Good food, good location, decent prices. Servers were attentive. Had 2 for 1 drinks for the dads and kids ate free. Kids loved the hush puppies for an appetizer.

We passed by this restaurant and since we saw it was pretty full, we assumed the food to be good. Yes, it was delicious! Especially the clam chowder soup was excellent! Service was also good. We should be back!

This is located right next to the fishing charter marina. It has a wide selection of very good food. The decor was fun and interesting. Really liked the fact that you could bring in any fish you caught and they would cook it.

We stopped there because of previous experience with the restaurant. We were not disappointed. We had the fish and chips basket and the food was done very well and quite tasty. The fish was white and flaky, the fries were nicely seasoned with the skins on them, and the coleslaw was very juicy and flavorful. The restaurant has a bar... More
