After more than thirty years this is still well worth the visit. They serve a huge variety of fresh sea food that you can see on display as you enter.
We enjoyed an assortment of clam strips, shrimp and mahi-mahi that was served hot and cooked to perfection. The broccoli, new potatoes and dessert were equally exceptional. But the crab cakes were mediocre with more bread than crabmeat, the beans and rice, onion rings, coffee and fried oysters were not up to the level of the other items. The stars on the menu are the freshly grilled fish and the coconut shrimp. Although the service was prompt and efficient, we felt rushed and pressured to order, although the dining room was only sparsely occupied during our visit. I know they pride themselves on quick service, but that tends to deter from the relaxed atmosphere that might be more desirable and conducive to an enjoyable visit.

The atmosphere is really nice inside and out. We choose to eat outside on the porch. The server was very good, quick and seemed to know the locals. The food was good but not great. My son got the crab legs and said they were a but salty. My broiled grouper was just OK.

Ate here for lunch again recently. Food was very good as usual and the prices were good. Staff was very friendly. Had the shrimp and clams. The hush puppies are very good. I will eat here again.

Having driven by many times we finally stopped and overall glad we did. Great decor , clean, and friendly service. We had lunch so peel n eat shrimp, fried shrimp, and clam strips. The food was of good quality and our only complaint would be the breading they use is really plain with no spice of any kind. This can be mostly overcome by the cocktail sauce and hot sauce on the table but still leaves some room for getting to our taste preferences. Overall though really good quality food and the kids menu is full of choices including crab legs....now where do they get that! Lunch portions were really good also with plenty of food to fill you up for a reasonable price!

My husband and I ate here it was great he had the fish tacos, I had the Clam po boy, and we shared the clam chowder and hush puppies. Service was great. The restaurant is clean, and I loved the decorations. Portions are decent for the price.
