The oyster house is always an enjoyable and delicious place to eat. Their shrimp scampi is heavenly and if you like grits you won't be disappointed. Love the salad bar and their choice of sides. A little pricey but you won't be let down.

We have come back for the 5th year. My favorite on the menu is the Parmesan Shrimp. It has a great flavor. The Gumbo is a full of flavor and ingredients. It is loaded with Shrimp and sausage.
