This is a great little place for average food, nothing special. Service (wait-staff) was prompt and friendly but the wait for food (and there was only one other table seated, employees of the place, it appeared) is overly long, about 25 minutes; this was probably due to the massive number of phoned-in take-out orders stacking up on the cook. All in all, average food, prices in line for same, nothing fancy or special about it.
Barbecue plate with fries (not on menu) - Barbecue is, of course, pot/crockpot cooked but the sauce, made in-house, and the volume of the serving make it a great value (photo shown).
Fries - The fries were served lukewarm, after a 25-minute wait, so perhaps you'll want to ask for hotter food if you visit.
Calabash Shrimp (on menu) - Shrimp breading is mushy and shrimp are popcorn-sized and fragments, not the crispy medium shrimp for which this Gullah region is famous, but there were plenty of them.
Fried Okra - it's the frozen kind, no seasoning of any kind, so you'll want a bit of salt
Coleslaw - NO seasoning whatsoever other than mayo, no ingredients other than green cabbage. No salt, no pepper, no nothing.
Dining room staff were extremely friendly, place was busy as a beehive later during our visit and apparently this place is filling a tourist-need niche here in Ocean Isle Beach. I did not try the ten-dollar Reuben (I've got to see this thing and I was tempted) but I'll probably give it a try if I visit again.
Oh, and my barbecue, fries and okra were served on three plates, Styrofoam, so don't expect anything fancy. I understand they're putting in beer and wine once they get their dishwasher water up to commercial standards and they have a small bar that appears as though it will seat about six folks, so you'll have that to look forward to soon.
