Always good, great service and priced about the same as the other restaurants on the marshwalk. I like the shrimp basket and burgers for lunch with a cold beer. Outdoor seating on those nice days and a nice bar area. We haven't been for dinner but will soon.

We arrived during a very busy period, a number of patrons waiting for seating. Yet, in the normal hubbub, it did not feel stressed. Folks were friendly and patient with each other, accommodating, etc. -- the patrons! The staff were good, of course, but naturally focussed on serving their many customers. A bustling, dynamic business -- a good sign; let's... More

We arrived and took a table outside on the deck by the water and when we ordered thinking it was happy hour the waiter then told us no - happy hour was... More

My husband and I had lunch and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. Sarah (our waitress)was friendly and informative. When the food arrived and we were enjoying that when I realized how relaxed I felt. Then I noticed the table top, it was a brightly painted cartoon. Then I noticed all the table tops were brightly painted... More

Had a nice dinner and listened to very good live music. I had grilled Mahi and wife had grilled/broiled scallops and shrimp. All was very good. Hushpuppies served as breadbasket when seated -- very good (don't eat them all or you will be full). Good selection of draft beer. Decent wine choices. Service was quick and efficient. Stayed for a... More
