We ate here for dinner on my son's birthday. The atmosphere was underwhelming, as was the service, but our seafood was delicious. Most of the people in our party had fried shrimp or a seafood combo with shrimp, oysters, and scallops. Everyone enjoyed their food,...More

After driving seven hours to Oak Island, we were hungry and tired. Upon arriving at the restaurant, we were told that it would be 25 minutes for a table. Considering that it was Saturday night, we said OK. However, it was very hot (heat advisory)...More

My family and I, a party of 9, came here the week of July 4th - presumably one of the busiest times for local businesses. We sat down an hour after the restaurant opened and were greeted by a kind server. We gave her our...More

The food was inedible. We ordered the broiled scallops and shrimp. The food came out quickly and fresh. However the shrimp turned out to be baby shrimp. The shrimp and scallops had some kind of seasoning on them that ruined it. We used to go...More

My daughter had the crab legs and they were good. My son had the deep fried shrimp and my husband and I had the low country boil. It was okay. Not my favorite place to eat. Friendly and efficient staff. Maybe we just made wrong...More
