So the restaurant is very worn and the help not the friendliest. It's a byob and you have to order, pay and tip up front. Then they will deliver the food. The fried pickles were delicious as were the fish and scallops. What put me...More

This place has all its standard stuff — fries, slaws, etc — but also has 3 “catches of the day”, depending on what is fresh that day. I loved the blackened Pollack I had, although I thought the fries were slightly over-done. The fried dough...More

Food and atmosphere are okay but ordering, paying and tipping at the bar {no alcohol} before you sit down and get your food is just odd, in my opinion. Definitely overpriced for what you eventually receive. My gumbo finally came when I was almost done...More

This place is not fancy on the outside. It looks like it should be on Diners, Drive ins and Dives. It is a bar with a dining area. However the food is really good! The crab cakes were delicious. My daughter enjoyed their fish tacos.

With total respect, this place looks like a hole in the wall from the street. In fact, the interior is no great surprise either. What is surprising though is the flavor, quality, and preparation of their superb fresh seafood that it offers. The focus of...More

Stopped by for the first time after racing karts at RPM earlier. We’ve been to other (more trendy) seafood places in the area but this was way more our style. It has the feel of a classic dive bar but with the bonus of being...More

It’s always thrilling to find a good restaurants but oh so much more satisfying when it’s in your backyard. Don’t be concern about the outer appearance because the food is the reason why you will go there. We decided to start with the polenta poppers...More

Whatever you eat that’ll be delicious. You can visit the place with your family comfortably. Place is kind of difficult to spot/find but worth it.
