“Excellent Food, great prices for 'Fresh' seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2011

The restaurant might be missed when driving by. Not really a restaurant look, a building with some tables under an awning. Parking lot was full, and we were told to come here for the best seafood, was apprehensive when looking at it from the road, but went anyways. Very glad we did. The scallops, oysters, and clams were really really great. If you want fresh seafood, come here, would definately come back.

“Great foo!d! Always fresh fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2011

We had soft shell crab and oysters. Both were excellent! The food was fresh, and lightly fried. We had the coconut pie, too and next time we'll try the peanut butter pie. the food is great and the prices are worth the drive!! The casual outdoor dining is not a problem. There are plenty of ceiling fans and plenty of iced tea!! The only thing that could make it better would be hush puppies with the meal!!!
