I had the pink snapper! Wow so fresh! Husband had shrimp, great Alesia, but he tasted my snapper and wished he had ordered that. Fried squash and coleslaw wonderful.

We ate here, because of the other trip advisor reviews. It was pretty packed when we got there, around 6:00pm on a Saturday night. We had to sit at a dirty table to get a seat, but it was cleared pretty quickly. The waitresses were very sweet and friendly. The food was just okay. My husband ordered fish and shrimp,... More

Quite a surprise in a small town. Food was fresh, hot, and reasonably priced. Loved the squash fritters. Definitely will return.

A great place to eat and catch fresh seafood on your plate. Hush puppies good, fried squash great, cole slaw best I've had, Fried Catfish was tender and perfect, no need for their tasty homemade tartar sauce. Of course the sweet tea was fresh. A fresh lemon slice would have perfected my tea, but no loss. Waitress was friendly and... More

Great seafood, always fresh and cooked just right. Small dining room but the food makes it worth it. As good as I have had anywhere at the beach. I have dined here many times and always look forward to going back

This little hole-n-the-wall doesn't look like much from the outside, but the jumbo fried shrimp, hush puppies and slaw I just had were much better than some of the higher priced seafood restaurants where I've eaten. Food was HOT, freshly prepared and service was great. But as others have mentioned, all food is fried unless you pay $2 extra for... More

Stopped here on our way through. The tilapia and catfish were fresh and tasty. Paid the $2 surcharge to have it sauteed (all other options are deep fried). The sides (potato salad, fries, green beans, boiled potatoes) were bland. There appeared to be one waitress for the 15-20 tables. The place was packed at 5:30 on Friday and clearly popular... More

Not bad, if you want fried everything. Shrimp and scallops under cooked. Lots of salt little else. Asked for lemon with our water, told it was in the yellow squeeze bottle. Could of been better with a local beer, but alas -- no beer.... All in it could have been much worse.

If you're looking for Calabash-style seafood, this is it! In fact I can't think of a place in Calabash, NC that even comes close for the price and quality. No a big place, but definitely worth a detour off of I-95.
