The atmosphere is just about what you would expect in a swampy restaurant, and the friendly service makes this place a keeper with any fisherman. They serve more than you can eat, you won't leave hungry. Can't wait to go back!

Nice location. Overpriced. My vegetables were still frozen, fritters were overcooked, hard as rocks. Ordered Mac and cheese for our grandson, it came out of a box. Rice had no flavor. Overall, bad. Will not go back.
