Just drove by for lunch and they have vacated the place. Anyone know where they went? They did a nice job with fresh fish.

The food was prepared very nicely. The waitress was knowledgable and courteous. They did however run out of 2 specials before we could order. That being said, what we ordered was delightful. I'll go back for sure.

It's a smaller location, so when you walk in with a group of six you get nervous. Great food, from oysters on the half shell, to fish and chips, to sea scallops. A must try is the cajun shrimp and grits. Great service. Great prices....More
