What a great restaurant right on the water. Now mind you, you drive up to it and it looks like a dump. But the food is great. The owner goes out in the wee hours of the morning and catches the fish of the day....More

We thought the food here was great but don't go there if you're in a hurry. This is a mom and pop restaurant where the wife does the cooking, the husband catches the seafood, and the daughter waits on tables. I'm not a big hushpuppies...More
