My family and I went there on a Thursdau night. The restaurant socially distanced inside, like other restaurants, with every other table available. There were many servers moving around. The area we were seated in had about 4 tables in use when we arrived. We...More

I think they changed cooks. I used to ride there all the time on the bike. Last 2 times I got fried pickles & calamari. They cooked them together so my calamari tasted like fried pickles. They beer selection is very poor. mostly IPA but...More

My husband and I have camped several times at nearby Fort McAllister, and have always marveled at the crowds that gather at this little restaurant. We finally tried it a couple of nights ago, and we were so pleased. The location and view was wonderful,...More

This is a very interesting restaurant. It is on the River Ogeechee. We sat in the indoor patio area - quite chilly, but charming! The server was very good and cheery. The food was good, but the hushpuppies were really good, as was the coleslaw.

Low key, very relaxed, fun place to visit. Our entrees were great and plentiful. Watching boats and taking in the coastal breeze is not to be missed.
