Great seafood place

This is a great local (non-chain) seafood place. While the menu isn't huge, there are plenty of options. They have quite a large beer selection too. I have yet to eat anything here that wasn't good. There is an outdoor bar with a games area, as well as an indoor bar and games area for those... read more

Went to a going away lunch at the Palmetto Oyster house today and the staff was on the ball. The orders were taken quickly, the food came out fast and they processed everyone's payments snappily. They have a great selection of beers too.

We arrived at this restaurant just before the evening rush. We were seated right away. The service was great and the food was very good. I got the Bayou Pasta with chicken and the noodles were a little dry, but the chicken and sauce was delicious. My husband enjoyed his seafood. We would probably eat there again, if we're ever...

This is a casual restaurant. The food was casual, but very well prepared. My dining partner had the bacon wrapped scallops and thought they were excellent. I had lobster tacos and they were good too. My only complaint was the noise level. There was a large party in the same room with us and they were very, very loud, to... More

We chose this restaurant for fresh seafood, and it was a great choice! The atmosphere is very casual, but the service is quick, friendly, and attentive. I had grilled swordfish with a creole sauce and my friend had a salmon pinwheel filled with crab meat. Both were delicious! My side dish of red potatoes was cooked to perfection, and the... More

We stopped here on the wrecommendation of springhill suites front desk. They did not steer us wrong. First of all dont be in a hurry. It takes a while for your food but is worth the wait. I had the soft shell crab soft tacos and they were superb. My husband had shrimp and grits and thoroughly enjoyed it. We... More

We had a group of 6 on a Friday evening and everything as very good. Each person enjoyed their meal and the service was equally good. I have never had a bad experience here. There is a good selection of seafood and other items and the drink selection is adequate.

If ou don't like something, they do not take it off the bill. My crab cake was mostly breaded grease and they refused to take it off despite me not eating it. The burgers are gristle and just frozen patties with no seasoning. The boiled shrimp is ok, but I can boil shrimp at home. Only reason u go back... More
