“Best Local Seafood Joint Ever”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

We've been patrons at this great place three times in the last year or so. If we're passing through Perry on the way north or south, or even if we have to detour a ways, we always stop for lunch or dinner. The seafood is excellent. I always opt for the fried mixed platter, or just shrimp, and my wife has grilled fish. Both are consistently excellent with ample portions. They have an extensive menu and my wife doesn't do fried seafood, so she always has choices. I have raw oysters for an appetizer, always fresh and tasty, while my wife concentrates on the hushpuppies, a notable exception to her aversion for fried stuff. The hushpuppies are killer! Especially with that special guava fruit dipping sauce. They are different in texture, taste and shape from any others I've had in the past. This is a popular place with the locals as well as travelers like us. The atmosphere is perfect - with those local touches that let you know you're in for the real deal. The owner's floor show is fun. Make sure she tells you the story behind the pogo stick one-man band! She and all her staff are very friendly and efficient. Make no mistake, while the food is amazing and the atmosphere is folksy, this is a really well-run, clean place and is always busy at lunch or dinner times. Don't miss it, even if it means a detour. We never do.

“FABULOUS SEAFOOD!!!”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

I had not eaten here since the new owners had taken over but everyone said how great it was. Should have listened sooner!! Mullet was hot and fresh, shrimp had a great taste and raw oysters were fantastic!! Waitress was nice and friendly, as were the owners. Place was packed on a Sat night at 9:30. That says alot!!

Great family gathering place. Good food ( mullet,oysters,shrimp,) all fresh and cooked just right. The kids love the hushpuppy with guava jelly. But it wouldnt be complete without zodie's cotten eyed joe.
