We pulled into the parking lot 15 minutes before the doors opened. We were one of 5 cars waiting. Within 10 minutes the place was packed. Luckily we headed straight to the bar for fast service so we could eat and go to our scheduled beach tour 45 minutes north. Food and service was AMAZING.

Food and service was top notch. We love seafood and we're afraid it was going to be a tourist trap spot but it was FAR from that. We will be back

Limited food and wine menu but excellent choices across the board. Brisk service from order to having the food at your table. Restaurant was packed at the end of February which is a great sign as most everyone seemed to be regulars.

I am deligted you had good meals. I have to push back a bit on the "limited food and wine menu". If you check (menu linked to TA), you will find that wehave 31 menu items, not counting desserts, kids menu, and wine, beer and drinks. Additionaly, we have numerous daily specials. So Joel, next time you want to visit... More

Went here for lunch with my husband for our anniversary. Our server was both personable and professional. We weren't sure how good it would be, given its location in a small shopping center, but we were amazed! The bronzed scallop appetizer was delicious. The mussels in wine with spinach and bleu cheese was served with crusty, cheesy bread, perfect for... More

Went for lunch and had the Seared Sea Scallop appetizer and the Fried Oyster Entree. Just excellent food. Waitress was attentive and we received our drinks and food very quickly. There are always great drink specials. The fried oysters are probably the best I have ever had.

Hey ToyMan675, thanks so much for your nice review. What's not to love about a sunny, warm February day and some plump, briney morsels of seafood goodness? I say it is one of those simple pleasures that make us a great place to visit in the off-season. Super glad you enjoyed your meals, and most apprecitative of your February business.... More

Okay food. French fries covered with pepper, too spicy. Taste of fried oysters was good but not filling for price.
