut with the "knife" provided...the knife being on the verge of disposable silverware with no serrated edge at all. The room had several ceiling fans but the one next to us wasn't on and there was no air conditioning apparent in the dining room so it was actually hotter to sit in this room than it would have been to sit outside with a chance of a breeze....very uncomfortable. The dinner felt like a seafood chain restaurant with no decor, view, or good quality seafood. Overall, extremely disappointing dining experience.

If you're looking for a kitschy dive atmosphere to get cheap seafood and a drink, this is certainly the place to be. We went for a late lunch, but I can imagine it's super busy at night. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. Between the two of us we got mahi mahi, shrimp, crabcakes and hushpuppies, they were all okay, but you get what you pay for. The view of the creek is nice and if you're looking to kill some time at night without breaking the bank, I'd bet this is a good bar in the area.
