YUM!!

We were craving seafood, and even though everything was fried, we had some of the best and freshest tasting seafood: oysters, clams, shrimp and fish - all DELICIOUS! Would eat there again in a heartbeat.

Good thing we arrived early. Fried shrimp and oysters were good and so were the side orders. Friendly atmosphere. I would go again.

After reading many reviews about this restaurant we decided to try it even though the place certainly does not look very appealing from the road. Service was very slow but it was surprisingly busy when we went. We were very disappointed that absolutely everything is deep fried yet advertised as "fresh" (highly doubtful). The food was nothing special and really... More

Stopped at this "hole in the wall" restaurant while staying in town and found a huge surprise. Great food, fair prices and nice employees. The place was busy since they are only open Thursday-Saturday. Seafood was fresh and good quality. Sides weren't the greatest would defiantly recommend.

If it wasn't for people lined up almost to the street you would pass right by this place. Only open Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Fish dinners' around $10.50 and fish sandwich $5.00. Very tender and fresh. You sit at picnic tables in an open air place, not even an eat-in restaurant. no wait staff either but the food is Good.

The fish was good but terribly overpriced for what you received. Couldn't tell difference in taste from Grouper versus the white fish.
