One of our favorite restaurants in the area. The only problem is that it is most people's favorite as well....which is a good thing for them. Stays busy with a frequent wait list. Food is worth the wait. Shrimp and Grits best in town.

Nice hole in the wall! Good service, nice ambiance and the food was amazing. I had a little country boil, it changed my life. I have not had seafood this good in a really long time and I plan to be a regular

Tuesday night is all you can eat crab legs, so the wait was about 1 hour, but so worth it. Service was amazing, Owner-Randy on hand to greet guests and insure their dining experience was great. We actually had the King Crab Legs, (which wasn't the special), and they were fantastic. Bar staff kept the beers coming while we waited.... More

We've eaten here several times because of location, but the food quality is poor and the main courses are not well prepared. Desserts are very good. Seating stinks for family or party of more than two.

We have a friend who said Full Moon had the best Shrimp & Grits she had every eaten, so we decided to try it. It was very good! Not sure it was the best we have ever had but pretty close. We would defiantly go back again!....and would probably order the same thing. This is a very popular restaurant in... More

Went with my wife one evening for dinner. Char grilled oysters are exceptional. Food was ok. Jerk shrimp was a little too spick for me. I like spicy but like to taste my food. Wife thought mussels didn't have enough broth. Took a very long time just to get drinks. They had waitresses shucking their own oysters so they just... More

what a gem if you like seafood. It is a bar, where people sit and eat....there are no tables....but this is so nice, as the people are all friendly and as you eat you can chat with your neighbors, if you are so inclined. It is a very friendly atmosphere, The food is DELICIOUS! there has never been a thing... More

This is a real oyster bar...comfy wooden seats at a...bar. Have been here more than ten times. Tues is all you can eat crab legs...so the vibe can be bit more "all you can eat buffet" Wednesday is surf and turf, if you don't get there by 5, then you will likely have a wait. The food is great and... More
