Great hush puppies & sweet & spicy shrimp appetizer. Seafood platter was delicious except grits were a bit bland. Given extra scallops & oysters since crab cakes are only available Thur-Sat. Great service & generous portions.

No kidding! The seafood platter is awesome. And HUGE! I prefer fried but you can also get is grilled. I grew up on the coast of NC so have eaten plenty of seafood over the years. This place is among the best - ever! Fried to perfection with just the right amount of batter the grouper, shrimp and oysters are... More

The Grouper Fish basket was very good. Good oysters, cheese grits, and hush puppies. Service was a little slow, but food was cooked to our liking. We would go back again.

We spent 2 weeks in the Carrabelle area recently and ate here four times, twice with visiting friends. Got takeout shrimp and key lime pie on another day. The decor is underwhelming and the presentation is pretty basic but the food is very good. We had grilled shrimp, grilled grouper and fried oysters all fresh and perfectly prepared. The house...

The oysters were by far the best we have ever had, very sweet. The service was fast. We hadn't even finished our salad and our dinner had arrived. Beautiful area.

The only rerstaurant open in town, we were a bit nervous to try this restaurant as other reviews said fried food was their specialty, We saw no evidence of this. All entrees were offered as grilled, fried, or blackened. We opted for the "Fisherman's Salad" as it touted fish, scallops, and shrimp. The portion was good size and the seafood... More

Good friends recommended this place last year so we finally stopped in. Very disappointing! Service slow; we had to get up & request our drinks. Ordered grouper, but certainly didn't look or taste it. They placed the "grouper" on top of the sweet potato fries which made them soggy. The fish also had several bones. The slaw was shredded so...

We visited the restaurant today and it just wasn't anything special. First it took a long time to get service which was okay. Then it took even longer to get a menu. Once we made our decision, we were told they were our of steamed shrimp. Of course, that was just what we were there for. We then switched it... More
