This is one happy place. The staff headed by the owner is very friendly. The food is eclectic and the menu is very extensive. There will certainly be something to suit anybody's taste. It is out there in the boondocks which makes it even remarkable that such an excellent restaurant exists. It has a very large clientele and everybody walks... More

My wife and I ate here and overall really enjoyed our meal. Started with crab cake and also crab soup appetizers. Crab cake was good. soup was great. Had grilled chinese noodle seafood and grilled grouper for entrees. Chinese dish was plentiful and very good. Grouper was overcooked and just ok. Portion seemed a little small for the price and...

We've eaten here with local friends several times. It's the only game in town, but always fun and filling. It's a meat and potatoes kind of place, with fresh fish and seafood in abundance. There were several interesting sounding items on the menu, such as a woodfired forest mushroom tart with morel truffled cream, but we stuck with the basics... More

We went for an early anniversary dinner. If you want to go for tender steaks, definitely get a steak. The portions are generous. The crab cheese dip was wonderful. I have heard that the seafood portions are smaller but the yummy bread will more than make up for that.

Nice service, but some of the worst meals we have ever (not) eaten. Out of six entrees, only the salad was edible. We went for BBQ, and waitress warned us NOT to order it because its sauce was so bad. Go figure?

Over priced, below average food. Went by this place on a previous trip, said if I made it back to this area I would try it. All I can say is don't go out of your way to try this place out.

Stopped in for a late lunch. We had the 3 meat platter, ribs park and beef smothered in a BBQ sauce( I would call a red gravy) it was quite tasty but there are so many choices .I would try a different selection next time. The bread was delicious. The server very friendly.

We went to Cuz'z with our family and some friends. I was especially impressed the extent of the menu selections. Food choices from all over the world. The owners travel quite often, I'm told. And when hey travel, they collect recipes to take home. Case in point, my husband and I each had a seafood bowl that was really wierd,... More

Hard to find as strangers in the area coming from the north to meet up with locals who know their way around. Beer and wine service ($7 each) but no hard liquor. We aren’t quite sure what the hub- bub is about except that “dining options are limited” as someone put it to me. The cole slaw, served with each... More
