    The whole place smelled like fish. We thought this was going to be a place to get a nice seafood dinner. The staff were very nice, but the decor, food and ambiance is more like a seaside diner than a seafood restaurant.

    We got the broiled shrimp and scallops entrees. Very good and cooked just right. And the peanut butter dessert really put our dining experience over the top. We'll be back!

    The calamari appetizer was excellent: light and flavorful. My companion had flounder and scallops, with collards and salad, which she greatly enjoyed. I had shrimp and scallops with cole slaw and garlic mashed potatoes. It was very good and enjoyable, but I wasn't used to the seasoning on the shrimp or corn in cole slaw. Service by Matt was exemplary. I would definately return and try something from their fresh catch board.

    We chose the fresh catch of the day and you could choose from 5 different ways to have it prepared. Our server was very helpful in letting us know which styles would work with fish that we selected. The food was very good. We had hot crab dip as an appetizer and it was delicious! It dip was made from crab only. Several restaurants in the area only have "seafood and crab." We hadn't eaten there in years because we moved away from the area. It was wonderful to find out that they still have terrific food and service!

    Very nice and diversified menu. It was hard to choose which appetizer & entree looked more delicious. My baked oysters were great. The scallops and flounder were perfect. Cheesy biscuits were delightful. Service was stellar. I had no room left for dessert but……. I’m definitely going back again.

    This was our first time dining at Hieronymus but it won't be our last. The variety of seafood offered was great. The options for fried, grilled or steamed was even better. Our food was well seasoned, filling and we received good portions. The fried calamari was impressive. At most restaurants, the calamari begins to soften quickly as it cools but not here. The calamari retained its crunch and that is exactly how I like it! I wish this restaurant had a banquet room because I'd use it for special events!

    The food was delicious and the server was very attentive and kind. The steaks weren’t cooked quite right for 2 of our guests, but the server noticed it even before we did so he was happy to get new ones. The seafood for everyone that had it was very filling — large portions!
