“Great service but disappointed in food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

This was my first visit and I ordered the shrimp basket with hushpuppies and coleslaw. I was not expecting shrimp fried in corn meal ( this was a first!) that tasted like catfish. The shrimp were also rubbery and over cooked. The slaw was bland..... the hushpuppies were overcooked as well. 45 seconds less in the fryer could have made a big difference.

The service was excellent.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012 via mobile

Had the half smoked chicken dinner at the bar. It was delicious. Service was friendly and prompt taking in consideration that it's a Friday night. . Chicken was juicy and flavorful, the corn bread isn't the best I've had though.

“Solid food and service. Great for families.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

Have eaten here a few times. Both the shrimp and catfish are very good. They also have a great Cuban sandwich. Have not been disappointed with any of the sides other than the okra is over-breaded.

“Good fish.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2011

There were 4 of us that ate here for an early dinner. I thought that the place was closed as there were only 3 cars in the parking lot. But it was only 5:30pm so they were just warming up.

We were seated right away. They have a large selection of vegetables that are not listed on their internet menu. We were pleasantly surprised. We all got the 2 piece catfish basket. I had white beans, hush-puppies and fries with mine. The catfish was very good as were the beans. The sweat tea was perfect.

Good food and service was enjoyed by all of us.
