Took over an hour drive from Roswell to 227 Broad Street in downtown Rome to give this place a try and we're so glad we did. You'd never realize that you're no where near the beach once you enter this place. Great decor for what it is - a rustic beach joint. The gulf coast orders were very flavorful and $9 a dozen. That's only 75 cents each and worth every penny. I also got a 1/2 dozen Curlee's baked oysters and they were really tasty too. There's a variety of 6 different baked oysters to choose from so I know we'll be back. I ordered the clam chowder but was served the baked potato soup by mistake. I guess it's the same soup just less the clams. It was so good that I didn't have the waiter change it. I don't remember our waiter's name but he was very sweet and very very southern. Great service too.
My husband enjoyed the shrimp cocktail with 6 large shrimp as well as the crab cake appetizer. He enjoyed the two small crab cakes but they weren't a favorite of mine. We'll definitely be back.
