My favorite thing on the menu is the onion roll appetizer and the she-crab soup. Everything else is normal and not any different from any average restaurant.

First time here. Menu is great. Service was excellent. Loved the atmosphere. Ordered the California Dreaming salad and it was amazing. Not a single thing would I change about my visit.

Had a business dinner with 10 people and it was just so so. I got the California Dreaming salad, which is one of my favorites. The dressing was only partially added in. But in the end it was good. Others at the table got steaks....More

I love the house salad with the house dressing. It is a combination of honey mustard dressing and hot bacon dressing. Many times I run over at lunch for the sald and the crab claws. It is the perfect amount and not too pricey.

I guess this place was cool once but it feels "tired" and flat now. The location is very odd too, off by itself and easy to forget unless you are on I-85. My wife had the Flounder po-boy, which seemed very generous, bur for some...More
