Joined the midweek lunchtime rush & it is a simple place; basic menu with mostly fried seafood & some hot dogs/burgers/corn dogs, etc, order & wait for your name to be called. Nothing fancy but given the lack of options close by, obviously well frequented. The wait for the line was about 8 people deep which took 15 mins to... More

Been here before and had to have another shrimp burger while camping at Hunting Island State Park. I have them add lettuce and tomato to my burger and its quite a tasty snack!

After reading the reviews , I was excited to try the Shrimp Burger ... After about a 15 minute wait , I finally got my food and boy was I disappointed . A bun with tartar sauce and a patty made of ground shrimp and some sort of mysterious bonding agent , that was it ... No tomatoes , no... More

I ate the recommended Shrimp Burger and then ordered a second meal and ate the shrimp and scallops. They were great. You walk up and order your food and then you can eat either inside or out. The atmosphere is very laid back and nice. Everything is fried. I like it that way, but if you prefer your seafood prepared... More

My husband found out about this in a shrimp and grits book. When we arrived, there were car tags from all over the Eastern US. We stood in line for our famous shrimp burgers and were able to eat in the gazebo next door to the main building. The shrimp burgers were devised from shrimpers who ate them at sea.... More

Simple site and good fresh local fried seafood. Enjoyed the shrimp burger, a bit pricey for the size, but good tasting and delicious hush puppies. Crab cake was very good with fried shrimp. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys fresh fried seafood at a picnic table with cool salty breeze.

She thought it was good. I had the flounder sandwich tartar sauce and I thought it was tasty. It was... More
