The fried oysters were ridiculously amazing. Perfection. Creamy, crispy, briny. Yum. The shrimp were also good, as were the sweet potato fries. I would just about drive from Atlanta for the oysters. Seriously.

Great BBQ but a long wait when it's busy. Pulled pork sandwiches are huge. Outdoor seating is decent.

Good wild caught shrimp. Very busy setting and hard to find in a shopping Center. Good sides. You order at window and pick up there.
