Everything started out great. Loved the casual atmosphere and marshside tables and bar. The drinks and appetizers of fried okra and mussels were fine. The highlight of the visit was, I assume the owner, pointing out the beautiful painted buntings at the bird feeders near...More

In an area that's somewhat lacking in dining choices, this spot is a relief. With a wonderful view of the inlet (especially for sunsets), they offer a wide variety of local seafood (Frogmore stew, for example). Service was good and prices reasonable.

We ate with a group of people. Everyone's food was good but nothing was overly impressive, especially for the price. The peel & eat shrimp and crab cakes were the best. The seafood pasta and ribs were good but not great. We had a great...More

The crab cakes were delicious. The food presentation was beautiful. The march view was lovely. There is a dedicated parking space for Marines; the base is close by. This is a very nice touch.
