Awesome place to eat, the receptionist, Wondella,was professional and courteous. The food was hot and tasty and prepared. The host was great and prepared a wonderful area for my family. I most certainly would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Lumberton that desires to eat some good seafood.

Wow, what a great review. Thanks for the shout out for Wondella. She takes all of our carryout orders and handles the phone on Friday and Saturday nights and does an awesome job. It make us very proud to see our guests enjoy their dinner and leave smiling. Please come see us again the next time you are in Lumberton. More

After seeing the reviews here, we had to see for ourselves. On our way down to Florida last September it was a great stop for dinner. We hit at the right time that we didn't have a wait. Food was really good and prices were great.

Pat Thank you very much for the great review. I am glad that we lived up to the reviews that brought you in to check us out. Most of our travelers come by way of Tripadvisor as we are not visible from the interstate. Your review helps out and we appreciate it. More

If you want the best "Calabash" style seafood without the beach this is the place to come! I've been eating here since it opened and had hundreds of meals and it's alway tasty, service is great and the atmosphere is family friendly.

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.

My friend from Chicago I am glad that you enjoyed your dinner here so much. The Broiled Platters are very good even though we Southerners love our fried seafood! The hush puppies are everyone's favorite whether they are eating broiled or fried. We hope you come see us again when you are coming through Lumberton. More

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
