If you like deep fried seafood you've come to the right place. You won't leave hungry and you may leave with enough food for lunch too.

The menu is on a big chalkboard at the counter where you place your order. Lots of seafood to choose from - fried, grilled or poached. I had grilled catfish - tasty and perfectly cooked. My wife had a cooked shrimp salad which was very good. Not a fancy place (plastic cutlery) but worth a short detour off the I95... More

My husband an I were traveling on I95 and stopped for lunch. Be aware that the correct address is 7738 W. Main. Shrimp basket and collards were good and my husband enjoyed his catfish. Nothing fancy but the crowd was almost entirely local.

We went by the address given which took us past the place. I went to Google maps which found it. Nothing fancy. You go up and order pay and they bring it to you. We got the special which was flounder fries Cole slaw drink and dessert for 7.99. It was very good and fast. Good for a quick food... More

I had a co worker suggest that I try something from there for lunch. Well to say the least the seafood was great.

Great seafood and hospitality. Wide selection of FRESH seafood my wife and I shared the flounder basket and fried shrimp and it was delicious. Located in a small downtown area easy parking and located less than a mile off the interstate. Great seafood.

We ate at Fiddler's because it was close to our hotel. It had been a long day and we didn't want to drive the 40 minutes back in to Beaufort for dinner. It has such great reviews and we were looking for seafood so we thought we would give it a try. The restaurant reminded me of a family diner... More

Our favorites here are the very tender ribeye and creek shrimp basket. Both meals come with plenty and could possibly be shared. And don't forget the lemonade! Fresh, local seafood makes for the best dinner, try it broiled or fried-yum.

I had the flounder and my date had the catfish. They were both good. But the catfish was excellent. The collard greens had good flavor, but we're cooked too long. The dirty rice was good too. The decor is cute. It's worth the trip if you're in the area.
