Great place with a casual atmosphere. The service was good and we enjoyed the seafood there. Definitely a stop to make when you're in Norfolk.

It was wonderful. Two of had fried combination platter. One had steamed combo. Hush Puppies and sides were great. Good selection of beer on tap along with cider.
