Stopped by after trip to Bluffton Farmers Market. Food was good prices were great. Try the crab claw appetizer (if available.) Go early as this is a small place and waits get very long.

I was planning on a really good, fresh seafood meal, but was much surprised! The fish that I ordered was definitely NOT fresh--think frozen. The salad was small in portion size, and the lettuce wilted. The waiters were slow, and not attentive. The atmosphere was noisy and unpleasant. There are a number of good seafood restaurants in this area. This... More

Great food. The menu is not extensive but the food is really good. They do offer carryout and have a kids menu.

This was our second visit. Giving it another try. The atmosphere is enhanced by the unique painting of seafood and sites around the May River. The oysters were the only thing above par. Cold and Crisp as they should be. The Blue Cheese salad dressing served in very small side cup as very mayonnaise. The broiled Mahi Mahi was over... More

They are good for so many reasons but the one that stands out for me is the fried shrimp. The Toomer family owns their own boat and fishes and brings you the freshest seafood to the market and dining experience. We had the opportunity to visit their boat "Daddy's Girls" at a festival and it was really cool to hear... More

We were visting someone in the area and they wanted to try the food. It was all great and the staff were friendly and gave us great service. We will definitely come back if we visit again. It was about an hour from our motel but worth the drive. We did see all kinds of shops and we need to... More

All the food was tasty and reasonably priced. Of special note, the spinach salad was very good, and the shrimp cocktail was fresh and firm. In addition, the she crab soup was delicious and full of crab meat. HOWEVER, whoever picked the crab meat, missed a lot of small and medium size shell pieces. When pointed out to the waitress,...

I ate here in June with some friends and family members. We were seated pretty quickly (10-15 minute wait). The server took our drink order and the drinks took a longer than normal time to come out (we just ordered waters). We then put it our order - nothing crazy just basically fried seafood, baked potatoes, slaw. The food took... More

Visited this restaurant today for lunch. Ummm...not so great. We were seated pretty much right away, but then it took FOREVER for the waitress to come and take our order. One we ordered, it took FOREVER to get our food! Then it took forever to get the check. Once they realized we were waiting so long, the waitress finally came... More
