If you are looking for bank for your buck check out Silverbay Seafood restaurant in Simpsonville. Large portions of seafood, will definitely leave with a full stomach and some leftovers. Food was always fresh and the service was always good whenever I went there. They make the most delicious hush puppies! Also have 2 dining rooms with a fantastic fish tank where you can sit and watch baby sharks and beautiful fish swim while you eat.

Not exactly bang for the buck, but definitely fabulous seafood.

Nantucket Seafood Grill, opened by Rick Erwin, who owns Rick Erwins West End Grill (which was voted one the top 50 restaurants nationally by Open Table).

That's funny, because we thought that it was mediocre at best, very bland and really expensive, the ambiance is nice though, but High Cotton blows it out of the water; I think it's the most over rated restaurant in Greenville along with Giovanni's, but hey different strokes for different folks. But that does bring up a good point, there really isn't a stellar seafood place, but that's to be expected I guess, being close to four hours from the ocean.

The devil you say! Haven't been to Nantucket yet, but am anxiously awaiting a reason to go! Although we haven't been to Giovanni's in a couple years (we love Italian food, but for some reason almost never have it when we dine out), we both loved the food & wine, and the personal service was beyond reproach.

NYB - I also agree with you about Silver Bay. Haute cuisine it ain't, but it's fresh, honest, affordable seafood. Same goes for Harbor Inn.

We have completely enjoyed Nantucket Seafood Grill. It is obviously not going to win the "best bang for your buck" category, however in my opinion, they are one of the few providers of high quality and truly fresh seafood in the Upstate without question.

Other good (quality) seafood options in the Upstate include:

You will have to scrape the grease off of the inside of your mouth after eating here. Less than mediocre.

Have eaten at Silverbay several times while living in Greenville.....and a few more times during visits within the last year....have never found their seafood to be greasy at all. Food is always fresh.

The bottom line is this....the op asked for bang for buck good seafood.....Silverbay and Harbor Inn (almost forgot about them, thank you Upstatebooster) will more than satisfy most who just want a fresh, filling seafood dinner in a un-pretentious pleasant atmosphere without breaking the bank. Now if the person feels like spending what probably will add up to $100 or more for dinner at Nantucket in downtown and still be able to see empty space left on their plate....than that is an option too.
