I could eat the Hushpuppies all night

This place gets crowded when the Oysters are in season, and peaceful when they are not. There is a lot of seating, so they were able to seclude our large group. The Hushpuppies they served were sweet and addicting, that I could eat them all day and not order anything else. I did end up with some... read more

We eat at T&W on must visits to the area. The catfish nuggets & hushpuppies are wonderful. Service is great even at the busiest time.

The oysters were luke warm and the service was VERY slow. We took family visiting from Illinois for dinner on a Tuesday. Not only was the food disappointing, but we were seated next to a party of 20+, so the noise prohibited any attempt at conversation. It was a very disappointing and embarassing experience, as we had raved to our... More

Our family of 11 started out going to one of the popular seafood restaurants in town but found out they all had a 1 - 2 hour wait at 8:00 on a Wednesday night! So we found T & W off the beaten path and we are SO GLAD we did. When we called they told us to 'come on... More

We ate dinner here one evening. It's off the beaten path, but if you want seafood, it's worth it! They can serve up just about anything - most of it fried, but not all of it. We had grilled flounder, spicy boiled shrimp, and homemade crab cakes. All of it was good, but the crab cakes were awesome! It wasn't... More

If you in the area and want to know where the locals go, it's here. Great local seafood at affordable prices. Best fried shrimp and oysters in the area!

We did not have good service when we went recently for dinner. We waited 15 for anyone to come over and give us menus and utensils. After inquiring at the service desk, we waited a bit more for someone to come to our table. We were there around 5pm on a Saturday night and it was not very crowded. After... More

Glad Mr Taylor is back at the helm...still some of the best seafood around. My partner had scallops and crab cakes and I had flounder and clam strips which were prepared just right...and the slaw is ALWAYS excellent. Also met a lot of new friends from all over the country. Wish it had been cool enough for us to have... More

This is the place to go for Oysters & Seafood. Don't expect anything fancy. It's a very old and well established business that's been in operation for generations. Very casual, very down-home, and nobody is in a hurry. My last visit was a bust but I have been here before and it's been good. When it gets too busy the... More

We've always eaten at T&W when we've visited the area. Great food! Looking forward to another visit really soon.
