Fried Seafood -- As Good As It Gets!

If what you crave is good old fried seafood, this spot cannot be beat. We have had the Seafood Sampler and the Half & Half Fried Shrimp & Oysters several times, and they are always fabulous. We go back every time we visit the Pawleys/Litchfield area.

Big fried seafood platters of all sorts, great seafood gumbo, unique secret-recipe hushpuppies and friendly service. The owner comes around during dinner to see that everyone is doing well. I rarely order dessert, but I am glad I did here - it's a tiny, round frozen cloud pie thing that finishes off dinner perfectly.

For years we've gone here for the fried oyster sandwich: a GREAT deal as you get more oysters than on the fried oyster platter. Our last 3 visits have been progressively worse. Visit this last month produced a fried seafood platter for $22 with 6 oysters and maybe 4 scallops. There was a "taste or flavor" that I cannot describe.... More

The Scallops and Fried Oysters were excellent. The staff was friendly and helpful. Good seafood and excellent service. Price for food was a lot more reasonable than a similar meal in Murrells Inlet two days prior. The best Hush Puppies I've ever had in a restaurant.

There are WAY better seafood places to visit in and around Litchfield Beach...this place is so very disappointing and WAY overpriced. I ordered the scallops that was a $20 dish with supposedly two sides. I selected a baked potato and a side salad. The scallops were a little dry..a little overcooked and with what supposed to be Cajun seasoning. It... More

Very few over cooked shrimp, many under cooked fries. Two very mediocre fried shrimp dinners for $47.00? Feeling ripped off. Lost 2 great customers.

Good seafood and excellent service. The owner welcomes everyone at the door or your table. They really care about you. Great southern style seafood and outstanding hush puppies.

I was batching it during a maintenance visit to our rental property, and this was my one "night out". Big disappointment, never again. My fried oysters were only OK, didn't have that sweet, rich flavor of truly fresh oysters perfectly flash-fried, and too much batter. The treatment I received as a non-regular made me wish I had never entered, or... More

The food was fresh, simple and delicious. I had locally caught mahi and my husband the Cajun shrimp. Great atmosphere with the host chatting with all the tables. Will definetly return and recommend- fish as it should be served, simple & fresh and seasoned just right.

The seafood is very good as the grouper, shrimp, flounder and shrimp and grits all got good reviews. I personally had the grouper and it was very good. They bring these warm sweet hush puppies to begin with and they are great with butter. The sides were simply ok: herbed rice and mixed vegetables and fries and side salad. The... More
