For a restaurant that is not located on the shore this one has some of the best sea food I have ever eaten. The portion are big and everything is cooked well.

The hamburger steak is OK. The grilled onions are greasy and the onion rings are frozen. Not the best meal I have eaten here but the staff is always excellent.

Good Service, awesome hush puppies, fish was very good, pricing was very fair. Desserts looked great, but way too much food for dessert.

We stopped looking for something a little healthier. We found it. Fresh fish and veggies. Yum. The salad is basic and the hushpuppies are quite tasty. So fast, fresh, friendly staff. Like I said. What’s not to love. Will eat here again.

The seafood was very good with a great variety! The only reason I did not rate excellent is because I was looking for a restaurant with a bar to sit at and this restaurant did not have one. Other than that the food and service...More

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.
