Nothing special. Mostly over priced food that lacked in presentation. The happy hour is from 3-6 pm. However there are better deals to be found.

The restaurant itself is a dim joint with a fisherman theme. My husband ordered the Mahi Mahi which was delicious. Also recommend the garlic butter red potatoes (to die for). I had fish and chips which was good as I'm not a big seafood eater....More

$1.50 Beers, 79 cent Oysters, Shrimp and awesome Wings for 65 cents. Friendly Staff, eclectic atmosphere, friendly regulars and attentive service make Cooters the place to go for the 3-6 Happy Hour. They also have all you can eat Crab Legs on Monday and Tuesday.
