What a joke.. gumbo horrible.. oysters on half shell practically inedible, served with a cocktail sauce like you would get at a fast food joint.. shrimp cocktail also bad.. small in size and quantity.. embarrassing for a Bluffton restaurant..

After that everything went down hill. The fresh grouper which I question whether or not it was actually fresh catch was cooked beyond well done. The sides (macaroni and cheese) tasted like it can out of a box, the cheese grits were hard and cold,...the collards were bland and the She Crab soup was a thick cold mess.More

Bland, bland, bland. She Crab soup was thick and flavorless. Every item in the low boil was plain, like no seasoning at all was used. We were greeted cheerfully, but our server seemed disinterested in her tasks. We had high hopes, too.

Excellent service and food. Exceeded our expectations. The quantity and quality of the good was exceptional. We ordered the seafood platter of steamed oysters, mussels, and shrimp and the platter of cod, shrimp and oysters with mashed red potatoes and collard greens. All excellent!

Fresh local seafood, good price, and great service. Owned locally, convenient location. Live here and this is my favorite.

Last night our party of 7 had a great meal! The food and service was fantastic. We had so much fun eating a bucket of steamed oysters. The steamed shrimp, salad, gumbo, and she crab soup was great, too! Everything was fresh and cooked perfectly....If you are looking for fresh seafood, this is the place to eat!More

The food is amazing and the service is exceptional. We had flounder. The staff is quite knowledgeable about oyster farming. The banana pudding dessert is a must!

Looking for another "go-to" for fresh local seafood and this restaurant did not disappoint. Great service, Great food. It is now firmly on the rotation of seafood places to get to when I am in the area.

I’m hard-pressed to find something positive to say, other than our waitress, who was kind and accommodating. I ordered the fried shrimp basket and it was very evident that the shrimp had not been cleaned as there was dirt veins on each shrimp. The manager/owner...told us “that’s just the way they come in and it won’t hurt you”. My sister’s fish sandwich, which was supposed to be flounder, did not taste fresh and had a musty flavor.More
