New to Savanah; first time here. Ordered the Fried fish (flounder) meal with cold slaw and hushpuppies. Fish was fresh and delicious. Sides were also excellent. Place is VERY casual and the food takes a while as everything is made fresh.

Had a delicious lunch on our last day in Savannah. Boiled shrimp, hushpuppys and coleslaw and their famous crab chowder. Wish we could have brought some of that chowder home.

This unassuming little restaurant served the most delicious sandwiches; we had crab cake sandwich, shrimp po'boy, fries, coleslaw and scrumptious crab soup, and all were amazing! Our server was darling and made us feel right at home. We were so glad that we stopped by!

Really friendly staff. Love the casual setting. The crab soup was good but my main dish steamed shrimp was rather tasteless. Maybe I was unlucky :-(

We went for lunch and were not disappointed. The location is a bit unusual as it is in an old repurposed house. The location is next to the store and is a local favorite. The fried shrimp taco was my wife's choice and I had...More

I am unsure whether pets are welcome. You may want to give them a call.
