“Love the fish fry!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Arrive early or later as this place is bumpin'! You need to try the fish fry, the best around! Instead of the delicious french fries, I upgraded to the baked sweet potato. Fantastic with the cinnamon butter!! I've also had the grilled chicken sandwich which was very good, served on a grilled bun.

“Great Restaurant Near the "Shell Factory"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

We stopped in here after a visit to the Shell Factory, and are we glad we did. There are all types of fish mounted around the ceiling, and both booths and tables. We each ordered one of the Sunday Shrimp Specials ($9.99). Shrimp Po'boy came on a hoagie roll loaded with fried shrimp, onion, lettuce and tomato. I had the Coconut Shrimp (7 large) with a Coconut Rum dipping sauce and honey. We had no problem substituting our fries with hush puppies (a dozen each). Perfectly done. The best we'd both had in a long, long time! Soft drink ($2.25) was refilled without even asking. Corona w/lime ($2.83). No room for dessert. Service was prompt and friendly.
