Good eats

I went here for lunch with my kids on a trip to the area. Everyone liked their food. The seating was nice with views of the water. I ordered a bucket of crab and shrimp. I liked it. The server was also very nice. Well done.

We were looking for something new and decided to try this. I am very impressed with the family Atmosphere. It's like a local diner stuck in the middle of a bunch of Comercial places. My wife and I had the Grouper Pot Pie. Unbelievably Good. My son had the fried shrimp and a $1.99 Ceasars Salad. The tasty Margaritas are... More

The food was delicious and the service was spectacular. The steampots have a TON of food in them and are VERY reasonably priced. My husband had the shrimp/crawfish steampot that had a 1/2 lb of peel and eat shrimp and 1/2 lb of crawfish with coleslaw, red potatoes, and corn on the cob for only $15.00! Shrimp tacos are amazing... More

We walked right past this place at first. It is sort of hidden away beside a better known establishment. I'm glad we came here! Fantastic oysters at great prices. The clam chowder is thick, as it should be. The grouper pot pie is huge and some of the best food I've had in the cape. Great food and very reasonable... More

Great grouper sandwich with a generous portion of fish and thick- cut fries. Very tasty. Disappointing cup of lobster chowder which had the consistency of paste, flavorless, with minute pieces of lobster a nd worst of all served lukewarm. Pass on this house specialty. Although the restaurant was practically empty during lunch time, our waitress seemed anxious to see us... More

Ruth, if there's one thing we are proud of, it's our lobster chowder, so we are terribly disappointed to hear that our house specialty you received was anything less than delicious.

We normally frequent another restaurant close by and happened to give this place a try. Hadn't really noticed it before. I am glad we did. They had an oyster special when we were there and they were delicious. Great view of the water. We could not have asked for better service. Will definitely be back.
