I have eaten here several times before but today's visit was a train wreck. I ordered the fish sandwich and my wife ordered the fried shrimp dinner. My fish sandwich was raw - yuck! My wife received about a dozen fried shrimp and a small side of black beans but I expected much more for the $19 price tag. I... More

Georgetown is a regular stop for us on our way from Pawley's Island to home. Decided to try Big Tuna on a Sunday afternoon. Picked up the TIMES and found a spot outside on the deck overlooking the river and some really nice yachts. A brew, a burger, my newspaper and a sunny day made for a perfect break. Great... More

A usual stop when I visit family in Georgetown. Great atmosphere and views of the river. Food consistent and good. Something for everyone. Mama had the crab ball sandwich. I had a grouper sandwich. Chicken fingers for the kids and a huge chicken salad also. Ate in their new dining room. Plenty of room for a large family group.

Dreamy She Crab soup and delicious dessert of the day which was 12 layer caramel cake. Good atmosphere and attentive service in a dreary afternoon.

We arrived for our visit to Georgetown at lunch time, and while walking on the Harborwalk, stopped in to Big Tuna. We had steamed clams, and I had an Oyster Po-Boy that had nice fresh, crisp oysters. During our weekend stay there, we were back for drinks often. The place had a nice atmosphere, and very pleasant wait staff.

I sat outside, with a lovely view. Both days I had the oyster. It was served exactly as I asked as were the fries. They also have the most unusual slaw I have ever had. The first day I ordered a cosmo, it was ice cold and prepared well, the second day I had a glass of house wine that... More
