Located right off the interstate; we found a very pleasant surprise at exit 390. Had the grouper Gillen, poor boy w crawfish, and the shrimp&Grits. All of us enjoyed the meal; at the tail end of a long day headed south. Thanks for the hospitality.

Cedar River is likely as good as any around here. I am no fan of Red Lobster and the Northwest Grill has, in my opinion, really deteriorated. Schooners in St. Augustine and Brown Lantern in Live Oak are both excellent for... More
