Order the flouder! Fried looked wonderful but I ordered the grilled, cajun style. Careful though, there are bones.

Well, its a family favorite. The wife loves it due to it "southern" feel. The portions are massive and the sweet tea flows constant. Prices are good, and service is ok. Its a busy place, and usually requires a wait. The food is great. Well worth the wait.

We were looking to eat next door at a popular seafood restaurant but were told it was a 2 hour wait. Walked next door and 9 of us were seated immediately. Friendly and very efficient staff. Food was beyond excellent for the price. Skip all the "seafood" places and eat here !

Great service! Great atmosphere! I ordered the Flounder Special, but had the flounder grilled with Lemon Pepper. THE BEST FLOUNDER I HAVE EVER TASTED. Amazing. Make sure you try it! Taking leftovers home!

If you want cheap seafood and canned vegetables that are subpar with okay hush puppies and imitation butter at inflated prices, then by all means go to this restaurant. Not only is the food just average but the ownership is very rude. Obviously they have enough business that they do not care whether you come back or not. Don't expect... More

Went to oak island on a trip and stopped by the restaurant. Got a shrimp and oyster plate. The food was ok, it is the same as you can get at the local seafood house near your house, deep fried frozen seafood. Our waitress was a young lady but very polite. The cashier which was the owner I assume was... More
