We had the most delicious meal at the Big Tuna this evening. The She Crab Soup was creamy and rich with delicious pieces of crab. We ordered the whole flounder which was scored, lightly breaded and fried. It was moist, flaky and flavorful. So glad we chose the Big Tuna!

Popped in and sat at bar early in the day. By the time we left the line was out the door. Fun to chat with the locals and had the best deal ever for a substantial amount of the sweetest creamiest large oysters I've ever had. The Bloody Mary was so spectacular I ordered a second. Would be fun to... More

The Big Tuna has very good, fresh seafood caught locally. Servers are friendly, knowledgeable. Restaurant looks like it's been on the waterfront forever and is ideal for a fun evening.

Great atmosphere is you like the casual dining experience. The food was excellent although there was a storm going on and we had to make a mad dash for it, it was worth it. The seafood was excellent.

A usual stop when I'm visiting home. Had the scallops and they were some of the best I have had. Great , friendly service, amazing atmosphere and definitely a favourite for locals. Always a must when in Georgetown. Amazing food, great views of the river and time with friends and family. Doesn't get any better than this.

When we stop and check out the fish of the day and they tell us it is grouper, we are happy. We order our hot grouper sandwiches and cold beer and proceed to enjoy the combination out on the deck which faces the Sampit River. We were told Hurricane Matthew did some damage in fall of 2016, but all is... More

Whole fried flounder. Nobody, I mean nobody does it better!! Fresh out of the water daily, lightly dusted and scored both sides, it's the runaway Grand Prize on the menu. Don't be intimidated when you walk in. It's not a biker bar. It's a local hangout for locals as well folks driving from miles around to enjoy food, drink and... More

While visiting Georgetown, we stopped to eat at this quaint restaurant. Upon entering the wait staff promptly greeted us, my husband is on a walker and the server could not have been nicer helping us to a table. The crab cake was awesome, (especially the black beans and rice). The patrons seemed to have a joyful comradeship and the other... More

We sat outside at this cute restaurant. I had to write this review for one main reason: the she-crab soup!!! It was not just my favorite she-crab soup, it was my favorite soup ever. Absolutely luscious. I also had the shrimp salad which was delicious.
