We recently had one of our own team members visit Straight Drop Seafood—one of Fayetteville’s best kept secrets, located on Reilly Road off of Cliffdale and west of Skibo.
Raven is our rockstar listing coordinator who is also a mom, wife, and recent participant in raising over $900 for St. Baldrick’s Foundation by shaving her head.
This was her first time visiting Straight Drop Seafood. The restaurant opened in 2017 and brings a combined Georgia and Florida style seafood to the Carolinas. The popularity of this restaurant exploded soon after opening. Their key meals are steam plates and shrimp and grits.
The chef, Yamani Albert, also opened Drop By the River on Person Street last October. Boasting over 65 employees, Yamani talks about opening a Wilmington location in the future!
Raven tells us that the staff at Straight Drop Seafood was both friendly and knowledgeable, stating that the restaurant boasted plenty of seating and quick food delivery.

Her family tried two dishes—the friend halibut and the fried shrimp and oysters. Rest assured, the experience did not disappoint. She says it was delicious!
“Everything was fresh and crispy,” Raven states. “I would have loved to have tried the crawfish and crab legs but we went later in the day and they were already sold out!”
While it’s always disappointing to have to order your second choice, it is fantastic news that this local restaurant that sells fresh seafood is tasty and popular enough to stay that busy.
At Straight Drop Seafood, it is a laid back environment. If you are looking for a relaxed and informal dining experience, reminiscent of fresh seafood restaurants at the beach and on the water, this is the Fayetteville place for you! Order at the register and then seat yourself wherever you like—perfect for families with kids!
Needless to say, you may spot our team at this restaurant more often in the future. Straight Drop Seafood, we love what you bring to the community and we are dying to try those crab legs!
