A very unique place, the southern version of a Nova Scotian lobster shack and a local favorite. Been a regular here for years. Good seafood though they specialize in fried herring and fried herring roe. Fried roe is a delicacy not easily found. Open mid Jan through Easter.

Have stopped here many times over the years. I only eat the herring but they do serve other seafood. The herring is fried so crispy that you can eat almost all of the bones. Might be an acquired taste, but I love it. Caveat - they are only open during "herring season" - usually sometime in January until sometime in April (April 22 this year will be closing time). When you go down the hill to the restaurant, you feel as if you are going to run into the river as it is situated just at the river's edge. The building almost looks like a shanty; this inside is far from fancy, but the food is good.

best herring we have ever had. Loved the atmosphere and service. Brings back my memories with my Dad on the river at Cypress Creek

Come on in and get the legendary delicious fried fish, stewed potatoes, rock stew and fixings!! This is a trip to the past and a great treasure of the simple life in a fish shack down by the river. You can't leave after finishing that delicious meal without a slice of their wonderful homemade pies!! Lemon is my favorite, but the chocolate is a close second and pecan ain't that far behind. Love this place! Only open now through April, so come on!! :-)
