This place is very busy in season but the staff handles it very well. I had the baked catfish and the portion ,2 small strips, resembled a childs portion. My wife had the Cheeseburger and said it was very good.

Come here early and with a big appetite! I had the seafood platter and my husband the fried chicken. Portions were large and food delicious. The chocolate cream puff for dessert was yummy! Our waitress, Jill was wonderful. We came at 4:30 and the place was already half full. Parking available front and back of restaurant.

My family and I heard about this place from some friends so we decided to try it out for ourselves. We were not disappointed. Seafood or down home cooking are both offered here. We will definitely be back.
