I love to get my seafood fix here. Service has always been great as well. Not too big itself, but great portion sizes. The fried flounder and shrimp are my favorites. Oysters are good too in season.

We had breakfast here and it was delicious. I got the Greek omelette and my husband had the western. We got the biscuit instead of toast and what a great choice that turned out to be! Everything was great, including the service!

I had the fried oyster plate and 2 sides...green beans and corn on the cob. The oysters were average but the corn was fresh and sweet! The green beans were nothing special. We had good service. Loved the hushpuppies!
