“Greasy food and bad service!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2010

Ate here about 5:00 tonight and they were not too busy. We spent quite a bit of time looking at the menu trying to decide what to try, which is why i can't understand why the waitress didn't offer/ suggest the specials they had going on, that we knew nothing about until we had already orderd and heard others being offerd a three course special (which we would have tried) and an all you can eat shrimp special! The hushpuppies they bring were very good but we practically had to BEG to get any! Actually unless we flagged our waitress down we didn't get any attention at all. The fried food was really, really greasy, my friend said that grease was pretty much all he could taste while eating his seafood platter. Crab legs were ok. This place was also expensive and I expected more for my money than what I got. Very disappointed and will not return!

“Can't say anything nice about except for server”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2009

1. Place is seriously over priced. Dinner for 4 with no alcohol 1 app 1 desert ran 112. before tip.
2. Food is greasy, salty, and overcooked. I could almost swear that they were commercially processed frozen dinners. But that would have been an improvement. Our group ordered various things from the menu from the fresh fish, fried seafood to ribs and chicken.
3. Decor rather boring and the restaurant didn't have a clean feeling about it.
4. Service was really good. Waitress was pleasant and attentive.
