Nice meal in friendly surroundings. Of the four entrees chosen, Meatloaf was chosen by three, while I had the fried oysters. Everyone seemed quite pleased with their meatloaf selection, plentiful, good seasoning and cooked nicely but not dried out. The Fried Oysters were exceptional. Worth...More

Such a great location but restaurant so poorly conceived and operated. Bar has a good atmosphere with several TVs but food in restaurant is barely mediocre. With the great views on the water it could be a top notch operation with opportunity to draw crowds...More

We arrived, but snuck out without sitting down! I try to ask patrons who are leaving what they thought of a new (to us) restaurant, and get some tips on ordering. The best response I got here was "it's all right". Hmmmm. We walked in,...More
