Good food and friendly staff make this a favorite whenever we are in the area. While it may not have the cuisine of a fancy bitsro, the down home cookin' (Frog legs anyone?) will have your mouth watering for your next return visit.

Had the opportunity to dine here on the evening of 8/3/14. Service was very good, food was just what everyone hoped it would be. and the pricing was in line with other area seafood restaurants. Will be going back again.

Went and ordered the spaqetti plate came with toast and salad do not like salad so wanted extra toast instead of salad would not substitute extra toast. Wife got devil crab well overdone and did not look like devil's crab more like a salmon patty. Way overpriced. Do not waste time or money.

We stopped in for lunch and ordered broiled grouper and broiled mahi-mahi. Both were terrible. The grouper looked good, but it tasted like butter. They broiled it submerged in butter. The mahi was the opposite, dry and hard. They were inedible. The steamed vegetables were fine, but it wasn't worth eating if that is all I was going to eat.... More

I absolutely love this place. It got pretty bad for a while there. However, the new manager has worked very hard to keep her customers coming back. The staff is friendlier and I think it is the best staff they have ever had. I would definitely recommend this place.

This is a good place to eat seafood at a reasonable price. They have many specials you can choose from. Fried baby shrimp is always good and portion size was good. Service is good and wait time for your order is reasonably short.
