Went looking for seafood and found this great Southern seafood! Crabcakes were amazing! Very generous portions for sides. Diva meal was more than I could eat. Everything was cooked fresh & served hot. Tartar sauce was obviously homemade. Highly recommend.

A tiny place with large portions. Certainly not a bad place. The owner lady is loud, not rude, the line is fine but there is a difference. I would come back, as my wife loved her shrimp po'boy.
