Food is great for what we went for - basic fried seafood with a salad. Nothing fancy. Wait staff was very nice and it was a friendly atmosphere. Value for the price was good. If you're looking for a quick respite from your driving the...More

This was a great place to eat! We had the flounder and clams and it was delicious with a perfectly baked potato and some wonderful hushpuppies! And the iced tea was great. They even had a small salad bar. Server was friendly and attentive and...More
