We have been serving the area for 17 years. Our business was built on serving quality seafood that is hand breaded and seasoned and served fresh to you...our valued customer. Most of our items are homemade or made from scratch including our hush puppies, onion rings, sauces, dressings, and slaw. We have a large area that can accommodate large parties. We serve seafood, steaks, chicken, pasta, sandwiches, and salads.
