The 5 fried oysters in our entrees were excellent. The vegetable was an excellently prepared brocollitini. Draft beer was great. Cheerful and prompt service. We'll be back the next time we're in the area!

We had a fantastic lunch here. Seafood was really good and they had good options for kids who were not into seafood. Get a bloody mary...it's almost a meal in itself.
