Great seafood with large portions. Wide variety of foods. IT's not just seafood. Full bar available. Not crowded on the off seasons. Highly recommended.

I called in advance to get the 'specials'. I called back 10 minutes later and stated I need to place a to go order. I was put on hold. After the hold I ordered the 'special' plus another order. I was put on hold again. Then the girl came back on the line and said it would 15 minutes. So... More

We were in the area in December so finding open good places was hard. There were 5 of us and each of us thought our meal was absolutely delicious. My mom said it was the best steak she had ever had. My mother-in-law got the prime rib special and it was cooked as ordered and great! We were not disappointed.

To me the menu was a little limited. I ordered the ribeye so I'd have plenty to take home to the dogs. It had good flavor, but there was a lot of fat on the steak. I should've gotten the filet. The loaded bake potato was bland and they didn't offer bread or hushpuppies. I ordered hushpuppies as part of... More

Can't go wrong here, great selection, really good a la carte salads and vegetables, and super nightly food and beer specials. Staff is nice and efficient. Lots of sports games shown in the bar area. Could live without the live music on certain nights (as really seems people come there to gather, eat and talk.) Always have local artists work... More

Wings with five different spice levels for 59 cents a piece. The price is right and the wings are great. I especially love the Barbalou sauce with a bit of a kick but won't catch your mouth on fire. Wash all this down with a 2 buck Yuengling beer, how can you beat that!?!!?

The good thing is we got right in on a slow Monday night.The menu is mostly seafood with very little else. The service was ok. I know I'm in the south but the service was slow. The food was good and and the crab dip was really good.

The price was high for the amount of food served. It was decent food but had no flavor or seasonings. Good service.

Came here while on vacation. Food overpriced. I got 5 shrimp with my dish and flounder was over battered and tasted frozen. Paid $17.99:( Waitress acted as if customers were a bother. She had way too many tables (we sat in bar area) but that's no reason to be rude & short to customers. Go somewhere else.
