Good food and value. Bartender was great and drinks worth the $. Staff was so friendly. When hushpuppies arrived, we started to get a little skeptical. Not my favorite (very crisp). We sent back and ordered garlic biscuits. These were ok but a little done on top. The entree - 3 seafood broiled combo - was great! Spouse loved the... More

We ordered the Shrimp Wreck, Mahi Mahi, Golden Lobster and the Double Breasted among other things and all were super tasty! Would definitely go back!

Went there to eat on a weekend night, employees were outside smoking and when we drove up they yelled at us to let us know that they had a gas leak and the repairman was on the way. Customers still inside. (gas leak and smoking?)

Our entire family went here while on our vacation.. all the employees were very polite and courteous! The waitresses were going over and beyond to give total satisfaction. I was totally amazed! This is a very busy restaurant! And I recommend getting there early, do to the fact they get very busy in the later evening hours. I would recommend... More

I felt obligated to write a review since we almost didn't come due to some of the other reviews. Called ahead for 6pm reservation and was sat right away. The establishment is clean and our server Alicia was very friendly. She got our drinks and complimentary hush puppies right away. They were very tasty and you can tell homemade. I... More

Food was just ok, overpriced. Atmosphere was sub par. For the price of the food, the experience was poor. Most importantly, the owner was beyond rude on the couple of occasions we have visited. We will take our money elsewhere.

If you want a good meal, at good prices, with big portion sizes and good staff and location, this is where to come. Surf and turf burger was awesome...The cole slaw is great and they give you o-ring hush puppies as an appetizer. Someone with me got the scallops, and wow, they got a whole bunch of them, nice size,... More

Wait staff is good but overwhelmed. Food took 1 hour to come to table. Orders were wrong and quality was poor for the typical tourist fare ( hamburgers/fried seafood.). Expensive but a good view.

The food and service here are outstanding. I most recently had the shaded mahi and asked for asparagus (not on menu but used in another recipe). They graciously honored my request. Best Ever! The hush puppy 'rings' and other breads are fresh and steamy. I'll be back.

We decided to try this restaurant the second night of our vacation. The menu was very pricey as we paid $25 a person for our meals. The pick 2 seafood was $24 and the pick 3 was $25. So we got the pick three so we could have the one more seafood for $1 more. I ordered the flounder, Scallops,... More
