Not big into seafood so I tried the chicken Alfredo based on suggestion from server. It was pretty good. My wife had shrimp and grits and she said they were good. Hush puppies were great.

I had the shrimp but my friend that was with me had the catch of the day. Vehemently had to send it back because it was not cooked got it back and it was really over cooked. They did give her a new dinner.
