Favorite Seafood Restaurant

Libby Hill has been around for over 50 years, so if you're a native of Guilford County, NC chances are you know a little something about us. You know that we cook up some of the best seafood in the area, and you know that every Libby Hill Restaurant is a family-friendly kind of place.

Restaurants are located in North Carolina & Virginia

Those things remain the same, but over the years we've made some changes. There have been menu changes, all spurred by customer requests for things like boiled shrimp and broiled and grilled selections. We've added chicken and steaks to the menu, too. There are new restaurants in new locations. Libby Hill continues to grow and change. But after nearly fifty years, one thing remains the same: Libby Hill is the place to go for terrific seafood. For those of you who are new to the area, here is the Libby Hill story.

Luke & Elizabeth Conrad in front of the first Restaurant in 1953. The restaurant, which has since moved down the street, was on the corner of New Garden Road and Hwy. 220 in Greensboro, NC.

Luke Conrad opened the first Libby Hill Seafood Restaurant back in 1953. The building, an old roadhouse that had been padlocked by the sheriff because of bawdy activities, was situated on the corner of Hwy. 220 North (Battleground Avenue) and New Garden Road, out in the country, north of Greensboro. While that restaurant has been moved to a location about two blocks north on Cotswold Avenue, it is still going strong, and some of our original customers are still "regulars" there today. Greensboro has grown since then, and so has Libby Hill. That first restaurant is in the city limits now, and there are twelve other Libby Hill restaurants scattered across North Carolina and Virginia.

One of many sponsored events in the community, Libby Hill's "Watering Hole" provides a welcome treat for weary revelers during Greensboro's Annual Fun 4th celebration.

In the old days, every Libby Hill entree was fried. (In 1953, nobody worried about cholesterol.) Today, you will find broiled selections and grilled selections. Our fried seafood is cooked in 100% pure vegetable oil. Eating healthy? In 2003, Libby Hill Seafood partnered with the Moses Cone Health Care System to provide healthy eating choices for cardiac patients. This program led to the MCHeartWise selections on our menus.

Over the years our menu selection has evolved as well. Chicken and steaks have been added to the menu, and there are appetizers, soups, salads and desserts. Fish, Shrimp, and Chicken Sandwiches have become very popular with our customers. You can dine in the cheerful, wholesome atmosphere of a Libby Hill dining room or relax at home with a cooked-to-order take-out meal. Libby Hill restaurants are open for lunch and dinner, and most are open seven days a week. (The restaurants on High Point Road in Greensboro and on Main Street in High Point are closed on Sunday.)

The Conrad family still runs Libby Hill, currently in its third generation! Even if it's been years since your last visit to Libby Hill, you will find that there are plenty of things that haven't changed -- things like fresh, delicious food, service that is fast and friendly, and tremendous value. And Libby Hill is still a family-friendly kind of place, so kids (and grand-kids, of course) are welcome here.

So if you are hungry for terrific seafood, steak or chicken, we invite you to stop in sometime and try Libby Hill.

Favorite Greensboro Dining

Anton's Restaurant is a unique landmark in the city of Greensboro. It was started in 1960 when Bill Anton bought what was then "Irving Park Delicatessen". Over the years, he managed to transform the convenient curb service deli into one of the most popular restaurants in Greensboro. Locals grew up dining at Anton's Restaurant with their families. No matter what the occasion - birthdays, anniversaries, prom, graduation, or weddings - the restaurant was a special place to gather and enjoy a meal.

Today, another generation of the Anton family operates the 45 year old restaurant. Tom Anton offers Greensboro folks a place to share a meal with their family and friends in the same tradition which was started by his father.
