Not at all fancy. The waitresses are cute and friendly if not attentive. Skip the "white fish" and order the shrimp.

Stopped in for dinner on our first day at the beach. My wife had the steamed shrimp and I had the grilled shrimp. Both were really good with great service. Been eating there for years and never had a bad meal.

The menu did not include adequate food descriptions.. I ordered the shrimp tacos and expected usual... More

I was very disappointed with the food at the Shrimp basket; might as well have been called the grease basket. My wife and I split an order of fish that came with hush puppies and fritters. The white fish was literally dripping in grease and I got one fritter with my meal. I'm sure this doesn't happen all the time,... More

The service was poor and the sides all taste the same. We had the fish fry with baked potato salad, and coleslaw. The baked potato salad and slaw both tasted the same, could have used some seasoning. The tarter sauce was homemade and GOOD!! The restaurant could use a good scrubbing, very dusty!!! That was the turn off.

Nice establishment. Busy, but quick. Our family sat on the patio, which was crowded; some may find this discomforting, but people lovers will enjoy the proximity. Our waiter was prompt and welcoming, always checking our waters and asking how things were. Food was out within 10 minutes. I ordered the grilled combo platter: shrimp and whitefish, with yellow rice as... More

Small, crowded but efficient. Had the fried shrimp and it was wonderful. Batter didn't overpower shrimp. We will be back!!!
