One of our favorite places to eat every summer. Family owned and such a friendly staff. We love their fried oysters, fish sandwich, and kids menu is wonderful! We love stopping here year after year and supporting this honest little seafood market!

Excellent, fresh seafood. I had the shrimp plate and a family member had the Obama burger which they loved. The owners were very friendly and suggested other places for us to visit on the island.

This is straight from the sea to your plate type of place and it is well worth stopping by and filling up those hungry kids after spending a day at the beach. Inexpensive, quality and family- focused, I'd definitely put it on the list for...More
