We've been dining here for almost 20 years on and off and my family for many years prior. Whenever we're in town we make a point of stopping at Loves for great seafood, this trip was no exception. The place is always crowded, but we were seated quickly. I had the white shrimp, which as always was excellent. Not giant shrimp, but large enough. I had the large option, 19 or 22 shrimp. I also had the crab cake, made fresh, and it came with their great hush puppies and fries. My meal was very good! My wife had the crab cake meal and it was also excellent. On the following Sunday, we again ate at Loves with several family members and everyone had a great meal. The pricing is not bad and most families can enjoy a full meal and not leave broke! We ate our first meal around 6pm and got to see the sunset over the river. It was beautiful! If you want good seafood at good prices in a family atmosphere, Loves is the place to go!
Anyone within reasonable traveling distance will miss some of the greatest seafood tastes in the entire state of Georgia if they pass this restaurant by. With the seafood platter, I had a hard time choosing which item to eat next from the shrimp, oysters, catfish, scallops, crab ball, and hush puppies. It was SUPERB! Every item was cooked to perfection as if they had been prepared and cooked individually with their own seasonings, batter, and cooking oil. The coleslaw is the Southern recipe, which has a spicy bite, and not overdone with mayonnaise. The restaurant location and setting is first class also. This was my first visit, and I shall return as soon as possible for my next dining festival. If I lived closer, I would be eating here several times a week. A rare find, and I'm extremely thankful that the owners and management have taken the care required to maintain such quality food.
Ate here this evening (1/24/16) and was pleasantly surprised. We picked Love's off the internet having never been there. Don't let the size fool you, it looks small and there were a lot of cars parked but the place is actually really big. We had a table by the windows overlooking the lake which was pretty. The salad is pretty good with real chunks of bacon not bacon bits. I had the surf and turf with NY Strip, and Grilled Shrimp. it also comes with mashed potatoes, green beans, and two bread sticks. The NY Strip was cooked perfectly(medium rare) and was delicious. The mashed potatoes were some of the best I've ever had. My friend ordered a Ribeye steak that came with mashed potatoes, green beans and bread sticks. He said the steak was excellent. Both of us said the portions were really big, but worth it. Our server, Hattie was a doll as well. Would go back again.
