Manager please save your restaurant. We have had dinner at your restaurant at least 10 times since opening. Love ribs Our food last night should not have been served. Came in wanting casual dinner ribs. And chicken fingers. Fingers were good but ffs were hard...and VERY overfried. Ribs. Hard dry, overcooked, terrible. Baked potatoe burnt and overcooked. Salad came one minute before dinner. Restaurant empty. We ate what we could of it and paid bill and left. So sad. We need restaurants in Shallotte. Can't serve food like this and stay open. Thr dinner two weeks before was almost as bad. Know it's hard time right now but there was no excuse for that dinner.More

Great friendly staff, great quality food, competitive prices, even allocated bourbon for folks that like that kind of thing :)! If your close by you should definitely give Chance’s a try

Excellent shrimp and grits! Mahi mahi was good but missing the grilled pineapple pico :( Then came the desserts—chiffon key lime pie was great but the Belgian chocolate mousse cake was FANTASTIC!!!!

So we saw a commercial for this restaurant and it looked great. We were planning to be passing thru this area and ended up stopping for a late Saturday lunch. We sat at the bar and ordered the chopped steak “special” after a recommendation from...our server. The food was great, perfectly cooked, very flavorful. Service was helpful and friendly. We will come back sometime during dinner hours to try out that menu.More

How can a restaurant, who claims to have the best of a certain dish, Features the entree in the menu, run out of it at 6:00 on a Saturday evening and tells us, the customers, to come back tomorrow after we are all sitting at...a table with drinks in front of us??????More

The several times I have been here the food has been awesome. The cheesecake and KeyLime pie...haven't had that good a dessert anywhere in the area. The service has always been good. The shorts worn by some of the staff...well they are a little "too...short". Just my opinion :) . Thanks for the great food at great prices.More

Stopped in during family vacation nearby, and wish we had just eaten elsewhere! Very disappointed!! Steaks were tough, stringy and pretty inedible, even the filet ! The fries were black, as if dipped in motor oil! Meal for 4 was $141 plus tip .. waste...of money and left disgusted!! Also our server never came to give refills which was another negative! Never again!!More

Dined on a Sunday. Hoping to miss the crowds. There were none to worry about. Reservations for 8 in a party. I really don't think the were 8 in the restaurant. Food was pricey. Oysters inhibitivly so. Service was good. Missed drink refills. Chicken tenders...were good. Ribs good. Ny strip cold and red. I sent it back which they did by swapping plates. Not to sure about rules of returns. It was fine when they bought it back. DIDN'T ask about deserts. Isn't this one of the money making. Items? Very just ok.More

Where to start... We were looking forward to the prime rib option for Thanksgiving dinner. After 8 of us ordered our food we were told they only had well done prime rib and were out of sweet potato casserole. We were offered rib eye instead....Fortunately, 5 of us wanted the ham and turkey dinners. After 3 of us received our rib eyes they were raw, not rare, RAW! When we sent the rib eyes back they came back cooked okay but 60 % of each steak was gristle and fat. Needless to say, it was terrible. All 8 of us had missing sides or sides on our plate that we didn't order. Most of the food was cold. When we ordered dessert they were out of the chocolate pie, the 1 of 3 options most of us wanted. Some of us resorted to pumpkin pie which was served with no whipped cream and very plain. Chances..."chances are we will F up your order but we have beer." The one part we enjoyed was our waitress Paige. She had a great attitude and was prompt. We felt bad for her because it was her birthday and the kitchen screwed up everything.More

Where to start....Five of us made reservations for this restaurant at 2pm for Thanksgiving Dinner. Loved the fact that they offered traditional food or prime rib. One of our party never got his salad. The server came out and said they had run out of...prime rib but said some more would be ready in 20 minutes. Then she came out and said they had run out of sweet potato casserole. We waited on our prime rib but there is no way this was fresh.....meat was dry and tough. The lima beans were dry as if they had been plated quite a while ago and were cold. The green bean casserole were mixed with the collards which I did not order. The mashed potatoes and gravy were quite good as was the rolls. The place was not crowded since everyone had reservations and yet they still could not provide anything other than a Golden Corral meal that should have been 6.99 and was charged 29.00 each. Nope, won't be going back, fool me once but not twice!More

This was my first visit to Chance's and I must say I was very pleased with the whole experience. There was a party of about 14 walked in ahead of me but there were two receptionists at the counter so the wait to be seated...was only a minute or so. Got a menu, ordered a beverage and the waitress took my food order. The place appeared to be fairly full, judging from the number of cars in the parking lot, but there are different seating sections set up so you don't get the middle school cafeteria effect the former occupants in the building had. Anyhow, I ordered the Shrimp and Grits and IT WAS THE BEST S&G I HAVE EVER HAD! Flavor, temperature and portion size could not have been better. Absolutely will be back,More

Stopped for the lunch special for $9.99. Was impressed. Drink refills non-stop. Service good just a little slow, understandable . We had the chicken and gravy over rice, tasty. The cole slaw was very good and the mashed potatoes not bad. The bun was still...warm but did have to ask for butter. Inside was bright and clean with tables spaced far apart. Would have liked to see the staff wearing masks. Overall it was a nice lunch with a country feel.More

My husband and I went last night for dinner. Delicious crab dip and toasted pita. Very very good. I had the special trigger fish and shrimp dinner which was very good. My husband had a rib eye steak which was tender and juicy. The waitress...was so friendly and very attentive. We will definitely be going back againMore

I have been many times. My sister and I like to share the Blackbeard ribeye, pound of crab legs (or 2 sometimes) and caesar salads. Can’t skip the crab dip! We’ve never had a bad meal there. We both enjoy a pretty rare-med rare steak...and they cook to perfection. The owner/GM usually stops by our table as he makes his way around to all of them. We went for Father’s Day, my sisters birthday, my sons and my birthday. Also, PROSECCO ON TAP!!!!! The service always matches with the delicious meal as well. My family loves this place and I’m about to organize our next dinner 😁More

A major disappointment. There was an issue with every dish ordered. Tuna appetizer - ordered rare, served medium and was over dressed. French onion soup - spiced nicely, cheese wasn’t browned, more bread than broth. Filet - tough, tasted like a salt lick. Very disappointing...given they have a butcher shop in house. Salads - clearly out of a bag, mostly iceberg. Pork Chop - also a salt lick, and dry as a desert. Broiled Shrimp and oyster - oysters better than the shrimp, but overall underwhelming. BBQ Trio - ribs OK. Brisket tender but over sauced. Pulled pork dry and tasteless. Plating - sad, everyone has a small kernel of a salad green as a garnish. Meh food and over priced for what was delivered.More
