All the food is great! Hushpuppies are the best I have ever eaten in a restaurant, and they have very good greens, sweet potato casserole and clam chowder. Best seafood in Gainesville.

The menu was more extensive then I thought and had read on line they didn't serve alcohol when they served beer and wine. I ordered the fried clam strips. The clams were fried very lightly, very easy to chew , not tough at all and very tasty. Huge amount with great sweet hush puppies and wonderful cole slaw. My son... More

Early and still quite a crowd. Expectations high as we are greeted just inside the door. First impression is the restaurant could use a reno. All tables and chairs were clean but are well used. It doesn't help that the waitress' abuse them by dragging them around and pushing them together like if they don't hurry the customer will leave.... More

The food was good, not great. I had the special, which was flounder and shrimp. The collards tasted canned and were very mildly seasoned. The prices are reasonable. We would return.

Always enjoy great food here, service is good, prices very reasonable. Only problem is limited seating on weekends, usually a 40-60 minute wait most of Sunday, but weekdays are fine. Most of Saturday is ok too, just 15 min wait. Excellent seafood. Probably best prices for a seafood restaurant in Gainesville.

This place does fried best but unlike my husband I order my fish broiled or slightly blackened (just be sure to ask for it to be "dry" - as they will load it with oil). Hush puppies are awesome and you must try their lima beans .

Great fresh seafood at a reasonable price. Stewed tomatoes and okra are the BOMB, best I have ever tasted in a restaurant. Server Brandon is the best!!!

Reasonable and reliable seafood, generous portions of fried shrimp, skimpy serving of grilled shrimp but delicious.
