Seafood in the Triad

Roger Jun 4, 2012 01:40 PM

Is there a seafood restaurant in the Triad that is not owned by the Greeks. After many bad seafood meals at local modertlly priced seafood restaurants I wish for a non Greek owned restaurant. Last Saturday was one of the worst meals that I have had. At Captain's Galley in Advance I orderedd the perch. What was served was 6 small filets about one inch wide by three inches long with heavy breading. Greasy is the word. The so called french fries were chewy, however you do that. Slaw was ok. Hushpuppies were greasy.
Every moderate seafood restaurant that I have tries has yielded the same results.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Try Jimmy's Seafood or King's Crab Shack, both in Winston-Salem.

      Don't know what I was thinking, but I forgot to mention Full Moon Oyster Bar in Clemmons. Definitely worth a visit!

      Is it really necessary to disparage an entire nationality because you had one bad meal? Anyway, if you are looking for simple, inexpensive fried seafood, try Libby Hill. For more upscale choices in Greensboro, try 1618 Seafood Grill or Fishbones (not Bonefish, the chain, although its probably the best chain restaurant I've ever been to). Also, Opa!, a Greek restaurant downtown ( yes, Greek) has pretty good seafood, too.
