We were one of only two parties in the place, which should be forewarned us. Granted, it was late for lunch, 2:30 or so. We went with the special, all you could eat fried trout and popcorn shrimp. The trout was average or below average, the popcorn shrimp was a bit better. The other party complained about their meals and... More

Only ate there one time because the line was too long at the Sanitary down the block. We had fried seafood dinners and the quality was a couple of notches down from what Sanitary serves. Haven't been back.

Only good thing my wife and I have to say about the place is that the waitress was nice. Even the hush puppies were terrible. Should have been first clue that meal would not be any good.

This is a great restaurant if you like coastal atmosphere at its best! It is right on the water. The seafood is great and their famous lemon meringue pie is the best in the area!

one of the things that was fun for the kids was they allow you to feed the sea gulls from their deck. a cook came out and brought the kids a load of hush puppies to feed the gulls. At sanitary, there is a don't feed the gulls sign and they mean it.

We were looking for a place with no wait an that's definitely what we found. At one point, we were the only ones there. Food is mediocre, probably won't go back.

I would recommend to Anyone. My daughter was married Aug. 2nd and we had the reception in their banquet area. Diane (owner) and... More

My mother and I found this place on a Friday during the summer. We arrived around 11:30 am and were curious to find that it was empty, we had our choice of seating. We chose to sit outside on the deck and the server politely offered to have an umbrella put up just for us. It was a beautiful view,... More

Lunch during the week. Something was just wrong with my fish. It did not seem fresh. The staff was friendly but the food was just bad. So many other good choices in the area and we had to waist $25 bucks on a lousy meal.

A group of us ate here this past weekend and chose to sit on the back patio which has a nice view. Our waitress was great and as I said the view was nice but the food was not all that great and for the high price we really expected much more than we received. It's really unfortunate to have...
