The family really liked this place, the kids are really picky eaters and I heard no complaints from either of them the entire meal. Good burger too!

Couldn't ask for better food. Loved the fried white fish and the service was on point. Stop in for any meal and be amazed. We loved our whole experience.

Visited on a slow Tuesday night (now that all the tourists are gone) Service was decent. I had the blackened catfish that came with fries and cole slaw. Fries were good. Cole slaw was average. Blackened catfish came in 4 pieces, not a filet. 1 of the 4 pieces was very rubbery. To the point I unable to eat it.... More

We went there with some out of town family, and myself and husband did not think this was the best seafood we have eaten mine was not cooked all the way, Wolf bay Lodge on county Rd 20 has them beat by far a lot better food and prepared better and cost lest not very happy at all.

We were seated quickly as we arrived close to 5. It was all you can eat Shrimp night. Guess what we had. . .Shrimp! I love the coating they cook the Shrimp in. They really know how to cook shrimp. Seating is tight, but it works. Staff very friendly and quick. Enjoyed our meal very much.

The Fried Shrimp Basket or the Fried Oyster Basket was well worth the trip. Each basket gave you a dozen and they were large and fresh cooked. The price was worth it also, $11.99. Compared to other seafood restaurants this is outstanding.
