About Fiddlers Seafood Market and Restaurant
Serving Fresh Comfort
Tucked away in Ridgeland, SC, Fiddlers Seafood Market and Restaurant serves local fresh seafood with a side of charm!
Story of Fiddler’s Seafood Restaurant & Fiddler’s Seafood Market In 1999 Billy Rowell, a commercial fisherman needed a place to sell his catch and Ridgeland, South Carolina needed a place to purchase fresh local seafood.
Billy and his wife Donna decided to open both a fresh seafood market and Fiddler’s Seafood Restaurant. Billy focused on the market and Donna dove into the restaurant- building both from scratch to the iconic destination it is today.
With the passing of Donna’s mom, Grace Boyles, some soul searching took place and Billy and Donna decided to put Fiddler’s on the market in 2022.
Lynden and Sally Zuniga took over Fiddlers Seafood Restaurant and Fiddlers Seafood Market in January of 2023. With Chef Lynden having extensive seafood experience, he was up for the challenge to maintain what makes Fiddlers a staple in the Lowcountry.
Keeping the best fried seafood the same, you might see some exciting additions to the menu to enhance local, fresh ingredients.
The Zuniga’s are honored to carry on the legacy of the Rowell’s through Fiddlers Seafood Restaurant and Fiddler’s Seafood Market. We look forward to serving our loyal local community as well as visitors passing through.
As Donna would say: See ya soon!!!
