Everything was great! The food, service, price...EVERYTHING! We ate on the balcony overlooking the water & the bridge that goes to Sunset Beach. I had broiled and my husband had fried seafood. It was ALL sooo good! From the hushpuppies, flounder, slaw, shrimp, and sweet tea. The service was great also, even though they had a huge party of 24... More

I highly recommend the blackened whole flounder. Reasonably priced for what you are getting. Start out with the complementary hush puppies, smothered in honey butter. Outside of the fried hush puppies, it's nice to have an option of fish that isn't fried.

The staff were very friendly and the food was so delicious. Typically the local fare is friend but this place served broiled seafood that was very fresh. The cocktails were great too!

Giving this a four not for cuisine, but for location, ambiance & most of, genuinely warm and helpful service. If you are in the area and looking for a full-menu restaurant with good view and comfortable seating, this is the best. Has a very local flavor and a true willingness to serve. Ask for seating with the water view if... More

Far from the normal beach food, this place had quite a variety of different eats. Several in our group had the normal Calabash shrimp, but we also had very good Mahi Mahi fish tacos and salmon. They offer a variety of sauces you can put over your food which is nice. The service was good and the place was clean.... More

Open only for dinner except on Thursdays, when it's open for lunch during the summer season. Bit of a wait for a table. Busy spot (noisy), food average (we each had fish), view beautiful. Short drive from The Sunset Inn; lovely park on the waterway with benches and swings to enjoy pre- or post-meal.

We went in the evening on Friday. Good service, and they sat us at a window table over looking the water. My daughter is 13 and has eaten steamed crab legs in five states. These were "the best". My husband and I ordered the captain's platter. Mine broiled, and his fried. It was PLENTY of food. I couldn't eat all... More
