We had a reservation for 12-food was good once it came out of the kitchen! 8 people got their meals and it took another 30 minutes for the other 4 to get theirs. Absolutely no reason as two of the four dinners were the same as other dinners served first. There are much nicer places that have their act together.

Called from hotel 5 minutes away and asked to make reservation. Was told to just come on down, no wait, not crowded. Arrived 10 minutes after the phone call and even though we could see numerous empty tables, we were told it would be a 30 minute wait. When questioned about the phone call, the response was... "Who told you... More

The food wasn't bad but not many people were there... Maybe because it was a Sunday. Our waitress was great and attentive.

We've been here 3 times now. The first time, our waitress was amazing. Our drinks were never empty, the food was delicious & the price was good. She got us signed up for a points card to use (the name is escaping me right now) and that trip in itself was 5 stars. The second & third trip was just... More

Family friendly. This is one of the few seafood restaurants open for lunch. We visited 3 times in one week, and found the food to be very good, and the service to be excellent. Ask for Olivia as your server. Our family of eight, ranging from 3 seniors to a 20 month old infant, all enjoyed the food and the... More

I think this is so funny. These reviews for this place are horrible, funny thing is, my husband is an acclaimed chef and it was one of our best meals in Beaufort. The hushpuppies are by far the best I had in Beaufort. I had the fan tail shrimp that was so great. The shrimp was fried lightly so I... More

I ordered the lunch combo plate for $11.99. I was very disappointed it was one tiny piece of flounder and 6 shrimp which had no taste. My daughter had pasta with shrimp, she said it was good just a little to much butter. The only thing that made our experience enjoyable was our waitress, she was extremely nice. Overall I... More

This is a hidden gem near Charleston, SC. The food was wonderful and we had a coupon from where we stayed from the campground. The service was pretty fast, the prices were good, and the food was excellent! It was not near a highly conjested area either. Would highly recommend.
