We visited on a Saturady afternoon in September. Our food was decent, but our waitress and host were very friendly. Hit the spot, but nothing special.

This place is great for all. We sat inside but definitely will request outside seating next time. The service was a little slow but friendly. Most of our group had crab legs or shrimp. Both were very good. We will return.

The service was slow, and unfriendly. Inside is super loud and annoying because you can't even talk with your table. We asked to be moved outside, and after an eye roll from our waitress, we were seated. The food finally came after 45 minutes, and was absolutely horrible. As close to the ocean as you are, I would assume fresh... More

We ate here close to closing time on a weeknight. The service was great, and the server was friendly and helpful. I had the crab leg dinner. Best crab legs I've had in a while. My husband had shrimp skewers and oysters. He said the were very good. The boiled shrimp appetizer was very good! Huge shrimp and cooked just... More

A group of us visit the gulf coast each fall and this is one of the favorites of our visit. Everyone loved their food! The four of us each ordered different meals and all of us raved about how good it was. I can't even remember all that we were served that evening, but no one was disappointed. The service... More

Our service was slow and bad. Our server seemed indifferent whether we were there or not. Our food was below average. Our first experience at this location, and we will not return.

Ate here in October of 2014 while visiting the area with family. We (four adults) ate here on the last night of our stay and I wish we'd come sooner! I got the coconut shrimp dinner special ($18.99) and it was perfect; crispy and golden brown, and the dipping sauce was delicious. We loved the hush puppies and the fries... More

We ate dinner here one night recently. There were ample tables, but we had to wait to be seated. The problem was that there were a couple of large groups of people dining with apparently not enough staff to handle it. Our food, when it finally arrived was good, although it was not worth the long wait. We do not... More

Got a referral to this restaurant by a local. Food was delicious - hot and yummy! Thanks to Andy for the great and friendly service! Casual environment, perfect after a day at the beach.
