We visited for dinner and found easy access into the diningroom for my elderly grandmother. The waitress was fantastic. The food was equally yummy, especially the bite sized hushpuppies they give you when you sit down!

Try the tuna here, it's delicious. Always super nice staff and good service! Great place to visit when the weather is clear to sit outside by the water.

Beautiful location and good food! Oysters were excellent, but the fish tacos were average. Great place to enjoy the water and have a bite!
