Traditional decor that has been the same for 40 years. The menu has traditional items and steaks. The grilled fish platter was good and my son had the New York strip steak that was excellent. Wait staff was friendly. My first time, but many patrons were apparently regulars. Glad I tried it, but I'll try other places next time.

I would give it a solid 3.5/5 stars. Nothing fancy, but not bad either. Food was good and the price was reasonable. Seems to be popular with the retired crowd.

The food was ok, but nothing that was wonderful. The fish was lightly breaded, but not greasy, even though it was fried.

I really wanted to love this place. The restaurant itself is really beautiful and our waitress was super nice and helpful. The food though was a different story. My fiancés steak tasted like charcoal and the outside was black. They took it back and gave him a new one with no problem. At this point I felt bad for complaining... More

We had dinner and were surprised by the casual atmosphere coupled with the high prices. The food and service were ok, but pricey.

Had drinks before dining on salmon, fried oysters and fried shrimp. Wonderful quality. Owner John as well as the other staff are truly hospitable. A must if you are in the Golden Isles.

We always the Fried Shrimp, because we think that they are the BEST around the islands. We add Fries or Baked Potato, along with an EXCELLENT side salad with Ranch Dressing (your choice). My wife orders the standard Sweet Tea, but ,again, I have Coffee here since they always make it fresh & keep your cup full................ENJOY !!

Kind of the place you would take your grandparents to. Really 1960's ugly on the inside and looks like an out of place log cabin on the outside. Having said that... go where the locals go. The food is really good. Better than good. Our crab stew was creamy and full of crab meat. My crab cakes were so perfect... More

This restaurant has always been a favorite for fresh seafood, particularly shrimp. But the parmesan encrusted grouper in tomato cream sauce was perhaps the best seafood entrée I've ever had. If there is one things that's only ordinary, it's their house salad....however every other item my wife and I have had was excellent.

Thank hinto1
