This place has good seafood. We had flounder and shrimp and really enjoyed the food. The hush puppies are wonderful and plentiful. Can't stop eating them. The slaw was very good and the baked potato was too. The ice tea was really good as well....More

My wife and I stopped in for some fried oysters and they were the best we have found. Planning on traveling back to Havelock and look forward to the best fried oysters around!

Had the fried oysters and shrimp-very delicious & got my money's worth. Was going to order soft shell crab but it was a bit overpriced ($12 for one?). Would definitely return here.

I am not sure how this was rated so highly to be ranked one of the better restaurants in the area. There is really nothing wrong with it, and yet, it certainly wasn't outstanding. The hushpuppies were cold, and a little rubbery. If you do...More

Heard that this might be a good place to eat, guess not. This is the first time I ever had scallops that the meat inside looked like it was ground up not fibrous strings because it grew in a shell. Hmmmm For $21 .00 bucks...More
