What a dive! This place reminded me of a haunted house, where you're running like hell scared from it, but also realizing there were amusing aspects.
We went on Friday & easily got a table just before 6. The place filled up with mostly elderly folks (8 of 12? tables) very quickly after that. You don't starve to death waiting; you are served fries & hush puppies. I don't normally like hush puppies, but liked these. Fries probably sat in the freezer a bit too long prior to cooking.
Filthy joint, would hate to see what the kitchen looked like. At the entrance, it looked like the thin carpet hadn't been vacuumed in months. The bathroom (just look for the neon sign) looked like one from a dingy truck stop. The toilet seat had "wood grain" laminate that had peeled up, and the sink and floors had been filthy, obviously for months. One of the amusing parts: the decor. Wow, talk about a time warp! Art on the wall was fresh from the late 80's to 90's with the skinny metal frames & cheap poster prints. I think the fact that this place is so unpretentious and seems to 'not be trying' to appeal to customers is also amusing.
For an appetizer we had the 'crab chips', which was good. We had the scallops Hampton (rich & tasty), sauteed blue crab (portion is very small), & an extra side of crab cake (not too good, more cake than crab, can get better crab cake at bull & bones or river co). I think almost everything had the same bay seasoning in it.
For extra fun, we had a near-death experience at our table. Who puts peanuts in cole slaw?! And who would do this and not indicate it on the menu at least. Our waitress apologized that she usually tells customers there's peanuts in the cole slaw, but forgot this time. She happily replace the cole slaw with some ultra soft honey-glazed carrots.
One star for the experience. Very nice & attentive waitstaff, which ups it to 2. Our glasses were always filled. The prices are a bit high for the environment provided.
