Good and fresh

Ate here out first night in town. We shared the steamed platter for two. It was a huge amount of food and we enjoyed it all. Highly recommend.

Great service, fresh seafood. I love the way they split the back of the shrimp shells. Make them easy to peel and it lets more seasoning get inside. The crab meat comes right out of the legs. I only had one section out of 2 clusters that wouldn't cooperate. My only disappointment was the sausage. They switched to Conecuh. I... More

We loved this food. We ate outside and had the shrimp and crab leg clusters. Best seafood we had all week. Very good price, $14.99 for a wonderful "low country boil" type meal.

Great restaurant a short block from the beach. Lots of room, Good service, wonderful food. I had a steamed seafood platter half and half of oysters and Royal Reds, which are a very tasty variety of shrimp from deep In The Gulf of Mexico.

We ordered a take out tray, crab legs and shrimp. The sea food was excellent!!!! The only thing I was a little disappointed about was there was only maybe a third ear of corn. However, that's not what we ordered it for but it was included in the tray. Highly highly recommend the sea food!!

Great dinner here! We had oysters, mussels, crab cake Julie, and some steamed plates (with reds). Service was great (thank you Jamie!). I would definitely return. The seafood was cooked well, the snow crab clusters were big, and whew, the reds were ginormous! The bushwacker was also tasty. Great meal.

2 years ago ate here. Baked oysters with fresh minced garlic and freshly grated Parmesan. Oysters size of 50 cent coins. Last night oysters size of dimes, stuck to shells, dusted with garlic salt and dried Parmesan from a shaker. Aweful. $20 wasted. Waitress unconcerned, poor food, poor service. Will not waste my $$ again.

Not good. The service was terrible. And food was just as bad. I have crab cakes and they were not even done. And had shrimp and corn in them....

Our waitress was TiffanyD! She was great. The food was soo good! It came out fast and was well worth the price (which by the way isn't expensive at all for good seafood! ) We found our "go to" restaurant for every time we're in town!
