We enjoyed our visit and the food. In fact, we returned a second time. It is a little on the expensive side (most entrees are an average of $20). They have an enclosed patio on the back that overlooks the inlet. The service was good and friendly. The food was good. My wife had the fried clams both times. One... More

Waitress rude and the food not that good for the price. Better places to go in the area. Surf and Turf $44.95. Are you kidding me. Seafood not that fresh for being right on the water. This was recommended by a friend. Not returning

If you want FRIED seafood this is the place to go. They fry up a mean seafood platter, but don't order anything not fried. You will be disappointed. I ordered a shrimp and scallops dish in a white wine and lemon butter sauce. On first impression, I thought I received the wrong dish because the scallops and shrimp were swimming... More

Good food, great service and location-on the marsh. Ordered the low country boil...pretty good...not a clams person though...shrimp, corn, sausage were delicious. Solid hush puppies and salad.

Sara Js has been a. Favorite for over 20 years. Our wait on a Sunday was 20 - 30 minutes for inside and came in close to the shorter side. Our waitress was very good, all the food was fantastic. Highly recommend the stuffed shrimp or seafood casserole.

Scallops & shrimp were supposed to be sautéed, but came out rubbery like they were boiled. The sheepshead was way over cooked & flavoring on all food was very disappointing. We cannot understand how they received 3 stars- total waste of our money & extremely disappointing for a waterfront restaurant that has access to fresh seafood - need a new... More

Best seafood we have had. The servings are plentiful and service is excellent. Go early if you do not like to wait since this restaurant draws a crowd! It's worth the wait though! You will not be disappointed! The scallops and the Seafood Alfredo are the best around!
