Squash stew was incredible. Shrimp was one of the best I have ever had and I’ve lived in Florida for 50 years. Staff was very attentive and sweet. A must eat.

Family owned gem. Excellent fried seafood. Shrimp is the locals favorite. They are a cash only place and do not serve any alcoholic beverages. Get there early as they are always busy.

The food and service can never be beat. The fried shrimp, cheesy grits, mashed potatoes and gravy are always the best in town. The service is always fast and courteous.

Excellent food. Restaurant is very clean. Staff is courteous and friendly. First time to eat here, only had to wait about 15 minutes. My wife and I both had the 8 shrimp plate. It is more than enough. Definitely recommend.
