I often go out of my way to pick-up a fish sandwich or fish dinner. No other sandwiches in town are quite like theirs. They are one of the cleanest seafood restaurants in town!

The Staff was Great! However, the food was terrible. The fish was pulled from a cooler. I did not think anything of it at the time, but when I got home and ate the food. the fish was probably not at the correct temp being that it was sitting in a cooler. No telling how long it sat there. The... More

Great local seafood restaurant!! Locally owned, eat in if you're there by 5:30pm. Food delicious!! Everything is homemade including the coleslaw, hush puppies, tartar sauce, cocktail sauce- all homemade. You get alot of food for a modest amount of money's. The owner will take good care of you!! Great place to go!!!

We stopped here due to the high ratings received. When we arrived to an empty parking lot and lobby at a 24 by 24 foot restaurant we nearly moved on. Knowing what I know now I would have moved on to more upscale locations just down the road. My wife couldn't finish her fish and I didn't care for my... More

To confirm, the food (aside from a few sides and desserts) are all fried. That being said, it's kind of hard to really mess it up or make it all that spectacular. I had the fish dinner for $7.95 (2 pieces of fish, fries, coleslaw, and hush puppies). However, l had a lot of bone in my fish filets which... More

Had lunch here on a rainy Saturday. There are 4 tables inside and 4 picnic tables outside with umbrellas. You order at the counter and they bring your food to the table. Lunch for 5 with drinks was $55. Everyone really liked the food, shrimp poboy, crabcake and shrimp dinner, crab cake sandwich and salmon sandwich. The hush puppies were... More

We were doing business in Hampton Va. and decided to stop at this little restaurant at the corner of Chapel Street and Armistead Ave. We expected it to smell like fish frying and even though it did it was clean inside. You order at the counter and can either sit inside or at tables outside. Small inside and the staff... More

Great small local seafood place. Not fancy. Has a few tables to eat there. Mostly takeout though. Great price, great tasting seafood, plenty of it. People are nice also!

It is a small diner, the food is good and it comes out constantly. Battered and fried, very fresh, it is the way fried fish and seafood should be.
