Still the best traditional seafood in the area. Fish, shrimp, & oysters are lightly breaded & fried perfectly. You can also get the seafood prepared in other ways. Of course the menu offers a good variety of other dishes. Nice lunch menu also. Service has...More

First impression was that it had it's best days in the past. Everything seemed 'tired' and they were going through the motions. Disappointed in the food although I've had worse. Bland and average sums it up.

The flounder was just OK. The fries were soggy and limp. The hushpuppies were sweeter than donut holes. The service was fine - but only 4 booths were occupied. The price was high for what you get. I won't be back.
