We had dinner here sat night - shrimp and grits were great with a side of green beans and corn bread on every table! The only issue was the side salad was chewy so they took it off the bill! The crab bisque was delicious!

Broiled catfish had zero flavor and had to be smothered in lemon to have a taste. Fried flounder was just average. The vegetable medley was not great at all. The seasoning was mediocre at best and the veggies were barely cooked. But the corn bread...More

When i go to the beach and eat at a seafood restaraunt I expect to have choices of local seafood. Stopped in for a late lunch and the specials were not available.
