My wife had stuffed shrimp (5) and I had stuffed snapper. Both were OK but nothing special. Restaurant is okay for families with small children but not for romantic or quiet dinners for two. Also, for the casual atmosphere of this restaurant, $3.50 for a...More

We love this place. Sitting outside on the deck makes it even better. Staff is always so friendly. It is always one of the best steaks I have while on our week long vacation. The hushpuppies are to die for! Try hard not to eat...More

Delicious hush puppies, Sara J's special seafood platter was enough to share, and the outside area was delightful at sunset! We would recommend this place.

We arrived by 5:30 and we're seated immediately. We had a beautiful view of the inlet for dinner. Prices are extremely high. Kids meals were $8!!! I would recommend the fried shrimp and cheese grits!

This is one of my favorite seafood restaurants. I always try to visit when we're in the area. The shrimp never disappoints! I tried the cheese grits as a side this time. They were great! Better go early!

This is a busy place! We also visited at the height of travel season, so we were prepared to wait. The restaurant was loud because it was busy. Our food was well cooked and enjoyed by our party. Portions were adequate except for the special...More

Went to visit friends and Sara J's was recommended for dinner. Anticipated a wait but was pleasantly surprised when out projected 20 minute wait was only ten minutes. Now, I'm a relatively new fan of shrimp and grits and have had it at a number...More
