We went for dinner and it was very busy (for us, a good sign). When the food arrived, we were not disappointed. Loved the chowder!

We gave this place another try since we weren't able to eat here the last two tries. We decided to come at 2pm when there's no lunch rush or dinner crowd. We were seated quickly, but not by a welcoming staff. Waitress took our order and it took forever and a day for the food to come out. There was... More

They had Frog Legs on the menu which are hard to find. I have had better but they were good. I ate there a second time and had horrible service.

I suspect this place was once a Captain D's Seafood. Food was above average for that chain but no where near what you want at the beach. I had fried scallops and nothing was wrong but nothing special about them either. Guy waiting on me obviously had other things to do even though I was there after 8 pm and... More

Great value for the money. Yummy fried shrimp and clam strips served with choice of 2 sides. Honestly could have shared this dish. I was unable to finish my dinner. Many choices are available with the "you pick two". Friends ordered shrimp and scallops, husband ordered broiled grouper. Would recommend this restaurant, reasonably priced. Friendly wait staff!

Very busy restaurant that serves fresh seafood at good prices. The portions are large and priced lower than other restaurants that call seven or eight small shrimp a generous portion. We ate shrimp at three different restaurants and this is the only one that was filling.

Reasonably price and very fresh shrimp makes a winner for me. We had broiled and fried shrimp and a deviled crab. While I was not crazy about the crab, the broiled shrimp was great and the fried shrimp was delicately breaded and perfect. There was a brief wait as the place was packed at 6:45 on Thursday. We would return... More

I had not been there for many years because it was not a good experience the last time. I decided to just give them another try and I am so glad that I did. Family turned over management to Abbi and she has done a great job of turning things around. I love to see a busy restaurant because that... More
