The food was great but the atmosphere left a little to be desired. Very casual, bar type seating looking into the kitchen. Cooks were very casually attired with no hairnet over pony tails. Watched them pour frozen items into the fryer ... I don't know-...More

Shopped around and got takeout crabs, shrimp, fried oysters and hush puppies from here. It was all excellent. Make sure you reserve crabs at least a day in advance.
