This is a good place to go for seafood in Waynesville. A very good assortment of both fried and broiled selections. Scallops were very good as well as the stuffed red snapper. The only snafu was that the salad was served about 60 seconds before the main course. The problem es are very reasonable.

Nice daily specials. Great variety. Loved the flounder and shrimp. This is a good restaurant for the family. Hush puppies and sweet are delicious!

Service was ok, catfish and calamari was excellent, husband had fried shrimp, some tough others were ok. Both baked potatoes were over done Hush puppies were really tasty and coleslaw was average. Probably won't stop there again

It was our first time in Waynesville and I had been wanting seafood. The server was nice and they put plenty of food on your plate. I had the shrimp and Alaska white fish. Didn't care to much for the fish but the shrimp was good.

My wife and I were in the mood for some seafood. This place changed our appetite quickly. We didn't finish our food and informed waitress of food being cold. She apologized, then gave us our check. She smelled like cigarettes. Won't be back.

Menu is huge and the prices are reasonable. I had the lunch broiled cod, and thought is was very good. My only criticism is that the fish portion is small, but at $7.95, you get two sides plus a load of hush puppies. I had a baked potato, but could have done away with the aluminum foil wrap. Most often... More

From all the food that I have eaten here, it has been fried. If you are in the mood for fried fish and fries, this is a good place. The decor and furnishings need a little love. My husband likes the Alaskan White fried and I usually get what ever is on the special. It all basically takes the same... More

Have gone here over 15 times. daily specials for only $4.99, good quality and they fill you up. Clean and open space. Plenty of parking, near many other businesses and shopping. Friendly waitresses and owners.

I'm from Florida so I guess I know what good seafood taste like. First of all the waitress said everything is fresh. Maybe she doesn't know the meaning of fresh, because this fish is not that. It's mostly fried which can mask the not fresh taste a bit. Unfortunately the fish is dry and all I tasted was the breading.... More
