“Great takeout spot!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

It was a beautiful evening and there was live music on main street, so we wanted some picnic-style food. We called ahead and ordered a mix and match of fish and steamed shrimp. The place is also a fresh seafood market, FYI. A few minutes after arriving, our order was ready. At $17, the mix and match was the most expensive platter but was enough food for two, with dessert coming later. The fish wasn't over-battered and the shrimp were perfectly steamed and lightly seasoned, which I like. The hush puppies were REALLY good! To top it off, we also got some cut melon (good) corn (OK) and a side salad (slightly wilted but OK). Considering this would've been less than the price to feed one at most sit down restaurants, I thought it was a good value. The trolley stops close by if you don't drive or have a bike.

“Steamed crabs were great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

The price on the crabs was a little higher than a few others on the island, but their trip advisor rating prompted us to give them a try! The crabs were cooked well, and the meat pulled out cleanly. They could have used more seasoning for my taste. Many I pulled out were plain. We also got shrimp which was good, but overpriced compared to other places you can get it on the island. We would get crabs from here again.

“Good sea food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

Carry-out only. The food is very good and a great value. You can get it cooked or get it uncooked and take home to cook. We tried other sea food places on the island and by far this was the best and best value.

I wanted to get some oysters to roast on the grill while at a party, we went there and got a couple of bags and let me tell you... these oysters were very fresh, priced accordingly and had such a good taste
