Awesome seafood and burgers with wonderful beverages! The service and atmosphere were perfect for the birthday festivities! Prices are very reasonable and the free valet parking (tips ) removed the stress of finding parking.

Nice restaurant on the boardwalk with indoor/outdoor seating. Service was great and all of our food was very good. We had crab cakes, hushpuppies, ribs & shrimp. Atmosphere is nice and it is a place we would visit again!
