The good is that the food is tasty. The bad is the cashier has a problem understanding the orders choices, the floor and condiment area is filthy, takes a long time for food. You do not get all items that should come with the box orders. I discussed the slippery/greasy floor with the manager, who was uninterested in hearing that... More

When we got our food the fish was fried hard. Some of it we could not eat. The green beans and hush puppies were good.

One of the worst experiances ever. The cashier jerrica was more worried about seeing her boyfriends kids and talking about her personal life then taking my order correctly. That's how we ended up with an extra meal that we did not order then none of the sauces we asked for and then the drinks were all wrong 3 dr. Peppers... More

Food is greasy, typical fast food chain but worse. The place feels dirty. Maybe it's lack of attention. But I would not recommend.

No matter what town I am in, if they have a Long John Silver I will go. This outlet was same as all others. A bit of lunch time crowd but always worth it.

We had dined regularly here for years. I personally love KFC, and it was a treat when they arrived here along with Long John Silver's, another favorite of mine which I'd not had access to in many years. However, on our last visit, my husband and son chose to go into the restaurant instead of through the drive through, and... More

This is near my house but the service is almost always slow and the orders may have something wrong. We only go there when we must have some KFC or fish. Heaven help you if you go when a crowd from Six Flags hits the place.

Long John Silvers have all left where I live so I was happy to see one here. It reminds me of Arthur Treatchers which was the place that introduced me to battered fish. Their fish is good and I love the hush puppies.

The entire family loves chicken. Unfortunately we have lost track of how many times they are 'out of chicken'. We often have to wait 10 to 15 minutes while they cook more. We all prefer dark meat chicken, but often have to substitute white meat instead for part of our order unless we want to wait. We unfortunately also get... More
