Picturesque view, attentive friendly service and delicious main course and deserts to die for. I had the Shrimp & Grits and Deb had Mahi Mahi. Strawberry cake to top it off.

Special location makes this a dining expierience to remember. The shrimp and grits are delicious and thier signature dish. The menu is great but they don't do baked potatoes but other choices fill in nicely.

This time I had the fried Oysters, fantastic and a huge portion. Wait staff is very friendly and attentive.... More

This is our "go to restaurant" for special occasions or to entertain out of town company. The view is second to none, especially at sunset. You can go by car or by boat. Sure, sometime you have to wait but just enjoy! I have never had a bad meal and the salad dressings and desserts are made by the owner.... More

Heard great reviews so decided to try them - BAD IDEA!! Grits could have been used for softball or wallboard paste! 8 shrimp were nice size and tasty. Said andouille sausage in sauce - I'm from Louisiana and that wasn't even close! Sauce was spicey and tasteless with tons of bell pepper - burped it all night. Strawberry Margarita was... More
