Good food. Great atmosphere for kids since they have a man made pond with a gator and snapping turtles... It was pretty high priced... Priced More like a river front restrauant. Good hush puppies, and crab legs. Paper plates did not bother me at all. Peach cobbler was good!

If the locals eat there its gotta be good. Recommended by a resident of Savannah, best seafood we had the entire trip. If you are in Savannah, make sure you eat here.

have no idea what that might mean as I know nothing about French but think I just said something about Super Food of the day? Great!! 15 years ago we discovered this place on a trip to Florida. Not returning to florida for 8 to 10 years we had forgotten where it was. Friends of ours came to visit us when we were vacationing in Floirda years later and commented about this super place they stopped for dinner where you throw the shcks into the whole in the center of the table. We were over joyed that they found it and for the last three trips to Florida and back in two years tried to get there when it was opened 2 to 9 and we were always to early to stop since we headed for New York. This time on the way to Florida we made it a plan to stop at the exit (94 Savannah Ga on Rt 95 if your looking) My wife and I split a HUGE platter filled with boiled shrimp 6 oysters a pound of crab legs huge amount of crawfish and our sides of grits and hushpuppies. A pitcher of beer and the bill was around $45. Our Waitress KAYLEE is the best and was very helpful in choice of food and even opening help. 1 oyster just would not open and even the kitchen guys could not do it.... a fresh one was brought right out. we difinately will try to plan our trips back and forth to be able to stop here each time the food was EXCELLENT! and ask for KAYLEE she is a sweetheart! THANKS KAYLEE if you ever see this

We have been there many time over the years. The seafood is fresh and the service was great. I had the low country boil and my wife had the bucket of oysters. The hole in the table is a big help to keep the table clean as you shuck. A bit pricey but worth it. We will be back again.
