“Have never eaten anything bad here.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

Their seafood is always good and fresh but have tried their huge hamburgers and the best chicken fried steak I've ever eaten. It came with mashed potatoes and corn. Real down home food. It's a small place but they serve up big portions of great food and service. This is a BYOB restaurant.

“Great burgers!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2012 via mobile

This place is small but perfect for a burger. The burgers are hand made and real meat. They are huge and juicy with all the fixings! Tater tots and okra are yummy. The calamarie is a little mushy and worth it. We have been there at least 10 times and they never disappoint :)

“Best grilled snapper I've ever eaten”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2012 via mobile

My family ate here on Spring break. The place was packed, but still comfortable. It is not particularly nice, but you don't expect that in rockport. The food was phenomenal. Don't miss the crab cakes or the grilled snapper. The catfish was also excellent. The service was good. Bring your own wine or beer, or send your husband next door to pick some up. Even my kids loved this place. Don't miss it!
