If you like fried seafood with friendly service, no atmosphere and very reasonable prices this is the place. They also have a location in Daphne, AL on HWY 98 near Interstate 10. You cannot go wrong with either location. They offer a variety of dishes with many choices for shrimp, oysters, fish, etc. In my view the one thing that... More

Not gourmet...just good old fashioned fried fish done in a light batter and plenty of it! Seems to me that over the years they have just gotten better,,,certainly busier which means fresher fish. My wife never gets anything but a shrimp poboy. Mac and cheese is a good side..when they have it. There is a board with specials!.. Lots of... More

This small family restaurant has good fish, oysters and shrimp. I don't find the gumbo very good, but other folks seem to like it. Portions are not huge, but generous enough and fresh tasting.

You can't go wrong with all the seafood. It's very casual dining where you place your order. The fried oysters rock!

I think they have decent prices to match decent food but it's a family flourescent lights type place and not really a date night place. We mostly get it to go tho.

One of the best for freshest food, the Grilled Shrimp Salad with their homemade house dressing is fantastic. Sometimes they feature Red Beans N Rice which is also some of the best around as well. You will enjoy their food.......!

Having a great love of southern food, seafood and related type cuisines, we had been told that this was by far the best place to get gumbo. If you've spent any time in this area, just about every single restaurant claim to have the best shrimp, the best oysters, the best gumbo. In fact a place by the name of... More
