Food is very good. This is not a table service restaurant. You need to stand in line to order and pick up at completion. If you want a second beer (frozen mugs), you need to get in line again. The cocktail and tartar sauce were a little bland, but the onion rings to "die for". The coating on the fried... More

I ate here with my wife for dinner recently. We planned on going to a steakhouse but failed to make reservations and it was Saturday night, so we decided to change course and give this place a try. I'm glad we did. I had crab legs, which seemed on the pricier side for the amount I got, but I do... More

I'd have given this excellent but they forgot our order so our wait was a bit long. The interior chrome-legged tables and vinyl chairs was like I was at my granny's place. We went for dessert appetizers and recommended it to friends.

It's been awhile since I have been here but when I come I always have a good experience. If you are looking for a place that has seafood this is the place.

The frozen margaritas looked great, but we didn't have one. Anyone who rates this restaurant at much better than average did. The fried shrimp basket was fine; it came with plenty of fries. The atmosphere is interesting.

I was told about the flying fish from a local. Being from the gulf coast area I was curious to see how they cook there seafood. I ordered a red snapper grilled and a half dozen oysters. Fish was ok, not the greatest. The oysters were much smaller than I'm used to.

The food is not that great. I ordered a Lobster stew and it is kind of salty. However, it is affordable comparing to restaurants you see around. Plus, if you eat there a lot, you get a free meal. When you order, you will have a electron device, and when your food is ready, it will flash, then it is... More

Good selection of seafood. Casual place, lots of Billy Bass hanging on the walls. Had bassa lunch. Came out quick, tasted great. Self serve beverages. Good lunch for $12.
