There is nothing fantastic about this place; however, the food was Pretty good and in- expensive. We went for dinner and both had a full meal for around $20. They have some very good daily specials and the food is well worth it.

I have only had a burger and fries here. It was very good and good value for the money. It is next to a gas station and casino. The restuarant is very clean and the staff is very friendly.

Stopped in for lunch while traveling and was surprised at what a meal we had. The place is super clean, service couldn't be better, portions are large and affordable and the fish is cooked to perfection. This isn't one of those places where fish is...More

What a great place! We really enjoyed it! I had some wings, a shrimp po'boy, and the shrimp and oyster platter! Not only was the food amazing, but the service was awesome as well! Will definitely be back and highly recommend it!!!

Great food, quick, efficient. Very small place. Big on flavor. Homemade rolls!! Would give 5* if had more healthy side dishes. Didn't prefer the coleslaw. Sides don't match excellence of entrees.

The ads say "home of the jumbo shrimp", and they are right. We liked our dinner so much we went back for lunch the next day. Most of the seafood items are available fried or grilled. For dinner had shrimp po-boy - excellent! Lunch was...More
