Service was sub par. The waitress wouldn't even stop as she asked if you needed anything! Food was greasy, most of my fries we're burnt on one end, and a couple shrimp still had shells on. This place use to be great, but my last couple visits didn't meat expectations so I think this will be my last visit.

Melanie was a super server. You can't eat all the food but you still can't pass on the desert. All types of seafood, appetizers and deserts.

A lot of food for a very decent price. I ordered six meals, drinks, one kids meal and two slices of cake for only $98. And yes, the food was very good. In the mood for seafood? If you are in Morgantown than look no further. Two thumbs up.

I'm not sure how most people feel about their shrimp and how it's cleaned...but I prefer not to chow down on shellfish poop chutes. Their ranch is good...their clam strips are pretty good...the chicken tenders...average. But I hardly ever go here anymore.

When we visited this place, our booth reeked of urine. We moved, but it was still filthy. We waited 30 mins on fried foods. Food was okay. I was excited to eat here because the one in Asheville, NC is fabulous!! Let's just says they must not be owned by the same people!

Family dining and affordability are hallmarks of this chain. Overlooking the frozen nature of the source foods, there is adequate selection. You can enjoy you food fried or broiled. Veggies versus potatoes. You can easily enjoy a healthy meal here! Tasty and affordable.

Wow a dozen shrimp tasted fresh. An abundance of hush puppies. Good baked potato and slaw. Service was great even made a fresh pot of coffee. Left stuffed. Must return.

The limited menu makes hard to eat healthy here. There are very few broiled choices at lunch. The service varies from great to pretty bad. For fried food it's ok,

We ate here and the food was just ok, not great nor bad. Just ok. Large restaurant for big parties. Not a lot of selection and the steak is way over cooked.

Looking for good fish (and a lot of food) with friendly service? Harbor Inn in Morganton is the place. Of course, the cake is unreal.
