Score! Started with crab claws, fantastic. Then we moved to the whole Stuffed Flounder and the Shrimp and Grits. Both cooked and seasoned perfectly. Ended up taking another order of claws home for a snack. Our server Demi did an awesome job.... Ask for her. RTR

We stop in here on our annual Florida trip. The staff is always friendly, neat decor, fun tidbits on the wall to look at, overlooking water where you may see a gator or two. Food is great and authentic.

We had an awesome time our waiter was Sommer. Who made our visit even better. The grilled oysters are the best I've ever eaten.
