My wife and I went here for our first date since our son was born and it was perfect. Delicious food, really friendly staff, great service. Our waitress Brittany was wonderful!

This restaurant offers a nice selection of many different delicious appetizers and meals. My favorite was the fresh shrimp, crawfish, andouille sausage & fried grits Yum Yum Ya Ya. My family liked it so much they went there 3 more times in a week to order it. Atmosphere is casual and there is a hooky ring game there to help... More

Had lunch here. My husband had the fried flounder sandwich. I had fried shrimp po'boy. Both well cooked. The french fries were the kind I like best with the skin on. Perfectly cooked. No breading or fancy seasonings. Just great potato flavor. Sweet potato fries also good.

My husband stopped by for a late lunch today and were immediately told that it would take an hour for us to get our food. I felt like he was encouraging us to leave! We were fine with that and sat outside. I'm not sure why it would be so slow, as far as I could tell there weren't that... More

We discovered this place by accident while driving while hungry. We were not disappointed. We were quickly seated outside and got our drinks pretty quickly. The deck has plenty of outdoor seating and a nice view of the marsh. The food took a while to come out (prob 20 min), but they were very apologetic and said it was they... More

Stopped for a quick bite returning from Hunting Island after checking out the lighthouse and beach loaded with driftwood. Nicely greeting by Thad Lane the general manager and seated quickly in a comfortable location. I had the black n blue, bacon burger, which was delicious and my wife had the Ruben sandwich, which she said was the best she had... More

Love the great, local seafood. Never disappoints. Looks very casual but very creative and fun dishes. Love the Okra appetizer and the calamari appetizers. Shrimp and Grits is also excellent.
