Shrimp basket was very good. Was there today (Saturday) and became very busy. Had to wait for the order approximately 20 minutes. Only have 3 or 4 people working. Restaurant is in a corner of city market. Limited tables inside. (~12) Additional outside.

The salad bar was very small but good. Best value on the Island. We tried the Love Shack last year and did not make that mistake again.

I had a BBQ Plate to go. The meat was perfectly cooked and the sauce was phenomenal. The Brunswick stew was seasoned and chock full of pork, chicken and veggies. Sweet potato fries could have been crispier. You can dine in or get it to...More
