Me and a few co-workers at here the last night in town. They have everything seafood from oysters, alligator, clams, crabs, etc. Everyone enjoyed what they got. The service was friendly and we didn't have any problems.

One of the co-workers had eaten there almost every night and kept going back he liked it so much.

We come here at least a couple of times each month for either one of the sandwiches or the fried seafood baskets. One of the few places we've come across that fry seafood (oysters, shrimp, fish) properly - nicely seasoned, not over-or under-cooked, and never greasy! Good selection of beer and we also enjoy the raw bar.

This should be a tourist spot but you will have to fight with (us) locals to get a booth. A wide menu for the size of the place and now with (limited) outdoor seating. A seafood basket here with fresh cut french fries runs aboiut $11.00. Friendly, fast service. Only downside here is that the Ceasar Salad needs to be enlarged for the price. Probably the only place in the area where you will find a live lobster tank.

Tjhe hot crab dip was out of this world! We had the Maryland Steamer platter, the Sea Treasure, the Fisherman's Catch, and the garlic mussels( there was 4 of us!) The Buck Shot Amber was a perfect compliment to it all! Would do again!

Way over cooked burgers and worst oyster rockerfella -cold,bland oysters w/spinach-no bread crumbs,no bacon. Hard to believe they serve the fries to customers...DRY/stale over cooked major THIN fries...reminds me of the canned potatoe shoe string I ate as a child.
New Bern has many restaurants MUCH better than this place...on the same street even.
