Overpriced

Went here today for lunch, as the first time we tried to go they were closed. They have the bizarre winter hours of 11-2. My husband and I ordered the shrimp burger. It was really good, a breaded shrimp patty that was fried golden brown and crispy, served on a bun with mayo and tartar sauce. The... read more

This is a bit pricey, but well worth it guys! Seriously! They are catching it literally across the street in the inter coastal waterway, FRESH! Oh so tasty and it's a beach shack yal so it's down home great food period. The recipe for their shrimp burgers has been one I've desperately tried to unsuccessfully recreate for years. Got to...

Stop by there going or coming from Hunting Island. Best thing on the menu is their Shrimp Burger, one of the best if not the best you will ever eat. Really casual and laid-back with wonderful people working behind the counter.

Don't think it's handicap accessible. I think the food could be better and the selection more varied. Everything is ordered and received thru a takeout window. Little human contact. Scenic place with erratic hours, try Johnson's Creek nearby good food and nice atmosphere.

In the winter months, we drive by this little place all the time and after reading very mixed reviews, we decided to stop and try the shrimp burger. It was just over $13 for two and they were small. But, we were glad we stopped. The shrimp burger was very good, big pieces of shrimp and I could be wrong... More

I have been going here since I moved to Bft in 1996. It's a must stop after a great day at the beach! Even after not being able to go for several years, the most recent stop tasted just as great as the first time. I have never had anything but the shrimp burger, but why try something else when...

We stopped in on a cold afternoon and had soup and sandwiches for lunch. I thought the food was just average with the exception of the shrimp burger. The place itself is interesting and I will give it another try. Be advised they only accept cash no credit cards and their hours are limited..

Drove down from Augusta for a short getaway and saw this little place on the side of the road. Decided to stop because I saw it listed on TripAdvisor. The place is not for fine dining but if you want a relaxed atmosphere and good food then this is the place. My wife and i had the shrimp dinner with... More

This little place has been around forever, and many of the people who work there have been there forever. They continue to offer quality food, well-prepared at a great price! I love shrimp, and of all the places in the area, their fried shrimp are the BEST!

The seafood dinner and the shrimp burger are delicious. This place is a throw back. It's a road side seafood shack. Truly. Worth a trip in for a bite to eat.
