Good Food

Food was great, no complaints from our table. The food came out fast, hot and fresh. Service was great also. Rave reviews for the shrimp and deviled crab! A little pricey but still delicious. We will return to this restaurant.

We wanted to find a place close to our hotel that served some local seafood and some cold pints. This is a great spot for both. Very friendly waitstaff and reasonably priced seafood. Lots of items on the menu to please every taste.

Service was good, food came out fast. My wife had the grilled shrimp, and said it was very good, just the right amount of seasoning. I had the fried shrimp, lightly breaded, and was good. The hush puppies were also good along with the French fries that were also batter dipped. Interesting decor, diving helmets and old outboard boat motors... More

This was the third place we ate on the island. The fresh seafood was great as well as the service. Highly recommend it to anyone on the island. It was a short walk from our room at he K&P Resort so it also made it easy to get there.

Reasonable price for great seafood. All who attended the event hosted here were happy and full. The grouper fingers were particularly delicious.
