The fish, shrimp, and crab were fried with a very light batter and tasted great. Recommend sides are red beans with rice and cheesy grits. There is no atmosphere but the eats are great and prices are quite reasonable.

I liked the location, but the food was just average.I had the shrimp basket, and I'm pretty sure it was from a frozen food supplier. Our server was very good.

Service was great! The Boom Boom shrimp appetizer was absolutely fabulous! The sauce was a little sweet with some spice. We had the blackened white fish & shrimp. Food came out quickly and everything was great!

I have to get on their site to see what's happening. They are not very proactive but I love the food.
