Incredible place--if you can get in. It is tiny, but has fresh seafood case for carrying seafood home to cook. Love the fried oysters and crabs. Red potatoes are fantastic as a side. Friendly service.

Popped in for some shrimp for shrimp and grits and was amazed at the selection and quality....so thankful that Ellijay has this market to offer fresh seafood. I have not stayed to dine in, but hope to do so soon. Also 100 on their inspection....nice work!

Both of the waitresses were friendly and asked us to have a seat to wait on a table. As we looked around we saw there were only... More

I stopped by to grab a quick bite and it was indeed quick. I was surprised at how fast my food was ready. I ordered the coconut shrimp and clams.

This restaurant is small but they have a wonderful staff and the seafood is great. We live on the gulf side of FL and this place has better seafood than most of our local restaurants. Great food, nicest people and excellent service, what are you waiting for?

If you like seafood you definitely need to eat here. This was our 3rd place to eat in the Ellijay/Blue Ridge area and it was by far the best. There was little wait time and the food was excellent. When we drove up we almost had 2nd thoughts but talked to a person exiting the restaurant who assured us the... More
