Excellent place to visit especially if your traveling partner is Barbara Jean. First the drinks were ample and well prepared. Cheryl was an excellent server. Catfish sandwich was great. Cabbage truly wonderful, just like my own. Would recommend to any foodie.

Nice, family friendly restaurant. Pleasant outdoor seating available. Excellent, prompt service. Prices reasonable for what you get, but not cheap. From the other reviews and our own experience, the seafood is really excellent, but some other dishes are good but nothing to write home about...More
