We had a really good meal here. My chicken fried steak was tasty, my wife’s shrimp were fresh and crisp, but the pies were special. Their chocolate meringue pie was off the chart. If you are in Port Lavaca eat here.

Friendly place; we were greeted and seated by the owner. Good basic food, well prepared. Save room for dessert, or take some home! There must have been about a dozen kinds of pie, cheesecake, cake and "ding dongs" (ya gotta ask about these!)
