Ed McIntire has breathed new life into an old favorite. The best fried oysters in town have returned and all is well at an old standby that had fallen on bad times. Can't miss.

Raw oysters are still the best in the city. They fry their seafood in a light cornmeal batter and their gumbo has a lighter rue than is typical, but it all tastes very good. Met the owner, Mr. Chris, and he expained how they've been...More

Our service was good. However, my husband and I, both, ordered fried shrimp. It came with only one side...so we ordered fries. The plate...food....looked unappetizing...all the same color...like it had been dumped on the plate. The shrimp were butterflied...small, round, flat pieces of shrimp....cornmeal coating...blah...More
