Easy to miss ... Hard to forget.

It's easy to miss this restaurant as you drive by. But you'll be glad you found it as this is a must stop if you're in the area. During three different visits we had coconut shrimp, fried oysters, fried soft shell crab, and crab cakes. All were excellent. We had sides of butter beans and cold... read more

Having passed the colorful little cafe a hundred times I opted to check it out over lunch time. Seating for roughly 40 guests this cafe has a homey feel great for family and good friends looking to relax. The service was prompt and before I knew it was enjoying a wonderful mushroom & bacon burger on a nice kaiser roll.... More

Stopped on the way to the Bay for a quick, late lunch and had a pretty good meal. Two of us had clam strips with cole slaw and the third had a crab cake sandwich. The service was quick (only one other party there) and our food was hot and good. Typical diner fare. Nothing fancy.

We stopped in for lunch on a Saturday and were greeted by very friendly folks when we entered. My girlfriend and I both ordered the soft-shelled crab sandwich, and they were delicious! Each came with one side, and the prices were very reasonable.

Wife and I shared a seafood platter, first time she had a soft-shelled crab, yea one person could finish the platter by themselves , but would not have room for dessert if they did.

Happened upon this little gem while traveling. We had our three year old with us and the staff was incredibly welcoming to him and us. Awesome menu included seafood baskets, burgers and sandwiches. I had a hard time choosing because I wanted to try everything. I got the fried oyster basket, husband had the crab cake sandwich and our little... More

We made our second stop a To Do. I love this place. The owner and staff are very friendly and the food is great. All sides are homemade and so are the cocktail and tarter sauces. Do yourself a favor and stop in for some great seafood. BTW, we are going back for dinner.

Great little find with wonderful homemade food. The desserts are all homemade and the staff are friendly and helpful! We had the crab puff appetizers which were great along with an order of hush puppies which were to die for.
