I've eaten here many times during my visits to Brunswick. Never had a bad meal or bad experience. They have a large salad bar with soups. Fried shrimp and seafood platter are my 2 favorite meals.

Seafood...clams strips, fried oysters, fried scallops, flounder filet was great. Very large salad bar with tasty seafood chowder. Cheddar biscuits were stale, however. Atmosphere is old steakhouse look with a dismal parking lot.More
