The staff is great very helpful and honest, great family business they have been opened for 30yrs I see why. The food is very fresh and affordable the crab cakes are HUGE!! Must try and also the macaroni salad. My favorite was the jumbo fried shrimp I must say they were great I will definitely visit again.

You cant beat the prices and food is awesome but almost two hours to eat in a not-fine dining place was irritating. They were short-staffed... Our waitress had so many tables, we didnt get the attention a customer should get. We saw a gentleman walk out because he was standing there for a good 15 min. & no one approached... More

Friends were recomending this restaurant as great so we though we would try it. Overall the food was good, not great but there were several dishes that were downright CHEAP. Great seafood on a budget. We ordered the more expensive dishes and they didn't live up to my expectations. We went as a party of 6 and had the Bucket... More

Never had a bad meal here, even though I wouldn't recommend anything fried - the owner (or whoever is behind the seafood window) can tell you where every piece of fish he has came from, and it's locally owned. Good prices, good food, not much in the way of atmosphere, but is a BYO - I always go here when... More

We always drove past this place and one day we decided to stop in and give it a try. The service was fine, the food was ok. We have gone back to just driving by.

We ate there on the recommendation of friends and were not disappointed. The food was excellent. The staff was professional and friendly. Food portions are the correct size for a "healthy eater". I strongly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

I call this a little gem cause it looks small..I didn't expect the amount of food and the quality...and even more ..very inexpensive!! If you want to eat seafood at a not so expensive price like your commercial big name restaurants..then this is the place to go!! Try it and see for yourself...great service..great food..great portions..great price!!

Wasn't bad, but certainly nothing to write home about. Had the scallops, which were fairly average. Prices were not bad...commensurate with the quality of food. Restaurant was what it was...wasn't fine dining, and didn't pretend to be. If you're craving seafood, this is probably one of the better choices, but there are other, better choices in the immediate vicinity.

This place is just ok. There is nothing that was really great. We had the flounder and the stuffed shrimp. It is sad when we can say tha slaw and the bread were the best part of the meal. The rest was just ok. There were a lot of regular customers when we were there, but they all ordered deli... More
