My bestie had a club sandwich bigger than her head. I had a wonderful oyster po-boy. I can't even remember what my husband ate because I was so enraptured by this dang sammie. Nice, fast service. We'll be back.

Had the oyster po boy which was good, and the hushpuppies were great. They have tater tots which my husband loved. Basically just inexpensive bar food, but good quality.

We ate here for lunch. It is a small restaurant with a full service bar. The servers are friendly and attentive (unlike at The Crab Shack). The food was very flavorful and FRESH! I had the fish tacos which were delicious. The fish was well seasoned and the coating was very light. Not a heavy breading which would mask the... More
