I read a lot reviews before I check out a restaurant. I didn't know what, by some reviews, if i should try or not. I did. And glad I did. Service great. Nice place. Food was very good. I had the flounder. Very well spiced and cooked. Coleslaw was very good. Will stop again when in the area.

We arrived near to closing time, and were seated and served very graciously. Our meals were nicely prepared and delicious.

Co worker and I was staying at the Quality Inn next door and wanted some drinks and eats. The bar area is small but the customers in it were awesome! The bartender was horrible(we all have our days) and the food was average. If I'm ever in the area I MIGHT go back back for a couple drinks.

This used to be a favorite for visiting family but it's not as good as before. The first batch of hush puppies were hard and old, the baked potato was old and grayish brown through out. The scallops were...I'm not sure what they were but they weren't scallops. couldn't swallow them.

I ordered fried oysters and asked if I could have pasta on the side instead of potatoes /canned green beans or applesauce. I was told no substitutions they would charge me an additional charge. That's fine. My oysters appeared on a platter with a total of 8 small oysters for $16.99. At least put some cocktail sauce or perhaps lettuce... More

Service was not the greatest but food was good. Hushpuppies served in the beginning are very tasty. Would eat there again.

This seemed like a good idea as it was recommended by my hotel, its parking lot was almost full and it seemed busy. As I was alone I usually eat at the bar. As soon as I sat down I was OVERWHELMED BY THE SMELL OF SMOKE. I looked around and everyone, including the bartender, was smoking. I had ordered... More
