We visited with a party of five ordering different items. All thought that the food was average to slightly below average. Service was poor. Our server seemed put off to attend to the table even though at the time we visited the restaurant was probably a quarter to a third full. A item ordered was never brought out and when... More

Might have caught them on a bad night, but not impressed with the food or service. Mom in law said the pick and peel shrimp we're good, oysters not so good, and the crab legs we're dry.

I had excellent shrimp and grits and most everyone's food was very good. Althought we ordered salads it took forever to get our food and salad came out after our entrees. The waitress said that another server had taken our salads for her table. That just shouldn't happen. My husband saw coconut cake on the menu and asked the waitress... More

Very Good (Low Country Boil) the shrimp was very fresh, the potatoes could have been alittle more seasoned. Our waitress (April) was excellent! she made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our meal. The Restaurant, is very cozy and relaxing.

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 had the scallops, calamari,... 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.

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
