First time visit for dinner on a Sunday evening and was surprised by how crowded this place can get. A large dining area that could be expanded and you would still have to wait. Basically, good service and great seafood is the magic sauce. Our party really enjoyed the shrimp risotto, swordfish and the crab cake dinner. Everything expertly prepared. Did not try anything from the bar, was happy with the home brewed iced tea. Definitely would return, but would try more of an off time. This place is built for crowds and serious seafood diners. Nothing fancy, just good solid food.

I always try to visit Squids when I visit my father in Chapel Hill: they have a half-price oyster ‘happy hour’ (from 4-6pm) with 2 dozen oysters costing just $19.95.

After gorging on oysters at the bar one can then move on to the adjacent restaurant for a very nice meal - highly recommended!

We eat here for early suppers... of raw oysters! The service is very friendly and the happy hour is a great value.

We arrived about 20 minutes before closing and the server was nice and helpful. We selected seafood kabobs and calamari for the table and portions were large and food was tasty! Great choice in Chapel Hill for seafood!
