The shrimp burger is as good as promised... have it solo or with their selection of sides. Other seafood baskets and non-seafood choices available. They cook it up fresh while you wait. Stay and eat it there or take it to go.

Local food, locally owned and operated with lots of local charm and hospitality- what more could you ask for! Truly a special place with the freshest of seafood. A road side eatery with seating outside or on a screened porch.

Over-rated. Not the place once recommended by Pat Conroy. I decided to give it a second try after it didn't meet expectation the first time. The shrimp burger was a joke. Won't go back.

When the shrimp you're eating is brought in on the shrimp boats right across the street, you're definitely in the right place! This is some of the best fried seafood you will eat in the area.
