We started off with a shrimp and crab cheesecake appetizer that was simply delicious. Ended with a peach Cobbler with ice cream for dessert. Our server Barry was excellent.

Southern hospitality from Shelby and Skyler and good food. She-Crab soup was delicious and shrimp fried just right. We loved our view of the marshes.
