I had the stuffed fish and it was 2 white fish fillets stuffed with deviled crab. It was a very large portion and was very good. Quick service, low prices considering what you get for a meal. The hush puppies were delicious.

Read various reviews and so decided to stop for lunch. Good food, clean, very friendly staff. Had catfish and shrimp house specials. Both tasty as was coleslaw, French fries and baked potato. Very reasonably priced.

My son and his family went on a Friday night. There was only a short wait. The food was delicious, both fried and broiled. The service was excellent even though it was very busy.

We don't eat crab legs, so we would not know. Give the restaurant a call and ask. All the staff was very nice.
