We have been here several times and have enjoyed it. This time we brought others to join us. As usual the food was very good. However, we were surprised how small the portions were. The combo platter is the same price for lunch and dinner...More

I don’t remember them being on the menu when we were there but soft shell also need to be in season. Typically in the South that runs from about mid April to September.
