“Sub standard very poor quality”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012

This was a poor quality seafood restaurant. The fish was obviously cooked from frozen and was quite waterlogged and tasteless. The shrimp were similar but with the telltale rubbery taste of frozen low grade shrimp. The deviled crab had no visible crab meat. For those who are used to seafood prepared as it should be and properly seasoned you will be very disappointed with this restaurant. Supposedly it is a family of restaurants in NC so we expected a higher standard. Not worth the visit.

“Keep driving!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012 via mobile

We wished we had stopped at one of the nearby chains. With the exception of a friendly waitress and a good order of scallops broiled plain, this was a disaster. Reception was cool and uncaring, grilled pork chops and chicken were overdone and as hard as shingles, shrimp and fries were cold, baked potatoes undercooked, vegetables boiled to death, and unappetizing salads and dressings. There are many other choices nearby.

“Great seafood for a good price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2012

If I want a large quantity of food, especially take out for my family this is my stop. They will cook the food to your specifications. They are a little stingy on condiments, but other than that- the portions are generous. The resturaunt has a great family atmosphere. Staff is generally friendly.
