The food is always great and we have always enjoyed ourselves here. It is a regular stop when in the area. You should make it yours too!

I was not impressed with the food but the service was good. The food was just like any where else. It wasn't anything different then what most restaurants in the area served. Nothing special to make it stand out! Just a well known name that didn't live up to it's original spender!

We loved this place. Great family atmosphere. Had baked oysters. Shrimp and cheese grits, out of this world. Baked fish. Great service . Oh yeah. Cheesecake and key line pie were excellent. Give it a try

Food portions were huge, but no that great. Hubby had fried shrink and said it tasted like frozen and pre packaged. I had crab cakes that were mostly breading and very lite crab. Best part was our waitress. She was fun. Be prepared to wait at least 30 min.

We decided to go here on our last night in town. We were not disappointed. Everything that was brought to the table was amazing. We ended our vacation with a bang. The service was also top notch.

Very good seafood at great prices, on the "bay". Can be very crowded and parking is tight, but the food makes up for it.

We arrived on a saturday night around 7:30 (prime dinner time). Our wait was surprising only about 45 minutes. They give you a buzzer and you are free to walk the cute little shops in the same shopping center. The food was really good! We had a dozen oysters on the half shell, their cheesy grits (i couldn't stop eating... More

This was my 3rd time at this restaurant since visiting the area and I would first like to say our waiter Buster B was excellent. Everything he recommended was good. I had crab legs with turnip greens and cheese grits which was very good. My husband and I tried the alligator bites with the tiger sauce was delicious, the sauce... More
