We stopped here for dinner yesterday evening and really enjoyed it! The food was great. We had shrimp tacos and the Rusty bucket, it was all very good and fresh and the shrimp are huge. We also had spinach dip and chips for an appetizer...More

The food was delicious. The fried green tomatoes with bacon Jam were outstanding. The place had a quaint atmosphere and excellent food.

3 o'clock on a Sunday is never a good idea to go eat at this restaurant. Although I am a fan of Puckett's, this boathouse is not adding up! It took forever to get our order taken and there were not very many people inside.....More

I would've given three stars. But looking at all the other reviews that say the same thing I took a star away because they haven't done anything to improve. Food was just OK servers were not that great but the atmosphere was quaint. Please read...More
