Sometimes you just want a plateful of fried oysters. This is the place to go. The building is plain, the lighting is fluorescent, the tables and chairs aren't fancy, but the facility is clean, the staff is friendly, and the food is great.

My family and I ate here while traveling through. We arrived around 1:30 with the after church crowd. Although there was a wait it didn't take long. We ordered a broiled platter, small fried platter, shrimp fettuccini alfredo and a cheesesteak. By the time we were seated about 1/4 of the crowd had left. We waited over 20 minutes for... More

Michelle I am really sorry that we did not meet your expectations today. Although we get very busy at times, we work very hard to treat every person and every meal with the greatest of care. We obviously let you down and I am sorry for that. As you can read by the other reviews, that is not our norm.... More

It was time for some good seafood so my wife called 2 other couples and we met here for Friday dinner. As always, the Calabash style seafood was as delicious as any you might enjoy at the coast. Prices are reasonable, servings are ample, and the waitresses are always friendly. Be aware that this is a popular place so it... More

Wonderful seafood (best Calabash style), generous portions, great hush puppies and honey butter to nibble until entree arrives (soon), quick service, very reasonable cost, handicapped accessible, and friendly staff all help make this a special, 'always' stop when traveling from Pennsylvania to Florida and back. Be careful in planning travel time as they are closed Monday and Tuesday - we... More

A friend told us about Pier 41 so we decided to stop in our way home from Wilmington. If you're looking for fantastic food at an affordable price with fast and friendly service then it's well worth checking out. I had the "small" fried combo which was anything but small. It was a huge portion perfectly fried to a golden... More

Pier 41 Seafood is a hopping place, service is friendly and fast, and the food is delicious and generous in portions. For groups, you can have a family-style dinner with endless platters of flounder, shrimp, deviled crab, along with BBQ chicken and pork plus tasty side dishes...and, of course, tasty hushpuppies to start you meal. Great place for groups, families,... More

We were driving through the day before Easter headed home from Georgia. We like to avoid chain restaurants and picked Pier 41 based on it's TripAdvisor ratings. This is a small town, the decor and outside appearance are misleading and do not reflect the service and food quality inside. My husband had fried oysters and I had broiled oysters. We... More
