Excellent seafood meal! A little on the pricey side but well worth it, had plenty to chose from and had other options on the menu for non-seafood. Highly recommend!

Went with wife and three other couples. Everyone was delighted with the superior quality of seafood and the portions were huge! My trio platter had large fried shrimp, fried oysters and fried flounder. All were cooked to perfection! A "must stop" visit on Folly Beach!
