We read the rave reviews and made the trip to Tappahannock with high expectations. It is a little like eating in a shed with plywood on the walls and ceiling and a fake fireplace in the corner. A gigantic white board lists the daily specials. We ordered the seafood baskets ($9-$10). The oysters and scallops were good, not great, but good. The potato salad and cole slaw are made in house and are good. In fact, they are so much like homemade that I found myself a little bit disappointed that they weren't better than something I could make myself. Hush puppies have too much onion in them for my liking.
At our waitress's recommendation, we had a huge slice of Heath Bar cake ($4.99) she had made this morning. It was excellent! Moist chocolate cake with chocolate chips and bits of Heath Bar with a chocolate cream cheese icing topped with crushed Heath Bars. The cake was the highlight of the meal and enough to make me go back and try a burger and another piece of cake.
