The food is pretty good. Very fresh and presented properly. However, I dont find the servers to be the nicest. Could be a bad day but it was the same on my last visit.

Good food and reasonable prices. I always order the fried green tomatoes as an appetizer, they are so good.

Was seated when we walked in the door. Three tables were seated and two of them eating. We waited 10 mins and no one acknowledged us. So we left. Last time we were there we had terrible service. We thought since it had been months maybe things had changed. Apparently not. Will never go back.

We are at the one in Mcclenny, FL and enjoyed it so much while in this area we visited this location. The Galley meal for 2 is your best bet and it comes with 4 sides. A huge plate of fried oysters, shrimp, fish fillets, scallops, crab cakes, clams, hush puppies all to your delight! We have to get a... More

I visited this restaurant on a visit to Valdosta and when I tell you... I am a crabaholic that is an understatement. I ordered the 2lbs of crab and I had to call for back up. It was so much food and it was very well prepared. Not too salty and not too spicy. I had such a great visit... More

We stopped here on our way home from Florida trying to avoid a chain restaurant. I got boiled shrimp and enjoyed it; however my dad's stuffed flounder was not to his liking (too cheesy and doughy, not enough crab). While that seemed to be the only real miss food-wise, the restaurant was pretty empty, and it took a very long... More

We stopped here for lunch while traveling because of the great tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. The signature dish "Scampi Fiesta" was fantastic! We also had the stuffed mushrooms which were also very good. We will stop again for sure!

Stopped in to eat passing through town. The food was fantastic. portions very large. I had 2lbs of crab for $22.95. Can't beat that. Had one of the friendliest waitresses ever. Would highly recommend for anyone who likes seafood

According to my husband. The fish is very good, too, and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. The only complaint we had was the tartar sauce, which looked and tasted like plain mayonnaise. We got plenty of good seafood and sides to eat and really enjoyed our visit. Looking forward to coming back some Monday for all-you-can-eat crab legs!
