Attended for lunch. At suggestion of server, two people shared a mahi mahi dinner for $20.99 plus $2.00 for an extra plate plus one draft of beer and one glass of wine. When the meal arrived, the mahi mahi was overdone, very dry and chewy. The server said she would find the manager and get back to us. After several... More

First of all you have to be a lover of smoked fish, which I'm not really. My son and I went there to try the smoked fish spread. Their's was a traditional blend of the more oily fishes and we didn't care for that. What we had enjoyed elsewhere was all maui-maui and much milder. Waitress was extremely friendly and... More

My parents use to bring me here. It hasn't changed at all except a rule now and then. Their smoked fish spread is a "talk about town" and the gage to others you might find.... "Is it better than Ted Peters?" I've found a few that have better spread; like Casper's in Kenneth City. But.... for those that want to... More

I've been a commercial fisherman for 30 years. I've smoked my own black fish, bass , blue fish,week fish. And any other kind of fish you can name that's caught north of North Carolina! The menu offered 4 types of smoked fish, 2 of which were not on the menu today! So I settled for the boney mullet! Awful! I... More

This is a great local place. The fish spread and warm potato salad are excellent! All outdoor seating or takeout. The prices are good for the quality of the food. One beer on tap - Miller High Life and it's not bad ice cold. Definitely recommended and we'll be going back.

Go for the smoked fish, although the hamburgers are really good as well. My preference is the smoked mullet - it is the whole fish (sans the head, so as not to offend the squeamish). The luncheon size is small, when you order dinner the fish is larger. Mahi and salmon fillets are also available. The best IMHO, mackerel, is... More

We liked it so much we went back 2 days in a row. Mahi Mahi was great. Fish spread was very tasty. Hamburgers were huge and kids loved them. Our favorite however was the Potato Salad. It is unique and highly recommended. The draft beer in a frosty mug for $2.99 hit the spot. They put kids drinks in frosty... More
