Had to get up and find waitress to ask about the... More

Very expensive with poor quality of food that seems to be pre cooked earlier in the day and warmed up when you order.

We stayed at the quality inn next door and had 3 meals hear. Everyone enjoyed their food from my 98yr old grandfather to my 7yr old grandson. They were also very friendly!!

If you're traveling down I-95, this is a quick stop with no waiting for hot food. The choices are varied (spaghetti to deep fried pork chops), their hush puppies come with everything and are plentiful. Prices are moderate, if a bit overblown for the quality.

We stopped by when staying in the hotel across the street. It's nice to just walk there. Overall, the restaurant met our expectations and we were satisfied and would go again if we were nearby. We had a 1lb shrimp platter and the buffalo wings (hot) and the wings were pretty decent and we liked the spicy version. The shrimp... More

First, service is really slow in mid-afternoon only one waitress and she's also taking the orders so if she was taking a fairly large to take out order from some people we had to wait for about 10 minutes so while that was going on since they were deciding. Is pretty clean but the decor is fake seashore knickknacks. Flatware... More

This restaurant was next to the Quality Inn where we stayed. They had just instituted a take out service which suited us perfectly because we do not like to leave the dogs in the room. The first night I ordered scallops. They came with two sides and hush puppies. The scallops were to die for they were so delicious. The... More

Like the series CHEERS, come on in and enjoy your favorite drink and laugh with friends. Full bar and a full menu with some yummy appetizers. What's not to love? Just off of I 95 in Petersburg Va, it's worth the stop or if you're staying overnight. . Try them!
