I'm from the coast and used to the fresh seafood restaurants. I do miss that living in Greenville.

Is there a decent priced restaurant to go for good seafood for lunch besides a chain like Red Lobster?

...something moderately priced.

Drive to Charleston!!! Just kidding, I have that same question myself. If you want to spend a lot of money, Nantucket is very good. I have yet to find any moderately priced restaurants that sell good seafood in the area. We need to locals to chime in and offer their opinions. And I agree, not Red Lobster.

Nantucket Seafood Grill in downtown Greenville has a good fresh fish menu that you can trust.

I would to have more seafood options as well! I am with foxtrot--Charleston, but local I guess Nantuckets is it. I do go to the Easley Farmers market in the spring. There is a couple there that goes to Charleston & they bring shrimp & sell it.

I do drive to Charleston when I want good seafood. 3 hour drive, eat shrimp for lunch and shrimp and grits for dinner and head home.

lol. Yep, my family is in Charleston and believe me when I go for a visit, I get my fill of fresh shrimp, oysters, flounder, etc. Red Lobster and Long John Silvers just don't cut it.

Thanks for the suggestion of Nantuckets. I was hoping there was some nice restaurant that I was unaware of that was not quite so pricey.

There are definitely reasonably priced seafood options other than RL and LJS, but you need to expand your search to include restaurants that aren't commonly known as "seafood restaurants." Check the lunch and dinner menus at places like Larkin's On The River (fantastic she crab soup), Nose Dive, Chicora Alley, etc... Not to mention the many sushi options.

Nantucket is great. I've had some very good seafood entrees at Stax Grill also. They are often featured on Restaurant.com so you can eat there for an incredibly reasonable price.

What about the Plaid Pelican? I've heard it is pretty good for seafood, but haven't had it there to confirm...

It closed recently. There is one thread and several other posts in the "Recently Closed Businesses" thread about its closing.
