Small town atmosphere is friendly and cozy, with a genius in the kitchen. The freshest seafood anywhere is prepared with care and precision. It's not a fancy place, but very much worth the trip if you're not a local. Everything is prepared after you order, but service is amazingly fast, even during a busy lunch. Options include fried, grilled, steamed... More

If you are a seafood lover, Fiddlers is the place for you. Seafood is local and fresh. Hamburgers are the best in town.

Great place to go for fried or steamed seafood. They also have wonderful sides and desserts. If someone in your party doesn't want seafood, they have other options. I really love their fried shrimp and steamed snow crabs!! I stopped in the other day just to get a large lemonade because it's the best around. Do yourself a favor if... More

This is a small town restaurant with BIG flavors. The seafood comes from the owners shrimp boat. Very fresh. Great grilled fish. Wonderful lemonade.

One of the best seafood and cooks in the low country. Fresh seafood. They run a separate seafood market just behind the restaurant, where they catch their own. There's nothing much to see in this town, but the restaurant alone is definitely worth the trip!

It isn't fancy. You order at the counter they bring the food to your table. They have a good variety of seafood. My wife and I both had the flounder and shrimp.It was excellent. Very fresh and cooked to perfection. A very good cole slaw and the condiments appeared to be homemade. The price was very reasonable. We will come... More

Stopped by on way from Northeast back to Florida. Excellent good. Sizeable portions. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Will definitely stop again. Easy to find, just a couple of minutes of highway.

Homemade tartar, homemade shrimp sauce, and homemade sweet sauce. All really good! I had the "pick all" seafood platter, with whiting, clams, scallops and shrimp. Included two sides, I chose a sweet potato and a salad. For 20 bucks, it was awesome! Good for two :-)

Quaint little downtown restaurant. Lotsa touristy 'Go Fishin' plaques everywhere. Menu on the wall...behind the young girl at the register more interested in her iphone than the customer. The food arrived 25 minutes after we ordered...with no condiments...cocktail sauce, tarter sauce, etc. Requested extra plates and had to go back to the young girl at the register...still on her iphone....
