After a day of scalloping, we stopped in for a snack. The crab legs and shrimp were awesome. The location is very rustic and reminds me of the joints we used to stop in after fishing when I was a kid.

Extremely limited menu, rude service, and "meh" shrimp. Not sure why it attracts such a crowd. We won't bother going back.

What most people do not realize is, that this was a "Local secret" for years. Now, if you go, you better go early and go hungry because the place gets packed really fast. Amazing food, great staff and a large variety of drinks on hand.

We love this place! Shrimp, crab, fish spread and a bucket of cold beer. Bring cash, as that’s all they take.

Restaurant/Bar in an old seafood freezer on the water where boats bring in their fresh catch. Amazing shrimp, fish dip and stone crabs. A lot of local controversy around restaraunt so it is becoming very popular.
