Great place not to far off of the highway. Food was fantastic service was stellar and there was a beautiful view. Do yourself a favor and order the shrimp and grits you will not be disappointed.

“Good Food, Nice View”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Crabby Fried Green Tomatoes were excellent. So were the fried shrimp. Service was very good. Oh, and the banana pudding is very good - nice and creamy.

“Some of the best food I have ever eaten!!”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Thank goodness we had GPS in our vehicle or we would never have found this place. Well off the beaten path but so worth the effort to find. I ordered the shrimp & grits and my husband ordered the BBQ shrimp. Both were wonderful!! The portions are very large so don’t over order. The staff was friendly and helpful and service was fast. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting true local seafood in the gulf region. I will definitely be returning!

“Great times with old friends”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

It was our anniversary and some friends took us there to eat. That was our first time to eat there. We got catfish and our friend got stuffed flounder. The food and service was great.
