Good Food

Stopped in late and enjoyed supper with the family. I had the Reel ig Platter. Plenty of food, enjoyed the large coconut shrimp with the apple marmalade type sauce to dip into. Other had the crab cakes that were excellent. One had the shrimp Alfredo that was very good as well.

I don't write reviews BUT our server was awesome. For a family that never gets to have a peaceful meal, this dude was great! He gave the kids toy sharks and was incredibly friendly. Best service in town! Hell in the state!

We visited on a very busy Sunday afternoon and found the restaurant to be easy to access and friendly. We had no wait seating and the food was served hot and fresh. The shrimp was tender and juicy, far better than you would expect from a seafood restaurant in East Tennessee.Service was attentive and friendly. Highly recommend .

We heard about the $2 Twosdays so decided to drop by. There wasn't any promotional signs on the table about it so we asked our server about it. We tried the crab fritters (for $2.00) which turned out to be French Fries with a crab sauce with black beans and corn. Not what we thought we would get but actually... More

I love their steamed buckets. Lots of seafood choices and service was excellent! They had the crawfish while I was there and they were a little overcooked but had great flavor. Think I'll stick to the crab legs and shrimp from here on out.

When we arrived we were excited at the ambiance and character of the place. We waited 30 minutes on a Saturday afternoon which was fine with us. Our waitress explained all our choices since it was our first visit, answered our questions and brought our drinks promptly (Hannah). We waited and waited on our food. Someone other than Hannah brought... More

Our server, Rachel, was always quick to get us anything we needed, made some really cute bibs, and the kids found they LOVE crab!
