Came here on a lunch break from work and ordered the soup and salad. Salad bar was pretty pathetic. Mushrooms looked like they were about to grow mushrooms. The lettuce trough only had the whites left. No one seemed to be checking on it. Most of the rest of the vegetables looked pretty bad unless they had been preserved (jalapenos,... More

FABULOUS waitress helped us since this was our first visit. She recommend the seafood platter for 2 (we had two adults and two children ages 7 and 9) and allowed us all to get the salad bar for $39.95 total! The fried shrimp are beyond words. Definitely different from B & J's in Darien, but equally delicious. I don't know... More

This is one of our favorite seafood restaurants for good basic fried shrimp. You won't find frill and fancy here. It's a great value for your money. The food is plentiful and tasty. The servers are friendly. The sweet tea is just perfect to accompany that bite-sized shrimp dinner. I usually get the small appetite portion of bite sized shrimp... More

Stopped for lunch and was pleased with quality of food, reasonable prices and especially the helpful and friendly waitress. Homemade pies (key lime and pecan) are a can't miss bargain at 1.99 a slice. I had a cheeseburger, hand made and juicy. The special,of the day was fried green tomatoes, which were served hot and had just the right amount... More

We stopped in at lunch! Great service! We had coconut shrimp on the lunch special, homemade onions rings and deep fried mac & cheese. Loved they brought me my own pitcher of tea! We were just headed to Savannah and stopped in! Very clean and updated.

Driving the back roads and stumbled on this roadside restaurant. Looked at the salad bar and decided to pass, although others thought it was very good. We ordered the fish (flounder) sandwich and the shrimp wrap. Both were very tasty, the fish was firm and hot, the shrimp wrap was also flavorful. The coleslaw was finely chopped and seasoned just...

I've eaten here a few times. I find the service to be pretty good but the food uninspired and a bit expensive for the price.
