My family loves this place. When it's good, then its a 5/5. When it's not, then the shrimp can sometimes smell like ammonia and the fish can be old. I hope this gets corrected soon.

for fresh fish in Southside and surrounding areas, the place to go. They serve fresh seafood daily, lunch and dinner.

When you first walk in you are hit in the face with an overwhelming amount of cigarette smoke, completely unappealing. I didn't even know there were restaurants that still allowed that? There was no music so it had an eerie quietness to it, I was afraid to talk, like we might get in trouble if we made too much noise.... More

As always I had a great meal. Love the hushpuppies and fresh coleslaw. Food is always fresh and cooked as asked. Wait staff is friendly, does a good job servicing the table.

From the fresh seafood to a delicious juicy steak, you can't go wrong! My family and friends have eaten here for years and enjoy being greeted at the door like family by their great staff! Whether they were catering three of our family weddings or dropping off some homemade soup when we were sick, Stephen and Sarah (the owners) are... More

Food was mediocre at best, the service was poor (staff was rude and extremely unprofessional), the place was dirty (floors, tables and chairs sticky) and it was Uncomfortably HOT in the building. The place needs a major overhaul. I do not recommend. The food had potential, but it wasn't reaching it!

We loved the service, quick and very helpful with menu. The food was delivered slow, but it was cooked perfect. Well worth the small wait time. Yummy from beginning to end. I had shrimp and grits and my husband had stuffed talapia.
