You are suppose to call your order in if you are going through the drive through. If you don't they should have to pull over and wait and let the ones that called in their orders get their food. This isn't fast food.

We were on a day trip on Saturday and had been wanting to eat here. We were not disappointed, service was great and the seafood was very good. You need to get there early as there is always a wait, but tables are turned quickly.
