I got the chicken fried chicken and it was delicious others in my group got some seafood and everyone who got the grits thoroughly enjoyed it. The average price for an entree was 10-12 if I remember correctly. It's in a great area downtown.

The food is consistently average. However, the salad was definitely not fresh. The lettuce was watery with browning leaves with no taste. Stay away from salads and order the main dishes and sides.

Old fashion service with old fashion food. Don't go here expecting the latest trendy food, but the food is very good. You get your money's worth. We all had something totally different and we were all happy.

The crab cakes are excellent. Serviçe was friendly. Onion rings huge. She crab soup tasty. We’d return for sure.

Nice people old school low country food Decent service. Crab soup was great. Crab cakes (that they are known for) I’ve had better. The chicken fried chicken was good. Coleslaw was a hit. Overall didn’t live up to the hype but also fairly reasonably priced....More

Arrived around 3 on a Sunday afternoon. Moderately busy but we were seated promptly in a booth. Service was prompt & friendly, ala Megan. The menu was straightforward. I hate it when the menu is a mini novel! Coconut shrimp to start, light and crispy!...More

I don't believe they take reservations. Just get your name on the list and enjoy shopping at the shops at the pier while you wait!
