Dinned here for lunch for the first time with a co-worker. Was skeptical about trying this restaurant because the store front was not very appealing. But I gave it a shot and was pleasantly surprised. The inside of the restaurant is nice, yet quaint. The staff are super friendly and fun-loving and the food was delicious. The blackened salmon wrap with sweet potato fries is a must try. Will definitely go back!

Took my daughter here for crab. Opted for the mixed bucket with crab legs, shrimp, oysters, mussels, and clams. Food was good. I am by no means a expert, but it seemed a bit over steamed, shells were wide open and contents were a somewhat rubbery. Not enough to send it back though. Would go again.

This gem of a restaurant doesn't look like much from the street view. We were not disappointed with the food!

Late lunch for us consisted of a seafood quesadilla and a black and blue burger. Our sides were the beer battered fries and okra. The fries are delicious, but a bit too greasy. The seafood quesadilla had small shrimp and cut up scallops, cheddar cheese and pico on it. It was more than I could finish. The burgers are good too-fresh meat and large.Our server was very sweet and did her job well.
