We ordered blackened grouper. First, I don’t believe it was grouper, but rather an out of season substitute. My grouper was more sushi than blackened fish. Not interested in going back.

Visited here for lunch, for our bi-annual visit to the Tidewater area. We brought friends this time who enjoyed sandwiches. I dined on the stuffed flounder which was again delicious.
