Local haunt very laid back with a bar but little else. Chowder was good after a cold boat ride but the place was mostly empty

The place looks rather crude but don’t let that fool you. The deep fried oysters and shrimp is absolutely fabulous as well as the grouper and the crab cakes are divine. A place to return to over and over again.

One of the only places in town to get something to eat. Staff very friendly. Only did to-go orders. Decent wraps. Breakfast (eggs, grits) very good. while we didn't eat in, looked like a go-to local diner.

When you find all the fishing g guides eating at one place, you know its the place to go. Friendly atmosphere, good food, and hot coffee.

Good plain food, what you would expect for a local eatery. Portion sizes ample. There are options available if you want to stay away from fried foods. Service prompt and friendly.

We ate here for breakfast twice and dinner twice during our stay in the area. Breakfast was good: we had french toast, an omelet, and eggs two different ways, and we tried both the grits and the potatoes. Everything was hot and tasty, although the...More
