This place packed on Labor Day Weekend. Somehow, the kitchen managed to keep up, with both reasonable speed and high quality. Very friendly wait staff. The owner came around and instead of the usual "everything fine?" without stopping, actually stopped for a very interesting chat....Seems to be very popular with locals and boat people as well as visitors.More

Waited an hour and a half for mediocre food! Asked for bill for our appetizer and drinks when our food magically appeared. Ignored by everyone except our waitress (who was running all over the place) until our food showed up. Then everyone including the managers...were up our butts. “Do you have everything you need? What can I get for you?” Won’t be going back there ever again. I”d try the restaurant up the road on the left before you reach this place, no matter what. Didn’t discount or even offer a free dessert, maybe. Really poor service and people skills.More

My hubby and I had the delicious Fisherman’s Platter and I brought home leftovers. My son-in-law had Oysters and enjoyed them. One Grandson had steak and loved it. The other one had Chicken. My daughter had Lobster stuffed with Crabmeat and said it was delicious!

I had lunch with friends one Sunday after Church. I previously reviewed this restaurant unfavorably. I will have to say we all had very good meals. The restaurant is under new management. They seem to be doing better. I recommend you give it a try.

The last time I was there, they had a ramp up to the main dining room. The open porch is at ground level and I am not sure whether there is an open spot from the parking lot onto the dock and lower level or not. The parking... More
