Southern style diner focusing on mainly seafood. Mostly fried. Excellent smoked mullet dip. One of the best I have had. Oysters fried correctly which is not always the case. No alcohol served, most likely due to the owners religious beliefs. They really love Jesus as...More

Can’t understand why the good reviews for this restaurant. We stopped for lunch. Had two dozen oysters, two sandwiches and two teas. The bill was $70.00 dollars. Pricey for lunch. If the quality of food was better I probably wouldn’t have complained. I had the...More
