They bring you the wrong food and threaten to call the police when you say you will not pay for it and then tell you not to come back. Avoid at all costs. RUDE AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am a 47 year old male and I felt like a spring chicken here. Meal was ok, but for having the "best seafood on the beach" everything was fried and only had about 5 items on their seafood menu. Service was ok, but not great.

We came over on the ferry and decided to stop in here before we headed back. The food was good but I asked for BBQ sauce for my chicken nuggets and was handed moldy packs :( I enjoyed the onions rings and would probably go back if I couldn't find anywhere else to eat

We stopped here for lunch because of some of the great reviews we read and other recommendations. Perhaps we came on a bad day, but this was the worst restaurant experience we had on our entire trip. The food was mediocre at best and very greasy. Service was non-existent. Our waitress ran around like a chicken with it's head cut... More

While the lunch menu had an okay selection, the food was not good at all. We ordered country style steak and vegetables. Not sure what the meat was, but it tasted terrible. Was fried very hard and very thin. I could not even eat it. The vegetables-fried okra, squash and green beans were also not good. Best thing was the... More

My experience is different from some of the others, With that said my visits were off season. Enjoyed "several" visits here & each time the service & food was excellent. Best chicken N dumplings around, On a couple of the visits we had a small wait but well worth it . Prices are reasonable & great food. Best of all... More

Ate during the lunch meal and without a doubt the best fried flounder I have eaten in a long time. The plate had two very large flounder filets plus the usually sides. My folks have eaten here numerous times and rave about the flounder, they were right. Yea, the service might have been a bit on the slow slide but... More

Restaurant closes at 8:00 pm but you have to get an order in by 7:00. My father put in a take out order at 6:30 on 9/1 but they were out of fish??? You would think they would have anticipated how many customers they would have on the last official summer holiday of the year. They have great fish when... More

No reservations taken. Long lines usually mean excellent food. Here it simply means good food and slow service. The restaurant closes at 8:00, but stops taking new takeout orders and allowing people to get on the queue by 7:15. We were seated at 7:20 after a 45 minute wait, placed orders by 7:30 and had food by 8:00. I understand... More
