If fresh seafood, cooked to perfection is what you're looking for, this is the place! The best seats in the house are at the expansive bar overlooking marshes with a sunset in view. The Charleston and Savannah baked oysters are awesome!!

Very good oysters but my grouper and other seafood was extraordinary. Also the view of the water is exceptional. Great diverse menu. Even if there were something mediocre on menu, I don't think one would ever notice it because of the surroundings

The food was great. We really enjoyed the combination of sea food! In fact, we even had some to take home for lunch. The ambiance was lovely, surrounded by water. Could see folks fishing.

We sat outside and enjoyed the sunset. Service was a little slow, but they comped the desert without being asked. All in all we will go back.

Food & service was good but I ordered the Low Country Boil & it was served in a bucket. I'm from the Northeast so maybe I just don't get it but I thought it was a very expensive restaurant to be serving dinner this way....More
