As I drove up to this restaurant nestled on a little lake with all the charm of a hidden jewel, I instantly knew my experience was going to be good. To buildings, one was the oyster bar sitting down near the water between trees draped with Spanish Moss. The other was the main restaurant and it was nicely decorated. Both... More

Great food and service! The steaks and seafood are delicious! Great dessert selections, offers lunch Wednesday through Sunday and has a salad "barrel" ! Lol! Jimbo and his wife and Connie and the crew ( even John) go out of their way that your experience is the best! Enjoy!

Our waitress tonight was Ursalla. I have had poor waitresses before but she is close to the top on my list. There were six us there this evening celebrating a birthday. She took everyone's order at the same time but when she brought out the dinners she only brought five. She looked at the person that did not get her... More

We got the seafood platter and expectations were over the top. Why go waste my empty stomach on a salad bar though? I saved the salad space so I could eat everything else. So full I couldn't eat the potato. Everything was wonderful and of course the waitress was so quick to replenish our drinks. We will be back; again,... More

My husband and I had dinner here. It was a beautiful night so we were able to sit at one of the outdoor tables. Beautiful views of the lake. Friendly staff. Really enjoyed our server, Johnnie. I had the red snapper and my husband had shrimp and oysters. Food was amazing. Can't wait to go back!

The alligator was great! All the fried seafood was great! Hushpuppies were out of this world! Service was nothing to complain about, food came out in a reasonable amount of time. Pecan pie was standard but the slice was tiny. I was sad that the Hummingbird cake was nothing special.
