The basics at this place are delicious- fried shrimp, fried catfish, oysters and beer. The service is great and the oyster bar (during the spring) is the place to sit down and do work. Patio during the summer is hard to beat- best lake view...More

As always the food was awesome. Leah was our server. She's the best we've ever had there. Besides being a great server with a great personality, she is so cute. We're looking forward to our next trip there!

We had just appetizers, but mainly went for view and cold draught beer. The view cannot be beat. Lots of boat activity with passing under nearby bridge and docking next to restaurant.

Brought the entire family this time and we ate out on the deck while the boats were going by. The grands loved the boats and the ducks floating by. The food as usual was great! Everyone in our group of nine had a great meal...More

You are right on the water. You can see the water from almost every table in the restaurant. Menu also has non-seafood options like grilled chicken, po-boys, and burgers.
