We were traveling and found this restrauant on line. We were pleasantly surprised at the choices. We had boom boom shrimp tacos, seared tuna salad, low country boil and shrimp po boy. All the items were excellent. The service was first rate and the prices were $$ but well worth it.

We were traveling up 95 and decided we needed a lunch break. We decided to take a chance with this little non-chain restaurant and had the best meal we have ever had while traveling. I got a shrimp basket that had a mound of golden, fried, local shrimp with thick cut fries and my husband had the local steamed spiced... More

I had trouble rating this "shack" because I couldn't decide if I was in a small bar or a restaurant that was about to fall down. Granted, it's not much to look at but I can get beyond that if the place is clean and the food is good. The food was only average on the night we visited but... More

Very good seafood and service. Will keep going back. Steaks and all the different ways the seafood is cooked to include fried, steamed, grilled and blackened fills all the different hungers you have.

If you are looking for traditional, local seafood near Coastal Georgia, this is your place! Clay, the personable owner of the establishment, is quite a character and took time to talk and greet everyone in the place. The seafood is locally caught, including the sweet Georgia shrimp. They have many preparations of the seafood -- broiled, boiled, blackened, and fried.... More

We were delighted to find this good seafood restaurant in such a small town. The menu had many good choices. The service was friendly & prompt. We will definitely go back there the next time we are in the area.

This has to be the worst restaurant I have visited in my long life, service was terrible girl disappeared for a least 30 minutes, dinner took over a hour to arrive and was overly cooked and not edible. Would never recommend or go back, if there a crowd there , go somewhere else
