Great place to eat and hang out. George and Cassie do a great job of providing great food and a relaxed atmosphere. I love the surf and turf, the mahi mahi, crab cake sliders, and the catfish is great. Check it out !

Food was delicious and very reasonably priced. Son got the steamer bucket and it was a very generous portion with sides included. Oysters were good too and very reasonably priced. Lobster Mac and cheese was excellent- very rich. Hubby loved his Bloody Mary too

Exciting menu with exceptional sounding offerings, food is very tasty but the portions are very small, it is very pricey, and the service is only fair. Located in an old building with noticeably slanting floors, seating is spartan and less comfortable than most diners. I...More

Saw the reviews on TA and decided to stop in with my wife. Great surprise off the beaten path. We will definitely be back. The steamed crawfish was excellent. The littleneck clams were great as well.

Yes, I think All you can eat Crab Legs is one of their daily specials, but I don't know which day. You will need to call them and get those details. I think I saw a Low Country Boil listed as a daily special too, but... More
