“Fresh food and great menu options”
Reviewed May 19, 2012

We have visited many times, the menu is extensive, not only is the seafood fresh and prepared to order, the salads are huge. The Casear salad with oysters was wonderful. Great carry out with a nice variety of cheese, bread, dips, prepared dishes and many sides. If you are just getting into town and want a quick take out with healthier fresh choices, it's the best place to stop on Coastal Highway! Eat in or carry out!

Fresh Seafood, Casual Dining, Great Service.

Both of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal.and at 10.95 it was affordable.

“Fish Find!”
Reviewed May 19, 2012

Stopped here for lunch the other day. Great place to satisfy your hunger for Seafood or anything your lunch choices are. Nice Raw bar with your choice of fresh shucked oysters, clams and huge shrimp. Very friendly staff and bartender. Husband had Oysters that were fresh and sweet, steamed clams were perfect. Shrimp salad was fresh and delicious. Will be back again and again.

“Good seafood for a good price.”
Reviewed May 8, 2012

Went for a casual dinner based on the tripadvisor review. This place is pretty big. Very family orientated. Most people are in shorts, t-shirts, flip flops. They had a few local beers like Dogfish and Evolution. I had a half dozen oysters to start and they were very good. Then I had grilled rockfish with their mashers which are good mashed potatoes with herbs and creamed spinach. My girlfriend had the 1.5 lb lobster which she loved. We were looking for a place with good seafood and not fancy and this was it. Overall, we were both satisfied and with tip the bill was under $100.
