Great lump crab cake, salad, and baked potato all delicious. My Friend ordered the buffalo wings and they looked like something from a magazine. Food and service was awesome! I would visit this location again.

We did carry out. Always heard their wings were good, but, they are fantastic. Got both the hot and the BBQ.

Service is average. Wings are either very hot or not warm at all when they come out. Drinks are a little strong.
