Stopped here on 8/11/17 and ordered the large grouper platter with salad, slaw, hush puppies and tea. Everything was very good and the restaurant was very clean. My waitress Casey P. was absolutely awesome. Very friendly and helpful. I will be back, good Lord willing.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We ate fresh warm hush puppies while waiting for our orders. When our meals arrived the serving size was generous and everything tasted great.

Poor, slow service;most all seafood options were battered & fried--extremely greasy. Chicken tenders totally dry & tasteless. Complimentary hush puppies were good,though.

I would say a full menu with seafood mostly but other items as well. I ordered the grilled grouper and it was very good. The hushpuppies they bring out are so good I could not stop eating them.
