We loved this place because it's got a lot of local charm. Nothing fancy to look at, but the seafood was delicious. A friendly place, too. We talked to a local couple from Tallahassee who come down regularly to eat and felt at home, even though we're from Illinois!

We stopped in for lunch and really enjoyed it. My wife loved the selection of vegetables along with her oyster por boy. I had a shrimp and oyster mix that was very good.

Place was pretty busy, so we took a seat at the bar and placed our order a few minutes later. Our waitress (along with the other waitresses) was super friendly, felt as though we'd been here a dozen times. Being on vacation, a well known local, Hollis, took a seat next to us with a ton of information to make... More

Unassuming exterior; very casual interior. Don't expect elegance. Just expect to join both locals and visitors in the enjoyment of seafood. Steamed oysters were superb. (We got them just in time on a Sunday afternoon. Diners who arrived mid-afternoon learned that the oysters had sold out.) Flounder and the shrimp entrees were good. All food seemed very fresh. Service was... More

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 and enjoy.

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.

Oyster poboy and soft shell crab sandwich are recommended! Took it to go so not certain about the atmosphere.
