Good Food

We were a party of four adults. Shrimp, Grouper, grits, corn on cob, cole slaw. All the food was great and the atmosphere was very local feeling. The service was a little slow but adequate at best. I would return and I would recommend anyone that likes fresh seafood with a local flair to go... read more

We love this place. The Poseys are super nice and run a tight ship. Food is always fresh and we especially like the lunch specials -- fast and delicious. When it's crowded, it can get a little loud, but still worth the visit.

The food is almost decent but it's the same junk you get everywhere around here. ALL the positive reviews are from family and friends of this place. Do not be fooled. It was a crab house 20 years ago and they never changed a thing about it. It looks exactly the same. How do I know? I was practically raised... More

When you see the locals eating there-it tells you something. Great food at a great price!!! Oysters were Great, Crab cakes the freshly made. I had mine blackened. Many other places were out of things-not this place. If you looking at atmosphere-don't go.

This restaurant is BASIC in decor, but the food is THE REASON! We had aligator bits, soft-shelled and crab cake (HUGE). All were fine. The service was prompt although we were early for dinner and almost the only patrons.

Though we had been to this area many times, this was our first visit to Posey's. They had been recommended to us by several people over the years and we decided to give them a try. We were not disappointed. The food was absolutely wonderful. We had the stuffed grouper, fried oysters and crabcakes which were all superb. The coleslaw... More

I really hate it when things change for the worse. We've been visiting Posey's for more than two decades, and we remember it at its prime, when Mr. Posey (we assume that's who it is) was there all the time, the wait staff were competent and friendly, the food was all great, and they had the best fried shrimp in...
