Great place for good food and drinks. Stacie is wonderful behind the bar, everyone is friendly and the food is great. Raw and steamed oysters in season, stuffed soft shelled crabs and a great quesadilla.

What a pleasant find. I had the soft shell crab burger, a first for me, being a fan of SS Crab. The house fries were great and the butter cake is a must, worth the extra mile you will need to walk it off :)
