Have been here numerous times. I have had both lunch and dinner here and Every time has been excellent. From the hushpuppies, to the salad bar, to the main course, great time. I have heard some complain over the wait. Yes, there is a wait at times, having said that, the wait is worth it. The view, the food, and... More

We stopped in to watch football as this place has a view/somewhat and there are a lot of other restaurants here as well as a marsh walkway. We sat at a table in the bar. Our waitress was great and we meet the owner. Drinks were good and cold. We ordered she crab soup which was great. The potato skins... More

We stopped for lunch and chose to eat at the bar. There is an island just outside the windows that they keep goats on. I found that amusing. We both ordered there lunch special of fish and chips. The tasted fine but I think it could have been cooked alittle longer as the breading next to the meat was still... More

Casual dining, nice staff. Good choices of seafood. I had the white fish, my husband had the tuna. Good choices of sides to go with the entrees.

The food is excellent. The chef was named best in SC in 2015. The atomsphere is nice with great views of the Inlet. Service has always been great and the servers are friendly. Many are cllege students. The only caveat is prices have been increasing. If you like seafood this is the place I would reccomend first.

The five of us arrived for seafood or steak. The salad bar was average or so. Hush puppies were a bit sweet. Those of eating fish enjoyed the meal. One of us had the steak and said it was good. We skipped desserts, as the portions were quite large. Ambiance was a bit sketchy. Lots of loud conversations around us.... More

Nice seating in outside deck area. Wait staff very accommodating and quick. Stopped in for Bloody Mary's and apps. Oysters on the half she'll were HUGS, too large for me. Potatoes skins were Luke warm and cheese sticks were cold. Oh well, can't win 'em all BUT we'd return for drinks & view.

"Very good" review is based on the quality of the hushpuppies with honey butter and the raves over the fresh and fried oysters by my husband and daughter. My fried scallops dinner was dismal. Dinner starts with a trip to the salad bar. I am not a fan of salad bars and we rarely see them anymore on the west... More
