We enjoyed our food we ate here. I had the Crab Claws and they were fired just right. My daughter had the Catfish and she enjoyed her's. I love the slaw, cornbread and pickled onion.

Good food, mostly fried food, catfish, hush puppies, and fries served with cornbread on an aluminum plate. Feed the fish when you're done with dinner
