Best seafood around!

Thank goodness we have a friend that lives in Hilton Head to tell us about this awesome restaurant! They catch their own seafood and cook it fresh! We actually went here twice during our week long vacation and probably would have gone back a third time if we didn't have to leave the next day! We... read more

Everything we had was amazing. From the fresh basket of hushpuppies when we first sat down, to the calamari, shrimp, she crab soup, and sweet potato fries! The portions were very large for the price. We enjoyed it thoroughly and April was so delightful. Great food, great service. It's definitely made it onto our favorites list. A must if you... More

This restaurant is a great place for a simple, relaxed meal. There isn't anything fancy or fussy about it. Good, fresh seafood, very reasonably priced, friendly atmosphere. It's that local, out of the way type of place. You can gather with a group of friends or go as a couple. Oysters were delicious, as was the crab.

They serve great food and the waitress Marilyn was very good with a party of 19 (6 kids under 10 years old).

We had a great dinner. The service was a little slow but our server Marianne was super nice and friendly. My husband and daughter had crab legs. I had the shrimp PO boy, and my sister had the shrimp ruben. Everyone loved their food, and it was really fresh and tasty. I would make this place top on my list... More

Our server did not take our drink order or even talk to us for about 15 minutes of us being in there. The food was good, especially the Caesar Salad. I saw my waitress probably 3 times while I was eating.

We had a small group of nine who went for dinner. The dining room was small and quaint but exactly what we was looking for away from the big seafood chains. We placed our orders and waited for our food to be served, while waiting several of the drinks on our table ran dry and we're not refilled until after... More

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 it. Most unbelievable free bread offering I've... 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!
