Very crowded. Seems to be more of a watering hole than restaurant. Food was ok, nothing special about the seafood, and they serve on plastic plates. Should be at the beach.

This is your classic dive seafood joint that Birmingham lacks. Very cool atmosphere and great service. Unfortunately, we had to be quick, but the food was all very good. The gumbo may have lacked a bit of flavor, red beans & rice/sausage was classic, the...More

I had heard good things, but having grown up at the coast and having lived in Louisianna, I just didn't 'get it'. I did not enjoy their 'specialties'. The oyster dishes didn't wow me, the service was just ok, and the atmosphere wasn't anything special....More
