We had the shrimp, catfish & a burger. They were all tasty! (The blackboard specials only run for dinner )There is also a couple of parking spaces next to the restaurant if you get lucky otherwise parking is $5 an hour.

Got there for dinner right as they opened and was glad I did, they were very busy by the time I left. The "Bless your heart" Salad was amazing and so was the Mahi. I added a tiny dessert (Blueberry Lemon Shooter) with a cup...of decaf and I was good to go. Danielle was probably the best server I've ever experienced and had a lot of tables! Would definitely visit again if Im ever back in WBMore

DH and I stopped by for lunch. It was too cold to sit outside. There were only four other people in the dining room at one table so we were able to sit a good distance from them. Hand sanitizer bottles were on each table....All of the staff wore masks and so did the customers. I had the crabmelt sandwich ("Lump crabcake, fresh herbs, grilled buttered rye, monterey jack cheese") which was good but it seemed to be just backfin, not lump meat. It wasn’t a thick crabcake. I ordered the coleslaw as my side (too sweet for my taste). DH had the fried platter with oysters and clams, along with small side of coleslaw and fries. The fries were excellent (large portion). The seafood was well prepared and he liked the coleslaw. For the amount of the crabmelt sandwich and fried seafood, we felt the prices a little on the high side. Service by Tristan was courteous. We would like to return here, as there are other items on the menu we’d like to try out. Seeing other food photos, some look to be very good portions.More

BEST meal I’ve had in a long time! Had the small plate special of glazed pork belly with grits and it exceeded expectations. The crispy flounder with tangy collards and rice was also pristine. Homemade key lime pie was also a hit. Good cocktails also!...All in all, this restaurant has no weaknesses! Coming back next time I’m in the area!More

We stopped in for a quick drink and really enjoyed the place. We had other dinner plans, so we didn't eat, but what we saw, it looked good! Staff was very friendly and the place was nice..

‘Stumbled’ upon this restaurant because I’d put money in a parking meter and had an hour to grab a bite. Ordered fish and shrimp from the menu and it was absolutely amazing!!! It was hot, fresh, and well seasoned. I would strongly recommend this restaurant...to others.More

We dined inside and tables were spaced appropriately. Service was wonderful; food was spectacular. The eggplant parmesan riff with shrimp was off the charts. The shrimp were cooked to order; very tender and lightly laced with a butter cream sauce. The eggplant was also made...to order; very thin, lightly breaded slices that were delicately sauced yet retained perfect crispness. The sweet potato crusted flounder was good but both it and the accompanying rice pilaf could have used a bit more seasoningMore

Had an amazing sunset dinner with friends on the patio last night. Tuna Tartare, Benne shrimp, & seacuterie tray for apps, Grouper Linda (for 4 of us), Low Country Seafood mac & cheese, and Makers Mark Salad were all fantastic. The sunset view and service...were amazing. Great place for lunch,, dinner, or just a sunset cocktail on the patio (K9 friendly). Don't skip this one if you're anywhere close.More

Terrible service. Teenage male waiter was more interested in hanging out in the kitchen than taking care of his customers and the place was mostly empty. So no excuse for poor service. Teensy portions for price. We ordered the choose two combo and all we...got was a huge plate of fries 6 teeny shrimp and one small piece of fish. Will not eat here again! So sad to write such a bad review but it’s the truth.More
