Great food, the building is way too small for the volume of business they do. A must eat though!! We ate on the patio last Friday night, they were short handed but they handled it fairly well. It was worth the mishaps for the taste...More

A hit or near miss as far as food goes, usually it OK. It's worth stopping in if your in Hartselle to support a family owned business.

This place is North Alabama's best kept secret for seafood! The seafood is truly fresh. Mr. Waddell makes one to two trips weekly down to the Alabama gulf coast and returns with fresh shrimp. Trust me, you cannot find better tasting fried shrimp at Gulf...More
