Stopped here for lunch on the way to FL after spending the night in Florence, SC. The fried scallop Po Boy was delicious, but my friend's Flounder sandwich was the star of our meal -- huge and tasty with very light batter. She was amazed...More

I am so glad that I listened to the locals who told me to eat at Fiddler's. I almost missed out because I was skeptical at first. True to low country seafood and service as you can get. Yes, it's fried. No, it's not like...More

Agree with other reviewer very disappointing! Low country boil was tasteless. Shrimp and corn over cooked and sausage bland. My husband had ‘pick 2’ oysters & scallops with fried okra and squash. Tasty oysters and scallops, the okra & squash were good. Would not recommend.

New to the area and looking seafood. The reviews were so good we just had to try. The servers and staff were extremely helpful in choosing from the extensive menu. We both decided on the low county boil with a crab cluster. The crab was...More

They deserve more like a four and a half, and only for the wait time for the food. And it's hard to ding for that because they are making it fresh. Crab soup was great - full of crab chunks not just little morsels. Slightly...More
