We enjoyed a few drinking at the bar overlooking Shem Creek before we decided to grab a table and enjoy some great seafood. All of the food was fresh to taste and nothing was lacking. Great place to eat!

Restaurant is on the Shem Creek. We saw a dolphin and a beautiful sunset. Food was just ok but our server was friendly and eager to please.
