My wife and I have been coming here for years. They have a small salad bar and it takes more than 5 minutes to get your food. You don't want to fill up on salad, and if you want fast food, go to McD's. This is a seafood heaven that should have fishing boats behind it, not a trailer. The... More

Its really unfortunate that the service was so bad because the food was excellent once we ever received it. It took an hour and half to get our dinner. There was only a few tables when we arrived but you could tell by the mess on all the tables that they had been busy. So we were trying to be... More

Freddie Knows Food has long been a fan of the Whale's Tail restaurant. The restaurant has been around for many years and adjoins the owner's home. Seafood is king here, and although there are other items offered for the land lovers, your best bet is to sample some of the delicious shrimp, oysters and fried fish dishes. I usually order... More

The atmosphere was very nice and dress was casual. It seemed as if a lot of the customers frequented the restaurant because they knew each other. We arrived at 5:45 and was served our food very fast. We all were very pleased with the quality and exceptional taste of the food (all ordered seafood).It did appear that all of the... More

My husband always wanted to try this place and we were not disappointed. We both got seafood and it was wonderful. Fried oysters and shrimp were really delicious. Will definitely make this a new favorite.

This is our go-to local seafood restaurant. The shrimp and catfish are always fresh, as are the oysters and scallops (in season). The meals come with good sides, like baked potatoes, fries, etc. and there is a pretty good salad/soup bar. The steaks are also very good, but we opt for the seafood. Family restaurant, not at all fancy, but... More
