A restaurant that I frequent often and have never been disappointed. The food is good, the service is to be commended. This restaurant is a staple in the community where I reside and has been for years.

The decor is tired, location convenient, service good. And the fish is well prepared, fresh and tasty. It's my usual go to place for fish. Their slaw is to die for. Prices are reasonable for the type of restaurant.

We went there based on other reviews we have read. The waitstaff were attentive. The meals (four of us had various seafood dishes) was ok, but nothing to rave about. The focus seems to be on fried foods, which were pretty good, but the baked or broiled were dried out. It was not bad, but we won't be going back... More

This small restaurant has been in Orange Park for years and continues to serve good seafood. It's not a fancy place but the food is great! The portions are ample and the price is good. Service is efficient and friendly. Don't overlook this modest place. It's a gem in the rough.

The location was good, the food was very good a lot for your money. The staff was great. The fish and crab cakes were good, the fried corn was something I never had and it was good. Alligator all my goodness it was good.

Went for lunch with a friend. Ordered the Fish but had to pay extra for the scallops The food was good and the vegetables were seasoned and cooked to taste. The only thing is the rice was a little over cooked (stuck together) Other than that the meal was very pleasing.

Love their cheese grits and catfish. Grits are creamy and cheesy and cat fish fried just right. Prices are good. Staff friendly and personable.
