If you are looking for a fancy dining experience, this is not your place. But if good food at a decent price are you can find that here. Food is served on paper plates drinks are self-serve but the food is very good.We had a variety of seafood and bar-b-que.

We enjoyed the restaurant for its different types of foods: BBQ and seafood. Service was a little slow, but there were nine of us for dinner. Both seafood and BBQ dishes were delicious.

Stopped here with only 15 minutes to go before we had an appointment for a wild horse tour. Amazingly, we had a great lunch and were just 5 minutes late for the tour. Fantastic service and great food! Loved the pulled pork and beef brisket sandwiches.

The food was decent...not sure about the get your own beverage from the cooler thing. I like water, and a nice tapped beer...just seemed kind of odd... More

We ate dinner here last night. The service was good, but the prices were outrageous for the quality of food. We had shrimp, the fish special, ribs, and a variety of sides. The shrimp was spicy though not advertised that way. The fish was so-so. The salads were awful, the cole slaw was bland and the fries were greasy. Would... More

Casual--nice servers, great ribs and collards greens, but bathroom and flies need to be managed better.
