Here at The Fishin’ Pig, we have the finest from land and sea: savory, smoked meats and flavorful, fresh seafood! Founded by Matt Hurley, Nash, Shorty, and Jim Osborn, The Fishin’ Pig is a southern culinary combination that will delight all the senses!
Inspired by Memphis,
and a Few Friends...
It all started in Memphis, TN, the BBQ
Capital of the World, where Matt Hurley
was honing his skills on the banks of the Mississippi River. He then made the move to Virginia, opening Mulligan’s Sports Grille in Farmville. Missing the smell of a smoker,
Matt founded Grady’s BBQ,
named after his dad, in 2006.
While Matt was bringing his
Memphis-style expertise to the small
town of Farmville, Shorty’s passion for
catchin’ and eatin’ fish led to the
creation of Shorty’s Famous
Seafood & Chicken Breading
and the popular phrase;
“Catch n’ Release in the Grease”.
As luck would have it, Nash and Jim
joined the Mulligan’s family as
bartenders, introducing the Fish to the Pig.
The relationship went swimmingly and in
October 2012 they decided to go whole hog
and combine the two companies to make
The Fishin’ Pig.
