Nothing Fancy--but good food

nice down-home cooking at this restaurant. not a lot of 'nicer' restaurants in town so we stopped here with a customer. Calimari appetizer was excellent. Steak cooked to order and sides were a good portion and had good flavor. It was a good chioce for us!

We stopped here on our way to Tennessee. The food was good but service was slow. Would be willing to eat here again if I am ever in the area.

This was by far the slowest service we've ever had at a restaurant. The food was not good. The "blackened" Mahi Mahi was not seasoned and it seemed more like cod. The other fish we had was more seasoned, but overwhelmingly fishy tasting. The fried green tomatoes had no seasoning and the breading was awful; it was super thick. Finally,... More

A major disappointment after reading their online menu and what was really on their menu. Was looking for my favorite. grouper which was on the online menu but not on the menu in the place. Also asked about a dessert and the results were the same. Several reviews mentioned the problem of a long wait, this was not the case,... More

Seriously the worst food either my husband or I have ever been served. Neither of us could eat it. The fish is either thickly battered and deep fried so you don't know what it is or if broiled, it is covered in a peppery spice mix that is all you will taste. The macaroni and cheese was OK but the... More

Passing through Lake City and looking for Seafood for Lenten Friday. Lunch specials until 4 p.m. Flounder and Shrimp with 2 sides, $9.99. Hearty portions offered, broiled, fried, or blackened. Lightly breaded thin pieces of flounder with medium size shrimp was hot and fresh. Environment not so welcoming. Dark, worn tables and chairs, paper placemats, sauces at the table. Fast... More

This was some of the worst seafood I have ever had anywhere in the country. The fish was not prepared correctly, asked for no pepper and it was loaded with it.
