    Our server was super cool! Very chill. Even though he was dealing with allot of full sized tables he handled it very well and was patient with us, didn’t feel rushed at all. Would definitely go back to eat the food as well. Got my moneys worth.

    Our waiter was nice, however im not sure if it was due to the size of our table but we had a lengthy wait for our drinks and our food. Our food was cold and some things that we ordered was cold, salty and had to go back.

    After 25 years of preparing a turkey and having a house full of guests, we decided to try something new and took a chance on Dead fish grill. We were not disappointed. The food was outstanding. The staff was warm, friendly and attentive. Definitely made our Thanksgiving a relaxing and enjoyable day. Thank you. Dead Fish Grill.

    Mash potatoes were cold, grilled shrimp was very good. Chicken fried steak wasn't the best. It would be nice to have rolls or bread served with meal.

    We weren’t sure of eating outside due to the cold, but it was cozy. They have an upper level outside with large heaters. Had live music, good food, and cold beer!

    Service was great and there was no wait time for a table close to the window. My party of 3 were served promptly and our glass was never empty. The view is really nice in the evening. Food was fresh, hot and delicious.

    My wife and I celebrated our 30th Wedding Anniversary Here. I had the steak and it was one of the best I've had. My wife had the shrimp boil and even though it wasn't cooked with traditional shrimp boil seasonings (we're from Louisiana and are used to actual shrimp boil powder and liquid seasonings in our boils) it was still delicious with the exception of the sausage. The sausage had an unusual texture and flavor all its own. We will definitely eat here again.

    The restaurant is nice and I really like being next to the water. The waiter provided excellent service. The food was okay was not worth the price. I’m fine with spending $80 on a really good dinner, but this was not worth it. Will not be going back.

    The main thing that lead to this bad review is that our food was cold and the half the steak was raw. Our server was nice or nothing against her.

    Every time I've gone to Dead Fish I've enjoyed my food. My husband was really excited because he got to eat some oyster that he's been craving for since oyster season began. If you haven't been you need to go. Oh yeah if you're really wanting the experience try and go when the sun is about to set because they shoot off the cannon which made me jump but they warn you before they light it and it fires

    We were sited immediately, however the waiter took a while to come and check on us but being that it was Friday night we were patient. I didn’t like the fact that our waiter left or didn’t have time to check on us and someone else came to give us our check. Overall nice vibe for friends and family to come hang out. Food was ok.

    Went on a weeknight and were very relieved to find a more peaceful atmosphere and more attentive service. Food prices are fairly high compared to the venue ambience, but everything was tasty. Have been several times on the weekend and have had very poor service as well as very loud atmosphere. Will visit again during the week!
