The food here is all fried. If you are looking for something with a little ambience, you should go elsewhere. This is not a fancy place - going here in your bathing suit or workout clothing would be just fine. On Sundays, they do not serve alcohol, so if you like a cold beer with your fried shrimp, you should... More

Good food ordered at the counter and brought to your table. All fried and they take cash only. Just right for us. The oysters and scallops were awesome. We enjoyed it!

What a great dinner. We called and asked if they were serving shark tonight. They said sure how many orders do you want? We said 8 and we will be there around 6. We felt pretty special. Shark just for us. OMG it was good. Had plenty of leftovers for lunch tomorrow. We r down about 4 times a year... More

The menu is limited but is does offer some items for kids. The food was pricey for the quality. But, the service as good.

My food was not fresh, but FROZEN. This place is not worth it. The best part of our meals were the canned green beans. This is the first review I have ever written on Trip Advisor; I am a local and felt compelled to let all know. Save your money....yuck!!

The fried shrimp is the best I have tried on Folly Beach. My husband had the fried flounder and it was light, and flaky, cooked to perfection! The hush puppies had just a hint of sweetness that made them delicious! Love sitting out on the screened in deck! We will be back again to dine at this outstanding restaurant!!

We were looking for a good local seafood place. I read the reviews from here & thought maybe we found a gem. I like fried food especially seafood, but it just wasn't that good & definitely not worth the price ($97 for 3 people). You are required to pay with cash, and they have an ATM at the door if...

The service got me first; I should have left when the cashier wouldn't stop filing her nails when we ordered. I felt like my family was intruding on her time. "Cash Only", she said. Then, the most important part....... the food all tasted the same. The clams, scallops, chicken, and whiting all tasted the same, and the fries were just... More

If you don't mind the rough feel to the place, like you are on a fishing boat go ahead! This is a great atmosphere for you. That is one thing that I do like that your food match the atmosphere of the place. You aren't too far from the ocean, most food is freshly caught, so I was told, except... More

We found this restaurant about 3 years ago while traveling over to Folly Beach. We noticed it and were unable to stop at the time, so we went back and were able to stop in and eat. This is a small place with limited seating and looked a little rundown. But, that old saying that we know as "don't judge... More
