Been wanting some fried fish and since there are 5 of us we decided to get one of the family spreads. Got more fish than we expected, average fries and would have loved hush puppies It was ok but as I said in title it was cold and hard and it is because we had to bring it from West... More

Ordered lunch. Shrimp was good and fries were hot. I also ordered a separate tray of onion rings. The tray was large enough for 2. Wait for food was about 18 minutes, because they cook to order. I didn't mind because at least the food is not sitting under a heat lamp to be given to you. They also have... More

The lady behind the counter acted as if she'd rather be anywhere but there but maybe she was having a bad day. Thankfully, our waitress was attentive and nice. The food was...average. Our party of 3 ordered a grilled shrimp sandwich, fried shrimp plate and whole Catfish. It was all hot and looked fresh. This is more like fast food,... More

Worse dining experience of my life. I ordered chicken strips. The meat was yellow, had a weird texture and tasted "funny'. When I asked the person working why they were yellow, he said it was just food coloring.

Terrible will never step foot in place again! They were rude, food was bad, they acted put out if asked for condiments and treated you like they were mad to even have to bring you your meal. The oysters were bad and we got sick. Horrible they should be ashamed to even have a place so bad

This place is fantastic. The food is great - the portions huge. We split a sampler platter and had some left over. They have great seafood. Everyone was friendly and helpful in answering our questions.

I have been a patron of this restaurant for a while now and always called in to order on my way home from work. Usually everything goes without a hitch if Destiny is working however tonight the cashier ask me if I minded being put on hold to which I responded no problem. Well she put the phone down without...

Found this place on TA and, typically opting for local eateries, decided to give it a shot. Not much to look at from the road, but inside we were welcomed by friendly servers and tasty food. Portions are huge and prices are good. My table got fried jumbo shrimp, oysters, fish, chicken strips, and grilled shrimp and fish. Seasoning was... More
