We stopped here for lunch while traveling because of the great tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. The signature dish "Scampi Fiesta" was fantastic! We also had the stuffed mushrooms which were also very good. We will stop again for sure!

Stopped in to eat passing through town. The food was fantastic. portions very large. I had 2lbs of crab for $22.95. Can't beat that. Had one of the friendliest waitresses ever. Would highly recommend for anyone who likes seafood

According to my husband. The fish is very good, too, and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. The only complaint we had was the tartar sauce, which looked and tasted like plain mayonnaise. We got plenty of good seafood and sides to eat and really enjoyed our visit. Looking forward to coming back some Monday for all-you-can-eat crab legs!

The entrees were of a good portion size. I had the stuffed flounder. Being from the coast, I was expecting a filet stuffed, not two thinly sliced pieces in a broiling dish filled with a heavy bread crab stuffing between them. Price was good and the server was nice. So far from the coast, I should probably have chosen something... More

We eat here almost every time we go to Valdosta. Casual atmosphere, friendly service, and a nice selection of seafood and sides keep us coming back. Nothing fancy, just tasty seafood in hearty portions. My favorites include the fried shrimp and the fried oysters. If you order the feast for two, you'll have leftovers to carry home. Prices are very... More

Service was slow and terrible. Was not busy at all( now I see why) told them about the bad service and was told if we didn't like it don't come back. Tell too many paying customers that and you will be out of business. But guess what we won't be back so thanks for telling us. Bubba Jacks is better... More

We always eat here when going to Florida and also returning home. The price for seniors and lunch is very reasonable. My husband says this is some of the best clam chowder he has eaten. We've tried almost everything on the menu over the years. The fish and seafood is fresh, hot, and plentiful. The sides are very Southern and... More
