Mom and pop place with great food

Love this place! I like the small town, mom-and-pop feel of the place. I was a little disappointed because I couldn't get the raw oysters (out of season), but all of the food was great. This might sound strange, but the huspuppies were incredible. Like a sweet cornbread with actual corn kernels in... read more

Lunch today(7-2-15) with my wife. One entree was fried flounder with sweet potato fries. The other was fried flounder + fried shrimp with french fries. Both meals were superb with excellent service. We can't wait to get back. Julie & Phil Jones

Horrid experience. Terrible service, cold food, order not correct, expensive. Waitress was never available. Too busy with large parties of tourists. Overpriced tourist trap. Not a place for locals. Noisy, very cold. Baked potato was cold and hard. The shrimp were very small. The salmon portion was very skimpy for an extra $2. Red Lobster is 1,000 times better!

Great seafood restaurant with fresh fish and other catches of the day. Low country boil, mussels and platters are well done, offered in multiple cooking styles with your selection of side dishes.

We all enjoyed our lunch here. The never ending hush puppies were wonderful and options for lunch were many. Would return!

Decided to try a new place when treating my husband to a "nice" dinner out for his birthday. Since we are familiar with the family owned market on the river, I expected similar quality of both food and service and was disappointed on both. We waited in the entryway for quite awhile before being greeted and led to a booth.... More

Can only recommend - the Oyster, U-Peel Shrimp and HushPuppies. Since that is our whole order. Oysters - Great! HushPuppies - Great! Shrimp - Tasty - really nice flavor. Pricing is right - service is friendly

Great family dining experience. Something for everyone in the family, even the little kids. Food was fantastic in this little off the beaten path restaurant. Waitress Marianne was knowledgeable of menu and service was super good. Little wonder this great restaurant has been written about in Southern Living and other magazines

Great fish, great service and great price. Very casual with live music most Friday and Saturday nights. What more value can you ask for. My favorite restaurant in the Low Country! Just Go

Took my mom for a quick dinner and we loved it. The hushpuppies were a great starter and our dinner was superb. We enjoyed the music on Saturday night. Great Place!!
