Hands down, nothing comes close to this place. The best food, hush puppy's, fried fish in the area. The food with its sides is way more than the average person can eat in one setting. The price is reasonable and fair for the quality and amount served. You wont be disappointed.

As we walked in the door we were immediately greeted and seated! That was a nice surprise because I had read that there is often a wait. It was a Sunday evening and they weren't very busy. The waitress was very nice but a little scattered. We had three babies under three and time is of the essence. She took... More

The only reason for not going here more often is that the place is very busy! Good service, good prices, and good food equals a full house on many evenings.. good for luch or dinner!

We had good service, good food and good atmosphere. We each had something different. The fish was delish, the chicken sandwich was a hit as were the oysters. We also had the mushroom appetizer..with mixed reviews. One fantastic, one OK and one abstained. Overall a nice place to meet with friends.

Their seafood is always good. Ive eaten there a few times and have not had a Bad dish. Yes sometimes the service is alittle slow but Ive had that in all places Ive eaten.

Food ok. Great atmosphere and staff. Reasonably priced. Family oriented. Upscale fast food. Dinner better than lunch.

The food took forever to get to us and it was 4PM on A Wednesday. Waitress said we weren't her station and one of the cooks didn't show up. Do not dress up here. The women next to us were wearing SLIPPERS and flannel pj pants with hoodies. Kids running through the place screaming. We used to come here all... More

3 days ago these folks left a RACIST review. I had it removed - now they are just liars. I'm sorry for these people. Hope one day they will find Christ. God Bless you and I forgive you More

Husband and I came here on our way back from picking up his car at an off time. First of all, they serve great lunch deals until 4pm which is awesome! Second, we got the seafood platter, broiled and it was perfect amount to share. The only thing I would improve is offering the option to fry some items and... More

Thank you for the awesome review. It would be very difficult to split up a platter, some fried and some broiled. I know it sounds easy but its not. Thank you again More

I remember this being the place to go to. There are more options nearby for seafood but also its gone downhill. Our service was not that great and the food left a lot to be desired. My friends salad was large but it looked unappealing with so much lettuce and not much else. The lettuce was in huge chunks and... More

I'm sorry your visit was not what you expected. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but I felt yours was a tad bit strong. I have the BEST servers in Chesapeake and they work extremely hard to take care of our customers. So when you say that our service was not that great - I will defend my staff every... More

Til 3 or 4pm (not sure) fish lunch for 9.99 is a great meal and enough to split with another person excellent and most other of their dinners are also plentiful and enough to share think it is a2.00! Charge to share
