Great food! Waitress was very friendly. Blackened chicken tacos were very good and flavorful! Would definitely go back!

It was good but a little greasy. Much better than other places.
It's on the Sound not the Gulf. There was a lovely breeze. The wait staff was very nice and friendly.

We were seeking a local "joint" and found it here. That's to be interpreted as a compliment! We loved it. Great personal service; thank you Cory. The fried green tomatoes with pork on top...really a good appetizer. We had 4 different selections from the menu, all thoroughly enjoyed. Hush puppies really good as was the cole slaw. We wondered why there wasn't a line and wait but were glad there wasn't. May even go back during our next 4 days here instead of experience some of the other fine dining options available.

We went here for our Anniversary due to the rating and so thankful that we did. We sat on the outside near the water at sunset. The view was amazing. Our server was on top of things. He was attentive and never let our drinks run out. We got a platter and added a soft shell crab to it. The food was hot and tasted great. We will definitely come back. A must stop for everyone.
