This was our first visit. Given the name of the restaurant, I expected to have a delicious dinner. We enjoyed the complimentary hush puppies with the honey spread. The clam chowder was good. The menu includes a wide variety of seafood entrees. There are also...More

Unless it’s fried... really fried... or covered in butter. The wait was not long. They said 30 and it was more like 15 minutes. The decor was dated 80’s beach town style at best. When we sat down we were automatically given two bowls of...More

I'm not much on giving a bad review but this is going to be a mix of good and bad. I really enjoyed my dinner, Scallop and Shrimp, I think maybe one Scallop was over cooked and the rest were perfect, the Shrimp were perfectly...More

I would say a full menu with seafood mostly but other items as well. I ordered the grilled grouper and it was very good. The hushpuppies they bring out are so good I could not stop eating them.
