Nice surprise

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!!

Their menu was quite extensive, and consisted mainly of apparently freshly caught and local seafood, with a whole host off sides. My fried flounder was excellent, my wife's soft shelled crabs and she crab soup were excellent as well. Hush puppies were better than many I've tasted, and the Bud I had was well priced. We'll be back to try... More

Based on the visit to the family market on the river which showed some large awesome shrimp and other seafood, & these reviews thought this place would be awesome. It is a small cute restaurant in a small strip mall and were greeted nicely and sat promptly. Waitress offered up their famous complimentary hush puppies ( just OK) and took... More

We enjoyed excellent seafood! We had eaten at Hudson's the night prior and this was even better. Our server, Ryan, was very attentive and kindly answered questions and gave suggestions. The atmosphere is very local/ casual but maybe that's because they put all their focus on the food! The best seafood I have had in a long time. Dessert was... More

Visited for the 4th time in three vacations...the food didn't seem as fresh and the restaurant didn't seem as clean. Maybe it was an off day because I've loved this restaurant before. I would return because of my prior experiences but if this was a first impression, probably not.

My family and I had a great dinner here. Seafood dip & the Snow Crab legs were amazing! We definitely would eat here again.

I always have the salmon and love the hushpuppies. On the weekends, they have a musician who sings--he is great!

I like this place more than my wife does. It does not have much in the way of ambience, but the sea food is as good as I have found in this area.

Everything was perfect on our first visit, but by no means our last. One problem, too much great food and we all ran out of storage capacity. Oysters steamed by the bucket, soft shell crabs, fish, shrimp, had to even take a shrimp po boy to go for lunch tomorrow ! Be sure to make the trip to Bluffton!

Been here three times for dinner and the first two times were not memorable. Tonight, however, amazing. I called first to make sure they had soft shell blue crabs on the menu. They did. Girlfriend and I ordered it at the bar, with very tasty side dishes, The butter beans side was absolutely melt in mouth. Talked to chef about... More
