Same woman had to check customers in, take them to table, bus the tables, and be the cashier. It was very crowded and she was running all over. Then, when paying bill was charged (different person at the register then) 19% tax!!!! Wow. Servings very ample, OK taste. Many senior customers.

We've visited many times and always had great food and great service. The value is great. So much food for so little $$$. Everything we've had has been absolutely delicious. The sides are great, too. The greens and the grits are especially good. The atmosphere leaves a LOT to be desired, but the food more than makes up for it.

I have eaten 20 times at the old location and it was fabulous every time,this is an entirely different place. I ordered the red snapper grilled and my wife got the grilled shrimp. Both tasted exactly the same like they were grilled on a 50 year old grill that had never been cleaned and the topping poured on top tasted... More

So far, one of the best sea food places in Gainesville in my opinion. Prices are reasonable, portions are great and the staff is very friendly. High recommendation.

This is our go-to place when we want seafood at a reasonable price. The place is rather small, and the waiting line can get really long. We've found that it is best to go early, between 5-5:30. Otherwise, be prepared to wait.

I love their shrimp all ways but especially fried. They are lightly battered and cook perfect every time I eat at one of their locations. I also love their cheese grits, just like home.

My wife's aunt took us to dinner here on our visit. I had the baked stuffed flounder...which I could not finish. My wife tried it and said it was good, as I thought. She had calamari and a salad which she enjoyed, and aunt Charlotte had 2 stuffed crab shells. A pitcher of a nice amber beer was $7, and... More
