The food was mediocre, we split the 6 piece fried fish. It was a large portion but just ok quality. The fried okra was good. The beans & rice were burned or had a strange flavor. The waitress did not inquire if we didn’t like...More

Serving sizes here are huge! My wife and sister in law split a fish, chicken and shrimp combo. I had six shrimp and six oysters. Way to much food for us! We also tried fried pickles, fried green tomatoes and cheese sticks. Everything was awesome!

The food was a reasonable price, but it was just ok. We ordered a burger and fries and a shrimp plate. The burger was too big. I hope it was real beef. The shrimp was ok. I won't be going back anytime soon.
