Always fresh hot and delicious. Since its enlargement, the wait has been minimal. My favorite is the fried shrimp and scallops. My wife loves the shrimp. She would be satisfied with the six portion but the ten spot is just to hard to pass up. Go see for yourself. I garuntee you won't be disappointed

My son had a sirloin steak, medium rare. He is a meat and potatoes kind of guy. There wasn't an ounce of fat on his steak, he was able to enjoy the whole thing (he only likes lean steaks).

Ate at the bar and had a great oyster po boy. Big, plump, juicy oysters on a bun with lettuce and tomato. Bypassed the homemade tartar for a squeeze of lemon. It was heaven.

This restaurant is very good. I particularly enjoyed the flounder!, though the fish and chips were pretty good too. Nice atmosphere, clean and friendly

Great food, great service. Love the crab dip, have changed from chips to pita tips, which is too filling for an appetizer. Not cheap.

Thank Katy I
