Everything was great- from the drinks to the food! Highly recommend fried crab claws appetizer! We got fried seafood platters - everything was cooked to perfection. Ask for Carol - she's fun, knowledgeable about the menu, fast & very friendly. We had a fabulous evening and will definitely return!!

Had drinks and dinner by far one of the best places for stuffed crabs, for smokers outside dinning and drinks are perfect one of my favorite since hubby enjoys cigs with his cocktails.

We went to this restaurant after reading some reviews that it was a hidden gem. This place probably appeals to an older crowd. I ordered the Mahi and received 2 large fillets of it. The food overall was bland though and I found it difficult to finish the meal because there was no flavor. Service was good and the server... More

The grilled grouper sandwich is excellent. To me the oysters were bland and lack the briny flavor. Our waitress, who said it was her first day and whose name I cannot remember, was very good. I thought the gumbo was good, but my wife thought it was too spicy. I would return to this restaurant for the sandwiches but not... More
