Our family ate dinner here on a busy Friday night. It was crowded, but we were seated pretty quickly, and the service was fast. The food was mediocre. My crawfish tails and my husband's shrimp tasted identical. And everyone's food was overfried. Worst of all, the oil the food was fried in tasted old. Nice service, not so great food.

The Seafood boat is a fried seafood platter that can feed up to 4 average eaters at a reasonable price. The also have great boiled seafood when in season. My favorite is there fried fish platter it's never strong and very large filets.

There was non seafood items on the menu that... More

Unassuming local place with great seafood. Delicately fried flour only no heavy breading. Fresh seafood. I was very pleasantly surprised. I will definitely go back soon.

Generous portions, everyone's food was good except the fried oysters,they were a bit over fried. Small place but very clean, the service was very good and friendly. Went during the dinner time rush seated a group of 9, no waiting. Definitely recommend.

All food is good. The all you can eat deal is worth it's price. The artichoke appetizer is my favorite. The food has just the right spice to it's flavor. Worth a visit!!
