We had dinner here during our vacation. We went in late, close to closing time, the staff was so welcoming and were excited to have us dine in! The food was phenomenal!

Poor food quality and dark unwelcoming atmosphere. BBQ was mediocre and fatty. The Brunswick stew was served at room temperature. Also seemed like they needed to change the oil in their fryer because the fish breading had a weird taste.

We had a lunch that left us well satisfied and frankly, stuffed. Our shrimp burgers were bursting with tasty little shrimps. Hushpuppies - yum, yum. Decor is fun. The best, the prices are VERY reasonable. Need to come back and try the BBQ :)
