“Great fresh fish.”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We were in the area and the clerk at the hotel told us about Posey's and that it was a great local eating place and not to judge it by its worn appearance.

We ordered the oyster and shrimp fried combo platter and it was the best I've tasted. The batter had a touch of pepper and the shellfish was cooked perfectly, very tender and moist.

The hush puppies, fries and coleslaw were also outstanding. Too bad it is so far from home otherwise I'd become a regular.

In addition, the pricing is reasonable and portion size is large.

“Great place to stop for lunch.”
Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

Great lunch value. A little $$ for dinner. The shrimp were some of the smallest in the area. But, the seasoning was good. The steam oyster were very good for only 8 bucks. The best price in the area.

“Fresh and delicious”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

This place does not look like much from the outside, but it was always busy when we went there. The food was very good, lots of seafood choices, and friendly, helpful service. We will definitely go back there on our next visit to the area.

“best fried seafood platter”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

I don't usually eat fried food but I shared the platter with a friend, it was superb, the restaurant has local character but feels a little dingy and dirty. Friendly and attentive wait staff.

“Nothing special”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

We like small local restaurants with character and good food. This one just didn't quite make it iin either catagory. Was not bad but the prices were a little on the high side for a restaurant of this style.
