Best pizza hands down and the seafood is FRESH! Great staff and friendly service. Everything is amazing about this place except the decor. Don't be fooled by the appearance. It is below standard, but the food makes up for it. A local favorite.

If you don't mind concrete block and talking to the people at the next table, this is the best fried shrimp anywhere. This is where the working men and the family after church eats. It's worth jumping off of 95 for a peaceful break and some great food.

This place is off I-95, east of the Darien exit on US 17 just north of Brunswick. DO NOT let the one-storey, cinderblock construction of this eatery dissuade you! Like many other Southern restaurants, you can judge this one by the number of cars in the parking lot and the number of folks lined up out the door. Friday nights are really busy. Early arrivals will be rewarded with fast seating. While there are a number of items on the menu, we are particularly fond of the fried shrimp and the fried oysters; I've not had better any where in Georgia. There are seafood platters and steaks available as well as a seafood buffet with most menu items and many sides. My son, who claimed not to be hungry, went back three times and still had room for dessert! Servers are young and often harried, but they are good-hearted and do a good job in a busy shop.

Just a "hole in the wall" type of place with mismatched tables & chairs (you may even have to share your table with others) but the food & prices are worth it! The FRESHEST seafood & BIGGEST steaks cooked perfectly, HUGE subs under $5 and the bestest sweet tea in a huge glass! The servings ae big, and food is served quick! Huge seafoodbuffet every fri & sat with/without crab leggs, and "southern food" buffets lunch and dinner during the week. Closed after 3 on sunday! They serve beer & wine, but no alcohol. I LOVE this place, and you will too!

Took a chance here driving back to Atlanta from GA coast. Stopped in about 7pm on a Weds night. Place was busy but we were seated and served very quickly. This place is a dive but the shrimp were excellent. It's not a place to go for anything fancy but if you want fresh fried shrimp then this is the place to be. My 12 year old and I split the shrimp dinner and we could not begin to finish it. There were probably 30 or more shrimp on that plate for $16.
