Crab cakes, Shrimp PoBoy, and blackened white fish all were delicious. It was nice to be able to get grilled shrimp on the PoBoy. Enjoyed the meal.

This was my first time at this location. Crawfish basket was good with broccoli. Shrimp basket was good. Kids chicken basket was good but only 2 chicken strips. The menu has a good selection of food.

Very fresh seafood - I was impressed considering you're in the land-locked area of Auburn. The staff was very friendly and constantly checked back to make sure we were well taken care of. If you're a seafood lover I suggest a visit.
