Had to try the fried chicken. Delicious, crispy, moist chicken. Loved the fries and the hush-puppies were just heavenly. This is a former church I was told, so they have lots of extra rooms for groups to meet in for meals. the prices were very reasonable. I plan on returning here.

The only reason I even give this three stars is because the steak was fantastic. Pretty much everything else was mediocre at best. The flounder had zero flavor and the service was just ok. All in all of you go get the steak, it's by far the only reason I'd go back

Fried Chicken is excellent. Our small group tried the shrimp, steak and claws. All good. Decor is just country, but very clean. McLin's is a local favorite and all their food is good. Always crowded and sometimes there is a little bit of waiting on your order, but the service is terrific.

This place has rave reviews from all the locals but it can't even try to compete with a real, nice steak house. The staff was very friendly but the atmosphere is severely lacking (like eating in a basement at a picnic table) as is the food. The steak was overpriced for a fatty piece of meat.

The steak was really good and the fried crab claws. You get a lot of food so don't over order. You will be full. Fried chicken was great too but it's hard to mess up fried chicken. We will return again.

Steak here is amazing. The shrimp is to die for and don't miss the onion rings and or crab claws. Though not well advertised they go have grilled shrimp too. It is often better than you get on the gulf!

Place Ok Food Ok It's always crowed so my boyfriend and I decided to try. We think it's little bit expensive for nothing special. Ps: We don't like much fried food.

We started going to McLin's in 1984 while in the Army and still love it today. Ambiance is perfect. Like dining in the 60's. Now for the food. Yes it's all fried, but fried to perfection. The onion rings are as good as they get. Outstanding appetizer! Then the catfish, oysters, and shrimp are as good as anywhere. We actually... More
