I like the food and it's not normally busy at this location. I would eat here again if I had coupons or a promotion since it is a little pricy.

This restaurant is the only fast food seafood specialty restaurant in town. They are an average operation with the traditional, heavily battered and oily fried fish, fried shrimp, french fries, hush puppies, cole slaw and other sides. The do also offer broiled selections that are healthier and not greasy, and sides like green beans, fried okra, and corn of the... More

We could not eat as the grease smelled rancid. Also there was the "not so fresh" fish smell. I have had delicious fish at other Long John Silvers.

It's with mixed emotions I give this review, I wish I could give this place a 5 but the fact is, it needs some TLC, the food and the service is always very good, but it needs some serious work done, the A/C units leak and make noise, the place just needs to be updated, but again, the food and...

Where do I begin. I have eaten here twice. Each time I had to ask for a manager. Each time is because the food does not come out as advertised. They are significantly smaller in size than advertised. Most recent was Lobster Bites. More like chewing a peanut shell. I was given a complimentary dinner voucher which I did not... More

I stopped in after the dinner rush and was pleased with the quality of the food. The fish was prepared as soon as I placed my order, nothing had been sitting under a heat lamp. They delivered our meals hot and fresh and exactly as ordered. The dining room is typical fast food tables and chairs with self-service on drink... More

We went through the drive-through at around 6:30 PM on a Friday. There was a line, but I assumed it would move pretty quickly as rush hour was over. I waited 20 minutes in that line. And I couldn't escape because there was a curb/shrubbery following the drive in line. When I got to the window, I asked if 20... More

LJS has an excellent product that is I guess a throwback to the days when eating unhealthy was OK. Their fish is battered and deep fired and is like no other fried fish in the area. For fast food fish and hushpuppies its great.

Stop in at12:00 and sat in the drive through for 8 min and no one ever ask to take my order! They opened at 10:00! There was several employees standing out front when we pulled up so I know they were there

I absolutely love, love, love LJS. but today, not only did it take 30 minutes to get my order in my mouth.....but I was wondering how handling money, picking up something off the ground, and wiping your nose with your hand then going to fix my food without washing your hands is sanitary? this wasn't one of the underpaid employees....
