Quite a cool place, really, if all you do is walk in and look around. There's dollar bills that people have drawn on or written on stapled all around, and they even had the Packers Bears game on, which we couldn't get at the condo. The first time we we went, I got the seafood platter, shrimp and flounder. Fry it, and that's all I recommend for this whole restaurant. I'm told to not even try a cocktail unless you like seven dollar water. The second time, I got shrimp and grits. Yikes. It comes with brown gravy. If any of y'all know anything about shrimp and grits, you most likely know that brown gravy doesn't go on this dish. Ugh. Do something else, but unless you like fried shrimp and flounder, don't even try.

Food was ok, but that is the type of place it is. People write messages on dollar bills and staple them all over the restaurant. The owners take them down each year and donate them to some charity....pretty cool to see where people are from and that the money goes to a good cause.

We stopped one day for lunch on our way to Fripp Island. Atmosphere is like a fish house in the south with dollar bills stapled to the walls.
Service and staff were great and food was hot and quick and good. Would definitely make this a stop if we go by here again.

A relaxed spot with good comfort food. This is the place to go for seafood and great views. The service is friendly and the menu has good variety. My sife and I make it a point to go when we are in the area.
