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.

I do have to say that there was a bit of an wait but honestly the food was worth it. The wait gave me and my wife time to relax and talk about our days which was actually very nice. Sometimes when it takes the kitchen a while for food it turns out amazing!

Service was fine but the steaks were so tough we could barely chew them and the stuffed flounder was bland. We've eaten here before and it was okay but not great. Probably won't return.

For the price, the quality of the food was a disappointment. For $11, I got the "fish and chips", which is hardly a fish and chips dinner. It was 3 small (emphasize small) pieces of flounder and the expected plate of fries, yet the fries tasted like they were a few days old. For $11 you would expect a little... More

Food was ok. The staff could've cared less about the guests. We expected a lot more for the price we paid. Won't be visiting again.

This is a nice place to dine, I only wish they were open for lunch. The food is great and the service is great, it is also very clean. There is a full bar.

Made a reservation for our group of 6 online (very easy) and when we arrived we were immediately seated to a table that was all set for us (including the high chairs). From the outside of an old strip mall I was expecting a bit of a run down, dive but no, the inside was very clean, nice and well... More

Was very concerned when we we were seated as there were only two other tables with patrons, but within 10-15 minutes, the place filled up. Loved the hushpuppies appetizer although a little more butter would have been nice. Portions appeared to be more than enough for my party. I ordered the "Scully's Dip" which was a roast beef sandwich. I... More

This restaurant was recommended by Capt. Timmy Edens of Shore Thing Fishing Charters after our trip yesterday. We were craving wings as we typically get wings at a drive in Snead's Ferry. Capt. Timmy recommended Quartermasters and thought we would give it a try. It was AWESOME! They were busy, but their service was great and the food was well... More
