Always love this place!

Love the fish and all the sides you can get here. We have never eaten in the restaurant just get the food to go. They give you a lot of food so be hungry. Love it!

After hearing wonderful praises of the Richmond restaurant we decided on the Petersburg historical location. The shrimp & scallops did not taste fresh & the texture was as if they had been microwaved. Too much emphasis was put into the sizes of the portions of cornbread.cabbage. & cheese grits. The salmon cake dinners & french fries tasted like they were... More

Corn bread was delicious and portions are huge but disappointed in the seafood chili. Extremely "fishy" and pasty...tasted like straight chili powder. Not what I was expecting for $23 . Couldn't even eat half of it due to the flavor.

I had heard about this place and finally tried it out. Glad I did. Had their signature fish basket and was outstanding. Will definitely be back to try other dishes.

I've been waiting so long to go to this spot. And it was a ok experience. The company I was with made it nice. I kept saying no one appears happy here the wait staff had a bunch of scowling faces and you could tell it was just a job. On to the food, I had the cheesy grits and... More

We wanted a quick meal but since the weather was so beautiful we decided to stop in the city and take a chance with the hopes it would not be crowded. We were given a 30-35 minute estimate but the wait was actually about 20-25 minutes. Great! The food was a little slow coming out but worth the wait. Yummy.... More

As others have said, come hungry because they pile it on! Our family of 4 split 3 meals and there was plenty to go around. The shrimp-n-grits was delicious and uniquely flavored (more of a sweet sauce), the cornbread was moist and delicious, and the sides were equally good. We arrived around 6 on a Friday night and had no... More

If your staying in Richmond or just passing thru it would be worth your time to stop and eat a meal at this wonderful and most frienldly restaurant, bring your appetite ! Seafood/Soul Food, plenty of street parking, NO reservations on the weekends but the wait was EZ and well worth it !
