Had the fried oysters and shrimp-very delicious & got my money's worth. Was going to order soft shell crab but it was a bit overpriced ($12 for one?). Would definitely return here.

I am not sure how this was rated so highly to be ranked one of the better restaurants in the area. There is really nothing wrong with it, and yet, it certainly wasn't outstanding. The hushpuppies were cold, and a little rubbery. If you do...More
