The fried okra and squash casserole are out of this world. Every time you go there the restaurant is always full of customers that should let you know how great it is you always want to go there every time you go to jekyll.

Terrific dinner at an amazing price. $14.50 a plate of great fish/seafood plus two generous sides. Tip: catfish, shrimp and grits, shrimp cakes, vege souffle, sweet potato souffle, cabbage, etc. were to die for. Plus, full bottles of decent wines for $12-$17 a bottle. Unbelievable!
