Good blackened Grouper filet and seasonal veggies. Forgettable French fries. Fried green tomatoes were good. The boiled shrimp was over boiled. Other than the spice it was boiled in it was tasteless. The texture was off.

Parking is horrible. Restaurant was clean, staff was very polite. Prices were average. The food was average. It was the first time for our group eating there. Nothing spectacular but not bad either. Pizza, burgers, pasta, etc.

Went for dinner on Friday night. The boiled shrimp were a little soggy. Enjoyed the Stack Shack sandwich. Excellent server!

I wish I knew who your server was so that I could tell them your comments and also that you had told us about your shrimp. We would have gladly replaced them with more. Hope to see you again soon. Cheryl Wilson

The food was good, but not great and the service was friendly and fast with our orders. I enjoyed the view from the deck overlooking the docks the most.

We went on "eclipse day," so it was crowded. Our waitress did her best to keep up. The boiled shrimp was tasty, albeit a bit overcooked. We felt they were a bit pricey compared to visits in the past and other local restaurants, but it's...More

Sorry. I just saw this question. Dogs - although we all love and have them - are not allowed on the deck. Cheryl Wilson
