“Awesome seafood!”
Reviewed July 22, 2012 via mobile

I've never had seafood this fresh this far from the ocean! Love the shrimp and flounder. Don't let the look of the place fool you. It's great!

“Absolutely wonderful!!!!!”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

Had lunch there today for the frist time. (usually dinner but has been 2 years) It was fantastic! I had scallops and flounder. Hubby had shriimp and flounder. Special was shrimp for 6.99. It was wonderful, the flounder was fried to perfection. Hush puppies were awesome! The wait staff was friendly and came back to check on us several times and kep tthe tea glasses full! Don't let the looks fool you..... it was wonderful! Will be going back often! I even saw some familiar wait staff there from the old eejay's! Great to see you again!

“Yuck”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

Don't know why people think this is a great place to eat. The restaurant is filthy, the staff is rude and the food?????..... well, it all tastes like fried old oil. Would not waste my money on it.

“You will love this family dining”
Reviewed March 6, 2012

I eat hear for lunch or dinner. For lunch they give you resonable specials and it is always fresh. I can't get enough of the fried shrimp!
When you are at variety's you get a lot of food. I mean a lot of food. I have eaten the calamari, shrimp, steaks crab legs clam chowder scallops clams and scallops. I have never had a bad meal here.
I was nervous to try this place but the staff is friendly. The will let you know they will get you in and out quickly for lunch. Youw will always have a great meal here.
