Overall a pleasant lunch. Most plates are fried but you can get grilled. Plates are $13 for small and $14.75 for large - and the servings are generous. Sandwiches are around $8. Beautiful view from the back and the nice deck. There is also hand...More

Rustic resturant overlooking the water, serving up fresh fish and seafood. The Cajun catfish is light, flavorful and plentiful. The seafood platters are huge- and nothing is overcooked. I've had the shrimp, scallops, oysters, deviled crab...and, of course, the catfish. Great stop on the way...More

My husband and I ate here for the first time today. The food was hot and fresh. Portions are huge. The wait staff was prompt and kept checking on us. We had no complaints. We will be returning.

Great family owned restaurant. Never had a bad meal in over 20 years. Great food, great service, great atmosphere. Get a back table so you can see the river. The shrimp and fish with bowl of clam chowder is fantastic.

Went for lunch on a Saturday. Friendly and fast service. We each had the small portions - I had shrimp and my hubby had oysters. Came with slaw, hush puppies and fries. Cost was $30 for both and well worth it. Definite repeat.

We had the small combination of shrimp and oysters. It was cooked absolutely perfect. I don’t like my oysters over cooked. They were large, very moist and perfectly flavored with very light breading. The shrimp were also lightly breaded. I was amazed at the generous...More

Has great views of the river & of the Hummingbird Feeders if you are seated at a table by the window. We started with a shared Cup of "Clam Chowder" which had no flavor this time. It tasted as if it came from a can....More

We love coming here for seafood. My husband and our friends got fried catfish, shrimp and scallops. I got grilled catfish and scallops. The food is really good. Every time my daughter comes, she gets the frog legs. The atmosphere isn't very romantic. It is...More
