We hadn't been in nearly 12years and had hoped the food would've been better from our past experience. Upon receiving the hushpuppies we noticed right away the our experience might mimic the last. They were soggy inside dripping with grease. The salad bar was good...More

It is a nice place for eating some seafood and take a rest. The waitress is a really kind no so young woman, polite and "cuidadosa". We enjoyed the early dinner in the way to Franklin.

Standard old time fish camp food. Hush puppies served as soon as you sit down. At the table we had salt and pepper catfish, fried flounder and cold boiled shrimp. All was just Ok, not bad not great. Salad bar looked fresh.

Steak was cooked to perfection. Salad bar was good, make sure you get all the salad you want in one trip because there is NO second trip. There was only one older lady that sitted us, she's also the server and the cashier all in...More

Stopped here because it was one of the few restaurants open on Sunday. I ordered the house steak medium. Well not sure why they even asked how I wanted to steak because it was really thin. Disappointed since it was 15 dollars. Go to another...More

The atmosphere and people were nice, but the food was really lacking. You do get a lot of food, but there was so much breading and so little seafood that it was very disappointing. As we ate, you kept getting more and more breading, and...More
