They sell baskets with different varietys of fried seafood. Clams,shrimp,oysters etc. Everything was good. Service wasnt great. Jalapeno pepper appetizer was very very spicy. Usually when cooked they are not that hot. Still good.

“Good Seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

If you're only interested in seafood, consider stopping here.
The menu of this large establishment is (not surprisingly) almost all seafood, and largely fried, except for raw oysters.
The fried crab claws were very good and came in huge portions (the 1/2 lb will easily feed 4 or 5 people). The oysters and popcorn shrimp were also very good.
The service was a little off but no dealbreaker.
Recommended.

“We visited 3 times durning our stay!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

I would have loved to give this restaurant 5 stars across the board... But each time the service was a little off. The best orysters hands down! Cold, fresh,mild and delicious! Also fantastic hush puppies and coconut shrimp! This place has no ocean view and no frills.. But the food a price can't be beat... A bit of feed back to the owner.... Making all of your guest feel welcome would have been nice, each visit it seemed like no one wanted to wait on us.

“Good Stuff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

Ordered the ayce steamed shrimp. Glad I did, came with shrimp slaw, new potatoes, corn/cob and I had iced tea. Staff was helpful and kept up with my order. Everything was cooked great, the shrimp was a very good size and not tough or rubbery. I gave compliments to the chef. Outside seating area in front had misting fans to keep folks cool.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Great food at a good price. Place is pretty small, but worth the wait. We had the all you can eat popcorn shrimp. It was really good, slaw was good also.
