Until Wednesday I would have given Shelby Fish Camp a five star rating, but something has changed. The fish was not good at all. It was cooked to fast and was not well done inside. The portions was smaller and it didn't taste as good as about a month ago the last time I went. Its as though someone else is running the place now. I have never had a bad meal with them till now.

Pretty good however, the portion sizes have changed tremendously.The fish fillets were previously the size of a actual fish, now it is more like nuggets. They are priced about the same but portion size describes that...the service has never been great, always semi warm greetings, therefore we we always ordered to go. I do eat there when visiting still because it has a sense of history behind it, not commercial tasting.

I live in Shelby and I have heard many good things about the Shelby Fish Camp so when my family wanted to get together for a six-birthday party we chose it to have dinner. I called two days ahead and made reservations for nine, but when we got there no one greeted us...there was only a sign saying to seat ourselves. Well, being a large party we couldn't do so and after a few minutes of waiting for one of the five servers wandering around aimlessly to help us my boyfriend finally found one in the waitstation and asked about being seated. She said she had heard about a party but she didn't know anything about it and she went to ask someone else about it, meanwhile leaving six of us standing at the door.

Finally our server seated us, and after the rest of our party arrived he took our orders and everything, which went fine. He was nice and the orders came out fine, but after delivering the food he said he'd come back with a pitcher of tea and water but he never came back to check or bring refills. Finally my mom had to go find someone to bring tea refills for the table. Also, only one person, a hostess, came and cleared any dishes even though we had appetizers and there were several piles of dishes that needed to be taken. Eventually we piled them all on the table next to us so we had room to move.

And that brings me to the food. It was okay. My boyfriend and I both ordered the baby flounder and popcorn shrimp special, his with a potato and mine with fries. Both of us felt that the baby flounder was overcooked, as it was like chewing on crunchy leather. The shrimp, on the other hand, had not been cooked enough and the batter was very greasy and mushy. I heard much of the same from most of our party, and I know that when we left our dogs had a feast in their doggy bags.

The people were very nice, very pleasant, and we still enjoyed ourselves but all in all it was a mediocre dining experience.

I grew up in Shelby, moved away in the 80's. I miss the Shelby Fish Camp more than you could know. I have made two weekend trips just to get my catfish!!!!!! We have catfish up here but filet's only and they just can't hold a candle. Planning on coming back again in late April or early May to put flowers on my family grave and eat catfish. I always bring friend with me who have never eaten catfish and each time I end up with more catfish loving friends. I wish Shelby Fish camp could open a restaurant up this way. you would made a fortune. I can't wait to get back home and get my catfish and hushpuppies. My grandmother always said you had the best oysters anywhere. See you soon. Thanks for staying around!!!!!!!

Fish Camp has reasonable prices and great-tasting food. I was impressed with their selection. I especially liked the way the food was prepared. We enjoy ourselves almost every visit.

Parking was good. The building was well-maintained, and I liked the way the servers actually explained the menu and gave you time to look it over before they came back to you.

I always see tons of people there because it's a very popular place in town. They will also work with you on food selections, within reason.

The last time I was there, I tried the catfish. It was out of this world. It was marvelous as usual. GREAT PLACE to take your family!
