Great lunch place

I love fresh burgers and they have wonderful ones. The sides are unusual, fried okra, fresh veggies, slaw in addition to 3 kinds of potatoes. Friendly, lots of my friends like their seafood as well. Try it, you will like it. Bob Ross

Dinner in the restaurant was very fresh seafood, excellent in quality and quantity and cooked to perfection. Kara, our waitress in the restaurant was awesome. The pineapple and nut pie was great too. Daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner specials are available. Breakfast was good and included large portions of food at a great price. The dinning room facing the ocean... More

We had the sea trout special. My filets were loaded with bones. Hubby's weren't. Cole slaw contained sweet pickles which I didn't care for. Hush puppies were good. The place was a little too busy for the amount of staff on duty. I would avoid the sea trout and slaw. Cheesecake was good. Pineapple nut pie interesting but not light... More

This hotel and restaurant have been locally owned and operated for at least 30 years. I've never stayed in the hotel but I can tell you the restaurant is excellent!! We have gone there off and on over the years and have never been disappointed. The food is great as well as the service staff!!

Scallops were bad. Waitress was very gracious and offered something to replace the scallops. We returned the scallops and brought us oysters. Most of the oysters were good, a few were watery. Clam strips were over cooked. The coleslaw was sweet, not exactly what I'm used to. The collards were very good. The best things were the waitress and the... More

Looked at the good reviews and decided to give this place a try. From what I am told it is a local place to eat. We had a a bigger group of 10 people with us. The food for a big group came out rather quick for a large group. I was quite pleased with the food. I got the... More

There is a different special every night, but Mondays are fried oysters, so that's when I go. Seems like everyone else does, too. Even going after Labor Day, I always end up waiting for a seat, but it is worth it. I have never gotten bad oysters here.
