Great place right off of 95! It is worst getting off! The owners are very kind and the food is delicious. They make everything fresh. You can't get better seafood by the sea. We stop once a year on the way to Florida and never regret it!

A delightful seafood restaurant in an unexpected location. No frills, but the offerings were first-rate. Even the onion rings were good.

On a roadtrip south , we stopped at Ridgeland, S.C. for supper and found this fantastic sea food restaurant and fish market. The atmosphere was truly a southern charm, one you must experience. The food was out of this world , tasty and scrumptious . You have to try it.

Being near the coast we wanted to eat seafood at least once on our vacation and found our way to Fiddlers. Being the first time eating there the staff was very helpful and went through the entire menu was us and answered all our questions. The crab legs are excellent and The seafood platter is just as good.

Fiddler's is a family-and-friends kind of place--if you don't bring friends with you, you'll make some while you're there. The decor reflects the seashore and fishing theme--happy colors enhance the welcome. It's simple eats, with a large chalkboard-style menu--shrimp baskets, Lowcountry boil, flounder fried or grilled, burgers. Lots of sides, like fried okra, baked sweet potato, Mac and cheese, etc....

Small town atmosphere is friendly and cozy, with a genius in the kitchen. The freshest seafood anywhere is prepared with care and precision. It's not a fancy place, but very much worth the trip if you're not a local. Everything is prepared after you order, but service is amazingly fast, even during a busy lunch. Options include fried, grilled, steamed... More

If you are a seafood lover, Fiddlers is the place for you. Seafood is local and fresh. Hamburgers are the best in town.

Great place to go for fried or steamed seafood. They also have wonderful sides and desserts. If someone in your party doesn't want seafood, they have other options. I really love their fried shrimp and steamed snow crabs!! I stopped in the other day just to get a large lemonade because it's the best around. Do yourself a favor if... More

This is a small town restaurant with BIG flavors. The seafood comes from the owners shrimp boat. Very fresh. Great grilled fish. Wonderful lemonade.

One of the best seafood and cooks in the low country. Fresh seafood. They run a separate seafood market just behind the restaurant, where they catch their own. There's nothing much to see in this town, but the restaurant alone is definitely worth the trip!
