We had a delicious seafood dinner at sunset. The fried oysters and shrimp were so good as were the fries and hush puppies. Our server Ethan was a delightful young man, very helpful and took the time despite it being very busy!

Delicious shrimp, side dish, crab cakes and UFO beer just right. Ethan gave excellent attention and service. A very enjoyable evening on the porch when not the busy summer days. Ethan needs a promotion! B and G from Georgia

We have been here several times. Nice menu, nice staff, potions are generous. Not over priced. Has a bar and a nice location near the marina. Tucked back off by itself.

We had a little wait to sit on porch but it was worth it. The sunset is great from porch. Had steamed shrimp and hush puppies. Excellent and fresh. Everyone else enjoyed their food. Would def go again.

Fun place to grab a meal. Just off the water by a marina, it has a genuine "southern" feel to it. Super tasty peel-and-eat shrimp. Great crabcakes. Honestly, I'm always wary of crabcakes, but these were flavorful, moist, hot, and big! No bits of shell...More
