“Yummy Seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

We visited May 24, 2014 was 6 of us for an early dinner. We arrived about 4:20 pm. When we left about 5:30 or so even the outside had patrons on the patio eating.
The food was wonderful. The only comments I heard that was negative was the softshell crab was good maybe a tad on the overdone side. I had she crab soup and a scallop basket. Loved the soup and the basket was just right with just enough scallops and fries. The others had shrimp and grits which were good "If I liked grits!" just a few too many grits for someone who really doesn't like grits. The girls had shrimp plates they said were the best shrimp they had had in a long time. The waitress was timely and friendly. Very attentive.
The seafood was just yummy!!

“good, but not sure #1”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014

my wife and had dinner last week...it is clearly a local place without all the hype of the restaurants on the other side of the street in murrells......we had a soft shell crab for an appetizer which was a first for me...i would rate it fair...the grouper was cooked to my liking....light breading and flakey good...no draft beer is offered....help staff is friendly enough....

Thank you for the review, as for the soft-shell crab a lot of our customers like it but not everyone thats why we serve it as an appetizer, so that you don't get the dinner and end up not liking it, as for the draft beer, if thats what you came for you should have ask before being seated, whats better then an Ice cold bottle of beer.

“Great atmosphere small and welcoming”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2014

Compared to all the surrounding restaurants this place looked like a nice hole in the wall little dive! We were a little underdressed from playing on the beach all day to go to some of the other restaurants this was a nice pit stop to grab lunch, that I didn't feel like I had to dress up to go to. My husband loves raw oysters and was very pleased, can't complain about the food, we all went home with full bellies and our plates were all clean.
