Have been to their location on the intercostal but never at the location on the waterfront in Southport. How can you beat a crab cake sand which and an Ice cold Pacifico . My girl had a special which was 20 of the biggest peel and eat shrimps I ever ate and a crab cake for 8.95. Great place for... More

We stopped in to a quick lunch and almost froze while eating! My husband had the shrimp special with crab cake. The shrimp was perfect, the crab cake not so much. It didn't look like something either of us wanted to try! I had the grouper salad sandwich. I really had a hard time keeping the salad in the bun.... More

You wait in line to order, but it moves fast. Steamed shrimp are huge and seasoned well. Crab cakes and cucumber salad were delicious. Their burgers were good too. Great views while you eat.

This is a fun place with good food. Stand in line and order up; everything on the menu is good but I really like the grouper sandwich. Help yourself to what you want to drink and let them know what you had (and how many) when you pay. What a great way to run things. On a warm day you... More

My favorite place in Southport! You gets your drinks out of a cooler, go through a line to order and wait a short bit while your food is being cooked. The steamed shrimp and crab cake is very good. Drinks are on an honor system, you tell the cashier what drinks you had when you pay at the end. Beautiful... More
