My friend had the grouper and I had the crab cakes. We started with raw oysters, which were cold and delicious. Had drinks from the bar and listened to a great guitar duo. Great food and atmosphere. The burgers looked nice. Try the hush puppies they're soft and tasty. A lot of food for the money!

Recommend by somebody. This place has been there for 60 years. Can't believe we have never tried this spot. It is a hole in the wall but the food is awesome.

Out of the way location. You really have too look for it. But once you get there the food was good but not great, and the service was too slow for the place that only had a few couples in the dining room. May be better for fried food than grilled.

We decided to try a new place. So glad we did! The server was great, the food was fresh and fast. My husband and daughter had the burger and loved it. I had the crab cakes and they were delicious. Desserts are homemade too! Small family owned business that is great!

We went for lunch on a friend's recommendation. The server was scattered and there were only 4 tables of customers. One of the guys was trying to ask her out so she was more concerned about flirting with him than bringing plates for our appetizers. We left before getting our lunch because we waited 30 minutes for a bowl of... More

This is a small local place that someone recommended to us, so we tried it. It was a great place for local seafood. The food was great....really fresh. The service was great and fast. Will definitely go back on our next visit to the beach.

This is a restaurant not to miss for reasonably priced seafood. The food is delicious and the service is excellent. Our family of 8 cannot go just anywhere for seafood .....most places are way out of our budget. But we can all eat here and the bill is not out of sight.

We came in for lunch recently and we each ordered the catch of the day fish sandwich. It stated market price but when we got the bill we were astounded! The grouper had a $7.00 up charge on the regular $10.00 sandwich and since we asked for it to be grilled...that was an extra $1.00!!! Are you kidding me? $18.00... More
