Despite hearing about it and living nearby for many years. Prices were higher (location). Service very attentive. Blackened redfish surprisingly bland but topped shrimp were perfect. Sweet potato fries very well done. Corn grits unusual and very good. Will try again.

This is continuously the best seafood in town. They have the widest variety of seafood on the menu and they know how to prepare it. Don't think it's cheap. You are getting the best quality in the city and you pay for what you get....More

Nothing fancy, but consistently outstanding food and service. We love the fried tomato salad, toped with plenty of delicious lump crabmeat. Fried shrimp is among the best we've ever had. Boiled seafood is good. Crawfish hush puppies, baked macaroni and onion rings are also outstanding....More
