It's a hole in the wall but great low country boil, only $13.99 and enough for 2 and there's beer! What more can you ask for. We try to go there every time we are in town. Bring your patience, they make it from scratch.

I didn't stay and eat. Didn't look clean. I ordered an iced tea. It tasted exactly like water. It has outdoor seating but the tables looked like they hadn't been cleaned in a while. No wifi.

First time eating here. Late lunch on a Saturday. Not too busy, but definitely not dead. Had the catfish nuggets, slaw and okra. It was very good. The only complaint I have is it took a long time to get our food. I can't imagine...More

On a Sunday night, the hotel restaurant was not open so the lady at the front desk suggested The Fish House. It's not much to look at but oh my goodness, their food is wonderful. I loved their catfish. The side dishes were good and...More
