This is one of regular places to go during the summer. Mostly, you'll find fried fish, but you can get good grilled fish if you ask for it. They also have a sandwich called "The Deep" that includes a large portion of fried flounder served up with either fries or onion rings (I prefer the onions rings by far). During... More

We visit this place all the time. Fresh food. Friendly staff. It's the best place to eat on SpI. It's expanded a bit which is good. No long wait today. In and out really quickly.

We ate only one serving of the all you can eat catfish--way too much but oh, so good. Didn't care for the cole slaw--too much vinegar. Hush puppies were great. Good price; $10.99 for the special on catfish. Can see this place PACKED during high season, but during winter we walked right in and got served. The restaurant was full.

The charbroiled shrimp and seared scallop salad was very good, but nothing special. It was a cold, windy night and the place was nearly empty but the waiter was reasonable attentive and cheerful. The other entree, shrimp three ways, was very good according to my partner.

This restaurant is located along a main road and is easy to find. This place is very attractive and pleasant to be in. The food was very good. The service was very good. The prices were reasonable. I would go back in a minute.

With six people in my family all having different food was a plus. The food was fresh and plentiful. We had to take some back to the hotel for the younger ones. Fresh salads and great seafood, steak, pasta, chicken and the rest

Everything about our dinner was wonderful. The decor was interesting. The food was great. My husband said, "Best chicken wings ever." We had steak, seafood pasta, a hamburger and a vegetable sandwich. All of our food was prepared well, served hot and delicious. They kept our drinks filled. Our waiter was helpful and courteous. You could not ask for more

First time we went here, back in 2012, they had great food, great service, and the best cheesecake ever! This time was not as good, all the way around. Hope it improves before our next trip to SPI in 2015!

The best Flounder PoBoy I ever had. Great service. Chairs were a little uncomfortable and the temperature of the room kept fluctuating a lot, but I would definitely recommend.
