Our visit was much better than our last one. Better wait staff (Abigail) and a feeling of welcome. New menu and several really good item specialties in particular, the crab cake green tomato and the bacon wrapped shrimp!!!

Have dined here several times and have had good meals every time. This place isn't fancy, but the food is dependably good and it has a great view of the bay. Well worth the stop.
