Poor, slow service;most all seafood options were battered & fried--extremely greasy. Chicken tenders totally dry & tasteless. Complimentary hush puppies were good,though.

We both ate a whitefish/shrimp platter, which turned out to be more than we needed but was very well prepared. The weight staff was friendly and expedient. It was our first visit but will not be our last- GOOD!

I would say a full menu with seafood mostly but other items as well. I ordered the grilled grouper and it was very good. The hushpuppies they bring out are so good I could not stop eating them.
