Very popular casual dining destination for locals like me and visitors too. Nestled in a neighborhood near downtown Waynesville. Wide menu, good service, reasonable prices, plenty of on-site parking. I particularly like their tasty, well prepared seafood gumbo.

Stopped in for lunch. Got the flounder sandwich. Service was quick and food was good. No complaints. Good alternative to fast food. Would recommend .

Just your regular run of the mill seafood restaurant. Not bad, but nothing special. Probably would not go here again.

Pricey but worth it. Service is excellent. I go with friends, family and alone. We usually choose this place if we are celebrating something special. Been here many times.

Come join us at our new location just off of the Great Smoky Mountain Expressway (US Hwy 23) and see what everyone is talking about. From our full bar including beer and wine to appetizers, delicious entrees, and our house-made desserts, we are proud to serve you with our courteous wait staff in comfortable dining. We serve weekday lunch specials, and our full menu every evening and weekends with a special Sunday brunch.
