The menu had some great options. Food was superb. Staff was nice and friendly. One thing i liked more than anything was the wait time. Packed house and still got my order without haste 5 stars isnt enough!

Great service and great food. Wish I had tried the crab special, they looked amazing. The crab claws and homemade sauce was excellent. The po-boys are huge!!!

Very good seafood at good prices! The waitress was great! Maybe have a little more seafood options that aren't fried is the only advise I would give

My family and I came here for a late lunch on 9/24/2016. I loved the look of the place, and it was a tradition in my husband's family to always come here. The service was pleasant but slow, and the girl misunderstood a few things (ex. We got an unsweet tea instead of a sweet tea). Nothing that was a... More
