The seafood selections are fresh and certainly well prepared. Both innovative seafood creations and the usual steamed fare. All seating is around a bar and the "call ahead" reservation that they claimed held no benefit to avoiding a wait. The bar seating certainly isn't everyone's idea of a relaxing dinner experience as the focus is on the wait staff scurrying... More

Don't bring kids - all seating is around the bar, it's no place for kids. The iced tea is fresh, the beer is cold, the desserts are great and the wait staff are excellent! I am always amazed at how easily they serve the crowd and keep smiles on their faces. It is the freshest seafood you can get in... More

This place may be a bit pricey to some but the seafood is so fresh. Crab legs are great on Tuesday night ! Some of the best shrimp and grits in the area. Place is too small, and i wouldn't take kids there. Not a place if you are looking for a great atmosphere but def a place if you... More

For the most part was good. Menu was a little restricted. I felt rushed because seating is so limited and there were soooooo many people waiting for a seat. We didn't know it was AYCE crab legs. They were pricey but good. I was very disappointed they didn't have fried shrimp. The garlic shrimp were extremely garlicky which was fine... More

This place is basically a family tradition for us. All the seating is bar style, so don't expect to sit around a family table eating oysters. The bar seating is one of the best parts of the atmosphere though. We try to go at least a few times every oyster season and can finish off about a peck each. Oysters... More

The food is delish here and fresh! You get all the slaw and potatoes you can possibly eat, but be careful not to fill up on those so you can't enjoy the great seafood. Everybody sits at the bar which is huge. If you have a large group, it might take a while to be seated but it's worth it.... More

Monday's are either 25 cent oysters or 50 cents. These guys have specials like these all week long. The shrimp and grits is very good as well. Make sure you get there right at 5 or before or you will be waiting. They also have a shrimp special and crab legs special certain nights of the week. The seating is... More

Casual atmosphere with bar style seating. The service is always very helpful and friendly! Food tastes fresh from the ocean! They have homemade fresh deserts...yum! This is our first choice for seafood and fun with friends. We have been there many times and never disappointed.

Great food always, and good atmosphere. My 7 yr old son loves sitting up at the bar! Service is good and everything is freshly made. All u can eat crab legs are the best flavour I have had in a long time.
