Huntington West virginia is also known by it’s nickname “Jewel City” as this is the moniker used by river boat captains of the past when describing the city to passengers. Huntington’s nickname is Jewel City because at one time it was the western terminus of the C&O railroad and was rich in goods and natural resoures. When the conditions were right on the river the steamboats would load and unload goods from the local ports and tranfer the goods up and down the Ohio river valley. At Jewel City Seafood all of our food is made to order. The fresh seafood is hand selected from our display case and either cut or portioned into serving size. It is prepared using one of our timeless cooking methods

This was my second dine-in experience since March 2020. Felt very comfortable with their precautions. Had the large grilled shrimp with red beans and beans and tomatoes. The shrimp were good, the red beans were better, and the green beans and tomatoes were excellent. The...whitefish looked good and service was also good. This was a “Good”Experience and would return.More

Very nice atmosphere. The restaurant was very clean and the staff attentive. Each of us got different entrees and sides, and then we shared to compare. We each had our favorites, but everything was fresh and tasty! Definitely recommend.

Not fancy but if you want fresh seafood this is a must stop. It’s all about the food! They offer take out trays and the fresh shrimp version looked wonderful.

We went there on a slow rainy Wednesday afternoon. The restaurant was clean and social distancing was practiced. I have mobility issues and unfortunately we were seated at the table furthest from the door. Our server was very nice and really took care of us....It was Veterans Day and a basic meal was complimentary of to veterans. I wanted a little more so I ordered a combination platter. My sides were perfect. I had red beans and rice. I also had parsleyed potatoes that were simply outstanding. My seafood platter was just OK. I'm not a big fan of fried seafood.all in all, a very good experience.More

This is a small seafood restaurant/retail establishment. It is definitely low key as far as ambiance is concerned but we liked it. It smells like seafood so if that offends you, take a hard pass. Our waitress was new. She was very sweet, and she...tried really hard so kudos to her. The merlot wine was surprisingly good so don't be afraid. They automatically bring you hush puppies with honey butter. They were delicious! We had the large steamed shrimp with collard greens and buttered red potatoes. The sides were pretty darn good. The large shrimp was considerably small by the time it was steamed. It was also overcooked so the shrimp was dry and chewy. That was really disappointing. We wanted seafood so we ate it anyway. They have a good price on the jumbo crab meat but sadly (for me) it is from Asia. So, if you are concerned about where they source the seafood definitely ask. We were just passing through so it is unlikely we would have the opportunity to return. Hint: We found that after 5:00 pm you don't have to pay for street parking.More

When I first came to Huntington five years ago, this is one of the first restaurants I visited. I was impressed then and that favorable opinion continues today. With a wide variety of seafood and sides I can always enjoy a different meal on each...visit. The staff is friendly, helpful, and attentive. The food is always perfect. I have nothing negative to say. All good.More

This location has great customer service. It is in a great location and has a nice selection of sea food. If you love seafood, it's best to ask the server for recommendations. My favorite was not the seafood. It was the fried green tomatoes. The...special sauce adds the right flavor.More

I'm pretty confident they have all kinds of seafood to purchase to take home. Like a fish market if you will.
