    This was my husband's and my first time at this restaurant. The atmosphere was nice walking in and the hostess was very friendly and sat us right away. The downside was our server was extremely rude and rushed us the entire visit and seemed annoyed to be serving us. We each got fish for dinner (flounder and brook trout) which was very good. After I signed the credit card statement and put a cash tip in the check sleeve our server was back and this time reached over me to the opposite side of the booth without saying excuse me (we also still had full drinks and were not ready to leave at that time, but did because we were so unhappy after spending $180.00 and having to deal with that type of service). Will not be going back.

    Second time here. The calamari appetizer was good. My mom wanted to try the low boil for two which was the same thing I had the 1st time. While it was still very good it wasnt as good or seasoned as the first time I had it. I would most definitely go back to the restaurant but next time I really will try something rlse. The key lime pie was good too.

    I went for lunch with a friend and was hoping the noise level was a fluke. My husband and I went for dinner, and he could not believe how loud it was. We had a reservation and when the hostess said we'd be upstairs, we asked if we could move downstairs as seemed less noisy. She said sure, if we wanted to wait an hour and 15 minutes. Really?? Our server was great and so was the food. We actually laughed the whole time about all the conversations we could hear. If I'm going to spend $120+ on dinner for two, I expect to be able to hold a conversation with the people at my table. We won't be back.

    This place has southern charm with its grits and collard greens as key side with some of dishes on the menu. Seafood is sourced locally, and I can tell you that the shrimp & grits is one of the best I've ever had. The decor is freshly remodeled and the view out over the marina at Julington creek makes for a very nice dining experience.

    First trip here and it was good enough to go back. Some of the dishes were not as good as we had hoped, but the steak was excellent as were the muscles, potatoes and mixed vegetables. The wahoo was a little overdone, but fried green tomatoes were good as was dessert. Drinks were done well also. Atmosphere was great as was the view, although they need to put a wooden barrier around the dumpster in the parking lot. A little to many kids in the crowded dining room (I left mine at home).

    This place is amazing from the time you get in till the time you get out. The atmosphere and vibe of the interior decor mix old new Florida style. The food is flavorful with an emphasis on local fish. The plates are not to big and not to small but everything is a la carte. The menu is very simple with a very good selection. The wine list is short but it seems like pairing with food thought thru.

    We stopped by for an early lunch before leaving town. Wished we had been for dinner, everything we had was fresh and delicious. Only wish we had been able to try more things! Server was pleasant, a little stiff for this style of restaurant. Could have been more friendly. But overall would highly recommend!

    We all had great food and the staff awesome. We ordered a wide variety of drinks, appetizers and entrees. My 5 year old loved the broiled oysters, my 9 year old wanted to order more calamari and my 10 year old liked all that and more. The catfish basket and fish sandwich were hits with them as well. The adults ordered the grouper special, the grilled salmon and the broiled platter - ALL great!!!

    I think this was the 5th or 6th visit here. Food was amazing and I must say, I have never been disappointed. This is the only place I don't hesitate about ordering fish - it's always fresh and wonderful. It is very noisy when trying to hold a conversation but when my husband and I have our young grand kids with us, we don't have to keep them quiet. Love this place.

    There had been a lot of hype from my friends. They all had really good things to say so I decided to give it a shot. Keeping it short and sweet, Julington Creek Fish Camp lived up to our high expectations. I have never been able to eat greens and I've never liked grits. I wanted the blackened grilled mahi and it came with both grits and greens. Thought since I was ordering a few things I don't like that I may have to struggle through it. That wasn't the case. It was fantastic and I cleaned my plate! We will definitely be back.

    We had the seafood boil. It was very well seasoned especially if you like things a little spicy. The only disappointment is the boil is supposed to feed two but in our opinion there is really only enough seafood for one person (or at least one guy as my friend could have eaten it himself). Unless the other person fills up on the corn & potatoes you'll be wishing you had more seafood. We've had boils for two at other fish camps and it seemed they had much more seafood on them although you may have paid slightly more. Will definitely go back but will probably order something else.
