Great seafood place. The staff is super friendly and the food is very good. The meals come with complimentary hush puppies and coleslaw so good that I could just about make a meal of them!

Dropped in for a late lunch and was quickly seated with drink brought out before I got a look at the menu. Shrimp and chicken finger combo was cooked promptly and at the table piping hot. Chicken was very good (shrimp was good but out shined by the chicken). Came with complimentary slaw and hush puppies.

The staff were all very friendly! Sort of seemed like a big family with frequent customers. The appetizers (complementary hush puppies and coleslaw; and the fried pickles we ordered) weren't bad, they just really lacked seasoning. We were kinda disappointed...until we got our BBQ pork sandwiches. They were AMAZING. The pork is smoked on site and it is so very... More

Went to this restaurant on a Wednesday evening in December with out-of-state guests. We are new to the area and had not been here before. We loved the building and the server. The young lady told us about the history of the building and got the answers to any questions that we asked and she didn't know. She brought cole... More

Passing through on our way home from Destin, Florida, this restaurant was recommended by hotel staff and we were delighted we took their recommendation. Historical building (150 yr old log cabin transported to current sight) provided great atmosphere. The proprietor came over to our table and talked about the history. Wait staff was very pleasant and helpful. Hush puppies and... More
