This is a wonderful place for lunch or dinner. The crab cakes are some of the best and their french fries are worth every calorie. The wait staff was friendly and we did not to have to wait long.I would recomend this to anyone who is looking for a great meal that doesn't cost a lot

We love their fried mozzarella! We won't eat it from anywhere else. There has only been one time of bad service and the table we were sat at was dirty and the host did not return to clean it. But with the good sometimes there is bad. Yummy place over all

We stopped here on our cycling journey from Tampa - NYC for Project Fear Is Horseplay, and were completely blown away by the experience. First off, the wait staff is so friendly and accommodating, I'm fairly confident that I went through 8 glasses of iced tea (I recommend), and my glass was never empty for long before she came around...

As always the fish was way above standard. Hush puppies were excellent. And our waitress Brittany was very attentive to our needs.
