Had steamed shrimp, oysters on half shell, slaw and sweet tea. Food was delicious, and service was fast. Will definitely go back and recommend it to anyone in the area.

“Great seafood at a great price”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We found the perfect quick, casual, inexpensive, southern-style restaurant while visiting Mobile's Tillman Corner area. The exterior of the restaurant is pretty unassuming; looks like a former fast-food joint. A friendly hostess/waitress greeted and seated us. The menu is not huge but it has a good selection. My wife tried the Oyster Po-boy and I the Crawfish Platter. Both of us loved our meals. We shared some and found they were both well-prepared and delicious. The prices were very good overall. The portions were large but the bill wasn't. We will definitely visit here again.

“Surprisingly Delicious!”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Among the sea of fast food sits this gem. Do yourself a favor and try their buffalo shrimp, it totally puts Hooters to shame. In fact, I may never eat the Hooters shrimp again.

This place also has really great raw oysters and a huge menu of grilled, blackened, and fried seafood. We also had hush puppies, new potatoes, and corn on the cob - all delicious.

They serve beer as well (including Yuengling)

Highly recommend!

“Pleasant meal”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

This was the first meal in Mobile after a long drive in. I stopped here because it was close to the hotel. But now that I know about this place, next time I'll be sure to stop in and eat again. I had the blackened catfish which was very good and was served quickly.
