Oysters are ready.

Best price on oysters on the half shell. Mid-size, salty, and crisp. Pair with their southern fish basket for more than you can eat.

Food, although reasonably priced, was fair to average. Six of us eating with 6 different entrees. Good review on the shrimp and grits. Greek fish salad was awful . Tables are crammed together to the point that food might have been better served family style. Restrooms were outside (like you find in old gas stations) but surprising clean and well... More

Great seafood. Oysters on the half shell. Big savings for lunch. The lunch specials come with dessert and you have many choices of vegetables too. A busy place in the summer at lunch time.. this is one of may favorite places to eat and I like the informal atmosphere and the service is quick and busy.. Good homemade items too.

I don't know why the parking lot is full. The food is aweful and the service is whacky. While severer placed our food on the table, she related a story about a recused dog she had to pull a collar from beneath it's skin, not the best visual as one is preparing to dine, but then again, maybe she was...

This place doesn't look like much from the outside, but is quite nece inside. I had grilled mahi mahi. It was wonderful. Served with a mango salsa and jalapeno mango chutney. Also had red beans with rice and a salad. All was good.

Read the reviews and gave them a try for lunch. Had the meat loaf sandwich special.It came with Mac and cheese and coleslaw. Meatloaf was very hard and over cooked. Mac and cheese was cold and look like it has been sitting out for days. Coleslaw had no taste what so ever the food was very bad . Service was... More

It is a small restaurant on highway 59 , rather hidden away but worth finding!! Happy hour ALL Day. Try the fried cheesecake w/ homemade pecan praline sauce The staff is very enthusiastic & fun with good advice. The Royal Red shrimp is an adventure.

Food was mediocre and pricey for local shrimp. Shrimp didn't seem to be fresh and tough to peel. Inside was loud and hard to have a conversation.

Mediocre food. Prices are high for food. Too noisy. Too many young kids for a dinner with wife. Very loud. This is off season and could not imagine it being tourist season.
