“Not their biggest fan.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

I tried this restaraunt out due to a friend of mine recomending it to me. I was really excited to try it because I am a huge seafood fan. I tried the crab pasta and their were crab shells all throughout the pasta. It made it inedible. The restraunt just seems boring, old, run down and kind of uncomfortable. Just an all round awkward experience.

“Local Seafood is Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

This local place is a great find. It's out of the way and doesn't look like much on the outside (or on the inside either). The food and the service are prompt, good, and reasonable. It's much better that supporting the national chain eateries.

“Delicious food - Excellent price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

My husband and I have visited here now about 20 times over 3 years. It's the best seafood this side of Virginia - hands down. The fish is FRESH - no freezer burn like chain restaurant's fish. I've never had anything here that wasn't delicious and I would try again (today, please!!!). The atmosphere is romantic and quiet and the music (Jimmy Buffett, Nora Jones, beach music) must have been hand-picked for relaxation in a comfortable atmosphere. The nautical touches are nice - nothing fancy but nice. Our favorite!

This is just a small local restaurant, but the food is excellent. This was one of the best meals that I have had. The crab bisque is amazing!!!

“YOU MUST GO HERE!!!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2012

This place is great! If you like chain restaurants like red lobster then you won't like it here, it is far too good for your tastes. Hush puppies are the best I have ever had. Crab legs are plentiful and shrimp is delicious. Service is outstanding and very friendly. They are adding a patio outside that I cannot wait to dine on. The parking lot has beautiful butterfly bushes and if you cannot navigate the parking lot then you should not be driving. I must say this place has the best seafood in southwest VA.
