I ordered low country stir fry and was amazed at how wonderful it was. Crabby dip and chips was delicious! Would definitely return!

The seafood was very good, and the service was excellent. 6 adults so we ordered a variety of different things. The steamed oysters, boiled shrimp and seafood platters were all very good. I thought the prices were reasonable for the amount of food.

It was tasty but a little expensive for what we got. We had the steamed clams, Alaskan crab, and shrimp.

Servers and owner/manager were very nice and friendly. My husband's drink was actually made twice as strong as described by the bartender which it was. Better more alcohol then not enough as she described. I ordered the lite fried oysters with baked potato, hush puppies and salad (salad was $2.25 extra but wasn't in the mood for fries and didn't...

We arrived before 5 P.M. with part of our party. The rest were literally 3 minutes behind. We were told we could not be seated until everyone arrived, Then a staff member asked us to wait outside. There was no one else waiting, and the temperature was in the upper 90s. When my husband remarked that it was hot out... More

The food was fine; not the best, not the worst. Part of the dining experience is atmosphere; or in this case, lack thereof. Several prior reviews reference "rules" and they were not well received. I'm sure that is due in large part to how the message was delivered. I can envision a "no soup for you" approach to "the rules".... More

I had the stuffed flounder and was very impressed with it. My friends shared a steamed platter that was average. It is a seafood restaurant with a diner atmosphere due to the owner barking orders. It made for an uncomfortable dining experience and I wouldn't return again due to it. The owner needs to train her staff or reprimand them... More

I ordered a ribeye steak cooked medium. The steak was cooked very well done with no red at all. I sent it back and asked it to be cooked medium. Another lady came back a few minutes later and explained that they can only cook their steaks rare or well done, not medium. I am allergic to shellfish so I... More
