We tried getting in for dinner at 6 PM on a Saturday in September and learned it would be a 2 hour wait, so we headed back Sunday at 5 PM and got right in. We enjoyed the cheerful wait staff and a delicious appetizer of fresh mussels. My husband had the halibut with a macadamia crust for his main... More

Arriving ahead of our hosts on Long Beach Island, we found this spot for lunch. We had wonderful soft shell crab and oyster po-boy sandwiches. Very fresh ingredients. Friendly service. It is a fish market too. The restaurant section has only 15 tables. In season, we understand there is always a wait, but on this September Friday, there was no... More

Scallops - sweet as candy. Crab cakes - full of crab, little filler. Mussels - like butter. Consistent, fresh and flavorful take out. Fried items are never greasy.

Nothing fancy but the food is terrific. About 15 tables/booths with nautical motif. Attached to seafood market. Even for weekday lunch we waited 30 minutes.....but worth the wait! Had local sea scallops with two sides at market price $27.99. Got cole slaw and onion rings (3). Kinda wish I had selected fries after seeing chunky fries with skin on. Next... More

The clams in wine and garlic were outrageously good. The fish is fresh and well-prepared. We waited almost an hour but the clams made it worth the wait.

This place is take out and casual restaurant. They owe several restaurants on the island. However, I have NEVER had a better meal than at the restaurant Last week bought swordfisdh and bought it home. It was moist and so tasty. Coleslaw is good too....can not go wrong.

We usually stop here for take out, the fish is fresh and there is a nice variety. We have eaten both lunch and dinner here as well, it's a little noisy but the food is well prepared and the service is quick. Nice for a family.
