I wasn't sure what to expect here as so far we have been disappointed in our food choices in this area. What a great surprise! It doesn't have a view and its not by the water however the food here made up for all that....More

Look, if you want a candle lit dinner-bring your own candle. However, if you want food that you will write home about, come here. This place was fairly priced and the flavor of the food was amazing! I recommend the amberjack grilled with cheesegrits!

To speak particularly of anything i will simply sassy this: that the shrimp is ALWAYS on point, and their cheese grits are absolutely fantastic. Also, probably the best hush puppies ever. EVER.

We get take out here at least 2-3 times a month. The food is always good and well worth the wait. It is important for tourists and first time guests to understand that this is not fast food and all orders are cooked to order...More

They don't take reservations. It's like a fast food restaurant except with Really good and fresh seafood! The seating they do offer is limited and on an outside porch so no A/C which is a important feature in the summer here. More
