We ate here and ordered the fried catfish and shrimp dinners. We were very pleased given that this is a local restaurant in Montgomery. The service was good. The restaurant appeared clean and well-managed. I would eat here again if I ever return to Montgomery.

We love to share a seafood platter here. There is plenty of food for two on one platter..the place in Guntersville is right on the lake and is a beautiful setting. This is a great place to eat

The restaurant stays very busy, so be prepared to wait a while for a table. The food came out hot and fresh. The restaurant score of 82 left us curious. Maybe it was due to the staff and restrooms.

I love this place. The food is good and the staff are great. It's somewhat of a tourist draw but you really should stop to visit. The downtown strip has really come along in recent years. Montgomery has really improved itself.

Everything was perfection! Wonderful food and great selection. Our family of 20+ enjoyed exceptional service and all of us loved every morsel. We were a little leary of a seafood chain (dreaded something like Captain D's) but the reviews convinced us to give it a...More

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We arrived at end of happy hour and the waiter was quick to point out half price on a dozen oysters. We order one dozen raw and one dozen charbroiled both were excellent. Had the catch of the day cobia and...More
