Very good fresh seafood. Has something for everybody. Great fresh grouper sandwiches for lunch. I had the blackened shrimp which was locally caught and very good. The cheese grits are the best I've ever had. Beautiful view of the harbor at the new location.

Food is average to good. Atmosphere out-dated- could use some paint and a good cleaning. Staff is friendly for most part. Fries are good. Okra is good. Skip the green beans and cornbread. Wish they had breakfast all day and fried chicken more often.
