Nice clean place for lunch or dinner. Nothing fancy. Servers were helpful and friendly. Mostly FRIED foods, however, you can have grilled, baked or blackened.

Loved the fried shrimp and clam strips. Light breading and fried just right, not over done. Three people in our party had their cole slaw and loved it. The service was good and the price was right. We will return for another seafood feast.

The food is fresh and good, and Fried. I'm not sure that you can get anything except the mash potatoes that isn't fried...ever the corn. Regardless it's all very good. It's wine and beer only and the place is constantly packed. You will wait but it's worth it. They do a huge to-go business so that's an option

I always get the shrimp special. It is more than I can eat so I save some for lunch the next day. However, I never get to eat it because my son finds it and it seems to disappear! Service is very good, atmosphere is OK.

Stopped and had lunch. Grilled shrimp on a skewer with pineapple, applesauce with cinnamon and sweet potato fries. Wife had crab cakes that were lightly battered. Will definitely stop again.
