Literally holes in wall but amazing seafood. Everyone enjoyed their lunch meals. Clam chowder and hush puppies. Crab cake and rockfish. Slow service but matches pace of the watermen town.

Because of the positive reviews I saw, we decided to take relatives to Courtney's for a seafood fix. I've been in plenty of hole-in-the-walls - I prefer them - but Courtney's was just dim and dingy. The place wasn't half full, but we waited about...More
