Well Zack we are sorry you feel that way and notice you JUST became a TripAdvisor reviewer. You'll notice how many positive reviews we get about our food, staff and service so clearly there is some other reason you feel the need to trash our restaurant. Maybe you are the one we had an issue with a few days ago... More

Good Afternoon. Thanks so much for taking the time to to write a review on my restaurant. I'm pleased to hear that everything but the Tuna Taco was enjoyable. I wish you had brought it to my attention as I would have definitely taken care of it for you. If not me, then the server could have. We generally put... More

Perfect place for a late lunch on a rainy day. Best fried shrimp and oysters I had while in South Carolina. We were there on "fish and chips" Friday and they were delicious too! Don't miss the dill and caper tartar sauce (or the bloody Mary's)!

Beautiful outdoor casual dining. Service can be slow but is still pleasant. Nice cypress trees and right on the marina. Eat out on the porch if there is room. Corn and shrimp chowder is so good. Mahi tacos are another favorite.

Good Afternoon, thanks so much for the nice review. I'm sorry your service was slow as we strive to make sure you are not rushed, but not waiting either. We are training several new servers for the busy season so that may have been the issue but either way, I apologize for the slow service. I'm glad you enjoyed your... More

If you are looking for a place to relax and enjoy some drinks and food on the water then this is the place. The food is good, but what really stands out is the view and the sunsets. There is entertainment on Thursday through Sunday so that makes it even nicer. The atmosphere is friendly and you are made to... More

HI there, thanks so much for the great review. I'm sorry about the timing of your apps and food, as I hate to make people feel rushed. I have also noticed it in the past week or two and have addressed this with my kitchen staff and they are going to come up with a better system to prevent that.... More

We stopped by one mid-week afternoon but only for a drink, so we did not sample the food. The place is certainly tranquil with a beautiful riverside setting. Just the place to sit and unwind and watch the comings and goings of the many riverboats. The menu board advertised a full breakfast on a Sunday for $7.95 which seemed good... More

THanks so much for the review. Glad you enjoyed the atmosphere. Curious to know why you only gave us a 3 for service and value though. For a full service waterfront restaurant we are priced well below our competitors and our servers go above and beyond to take care of our customers. More

Everything you could ask for and beautiful setting on the Waccamaw River. Food and service were very good. Outdoor seating was very pleasant with beautiful views. Recommended. Not your typical marina food.

No better place to enjoy indoor or outdoor cocktails at sunset. Casual bar scene, reasonably priced and tasty food. Great burgers. Friendly and good service. If you are lucky Bat or other musicians may be playing. Excellent Sunday breakfast buffet, often special events for holidays. Go several times and you will feel like family.
