“Best seafood within 50 miles”

Have driven back from the beach and gone here to get seafood!! Always a friendly staff. Sweet tea is great!! Light batter. Not everyone knows how to cook clam strips!

“Great prices for great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

In town for the weekend and ordered from here both days. I can't tell you how the restaurant is because we used their to go service both days. Food is very good. Must try if you like seafood. Make sure to ask for everything before you leave, like utensils, drawn butter and whatever else you like. You will be glad you stopped in! Will definately go back next time in the area!

Service is good as well as the food, they have large portions for the price even the small plates are pilled high.

“What you'd expect and deserve in the south”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

I go here a few times a year when I am in Danville and i have been going here since they opened. It's good seafood if you stick to the basics; fish, popcorn shrimp, clam strips. The breading is thick and is usually fried very well and has a mild crunch - not too hard.

If you are there when they offer calimari, pass on it. It was very rubbery without a distinctive flavor.

The portions are huge, even when you select the smaller plate, so I have never made it to the desserts.

“Good family restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Service is fair but friendly, food is better than average. Price is terrific for the large portions you get. Gus has run this place for years and has made it a great place for families to meet for dinner. Well worth a visit.
