Great shrimp! Has a very light batter and a great dipping sauce. Their sides were great - green beans, squash casserole, and Cole slaw. Save room for their pie! Yummy banana cream and coconut cream the day we were there. Reasonable prices. Remember CASH only.

This restaurant needs no billboard because "word of mouth" has perpetuated its business for decades now. To say they have cornered the market on the best shrimp in town would be an understatement! The fried shrimp is amazing! Just look around when you visit and you'll see plates piled high with their delectable, lightly battered, golden shrimp! Their homemade dipping... More

Food is fine, They have a lot of fried choices. Some of foods taste like they've been frozen. Although, the clam chowder is to die for!

Famous for fried shrimp but I had tilapia. Excellent as always. We've eaten here several times over the last 20 years when visiting the area. Delicious. Cash only.

Great seafoods. Fried breading is unusual but tasty. Hush puppies big , with onion. Everything is slightly under fried and delicious. Bustling restaurant. Waiting line, no reservations , cash only, no alcohol. Clean, friendly home like atmosphere with efficient staff. Reasonably priced menu. No alcohol served. Don't miss it if on Anastasia Island just over the Lions Bridge.
