Picked up boiled and fried shrimp for large group. Excellent quality and fast service in a packed out store. Recommend this for fresh and prepared seafood.

I’m so happy that we stopped here for lunch today! I ate a half dozen of local crabs (steamed) and it was yummy! My husband enjoyed his pan fried oysters and my mother-in-law loved the clouded sandwich. A must-do for lunch! Outside dining only.
