I was going to be in Georgetown, so I researched Seafood there. Old Fish House had 5 star reviews, so I thought I would try it. I would rate it average at best. May be a local icon, but honestly I have been to half a dozen seafood places closer to home that was better by a long shot. I... More

Although this place gives guests the chance to eat on the outside patio and you might see a couple alligators and turtles below, I found the food preparation rather mediocre although I have to admit the prices were reasonable. Even the French fries tasted like ones reheated in the oven and my husband's Sunday special was rather bland. There were... More

Went for lunch with a group of 5 friends. Waitress can only be described as surly. We should have left right off but we were hungry. The food was marginal at best.

Cool pub, cold beer and a good diverse menu. Seems like a great locals spot. If you have some time it is definitely worth a try.

Located on the Georgetown Downtown Walk, has outside seating for those nice days. Lots of locals. We visited on a Sunday morning for Brunch. Bloody Marys and Mimosa were the popular choices. Both were tasty. Get there early because by noon there is at least a 20-30 minute wait for a table (outside maybe longer). Service was decent even with... More

We could not get outside seating, but inside was comfortable. The burger was tasty and service was fast and good. Seems a little pricey to me, but its location, location, location! The ladies bathroom was occupied by someone who needed to stay in there a very long time and there is only one available....so that was not helpful. We have... More

Dinner was delicious but the she crab soup was truly remarkable! The servers worked together nicely and were well versed on the menu and very helpful and friendly. I'm so grateful they recommended the soup!

This place could be "Cheers" if it only had more seating. Great music playing in the background, friendly conversations from the several small groups gathered there. The beer was cold and the service is over the top. The Seafood Platter was delicious. My wife had a salad with Grouper. The couple we were with had steak, and seared Tuna. The... More
