Yes it's a chain but it's very entertaining and the food is good. Fried shrimp is great with corn on the cob. Wife orders the boiled shrimp. Grandchildren call it the "THE SHARK HOUSE". Just a few steps away from the Four Points Beachfront hotel.

Large party. Food was good for a chain restaurant. We were able to get in and out within an hour. If in a hurry eat here if not try one of the local seafood restaurants.

While we had to wait a while in the absence of reservations, the staff was very strange accommodating. Server was very attentive even though they were very busy. Kids enjoyed the impromptu entertainment. Will definitely return!!!
