“Local seafood at it's best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Brought my wife here for valentine's dinner and we couldn't have been happier! The shrimp was better than anywhere on Tybee, and as a local I'm picky about my seafood! My wife started with the clam chowder and had the shrimp trio for an entree and she was very pleased with both! Angel was our server but you can tell it's a team effort because everyone working made some type of contact with our dining, whether it was bringing the salad or chowder or helping clear finished dishes.This place is a must for anyone visiting Tybee looking for fresh seafood, good service, or just an overall nice dining experience!!

“Worth the Drive or the Walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This was the second restaurant we visited while on the island. It too looked like it was in need of repair, but don't be fooled by its looks. The food is delicious, well prepared, served excellently and reasonably priced. The server was prompt, courteous and kept an eye out for glasses headed south and in need of refilling.
Be sure to make this place one of your stops if you are on the north end of the island.
