Good times

The outside is nothing to look at. The inside is quaint. Shrimp are small but cooked correctly. Fish was good. Other meals such as Cajun Cappelinni was huge.

The Oyster Platter was great and cooked perfectly. The seafood Alfredo was very good as well. However, they have to be the only seafood restaurant in South that charges extra for Hush puppies. We are local residents and I guess we never paid attention to our check. Unless this something they have just started. So don't take them as complimentary.

No other place around here comes close. The best she crab soup to. The service is outstanding, and friendly. Very cold beer in real glass mugs. Good strong ice tea, Jimmy Buffet in the background. Our kind of place.

First of all, the food was very good. Both tiny little pieces of it. For $15, I would expect more than 2 small pieces of fried grouper. I would also expect more potato salad than what could fit in a plastic sauce cup (literally about 2-3 teaspoons of potato salad. Like I said, the food was good...but I won't be... More

Frankly if I had been just riding by, it would not have caught my attention because it is a very small place. A friend of ours told us about this place and it was fantastic. The food was tremendous. It was the best meal that I had during our vacation. I had the spicy steamed shrimp and it was great.... More
