Average is how I'd describe it. Nothing special. Owners have hit on a market that's hot right now - okay Seafood served in an atmosphere that makes you feel like you're someplace special - but then the food comes and, Meh. Red Lobster-like.

Half shell where just okay. Steam and chargrilled were dried dried-out. The corn on the cob was either previously frozen or not fresh and overcooked. Female bartender, however, was very pleasant. I will not return nor do I recommend the place.

Delicious food and unpretentious atmosphere. We had their salad with blackened mahi and we got an order of 12 oysters. Both were absolutely scrumptious Service was quick and friendly

...as far as you can and don't look back. Or, better yet, burn your money. Questionable hygiene. Cook drinking at the bar awaiting the next order. In fact the entire staff is distracted. Water (hopefully not biohazard) dripping from the ceiling onto customers and food...More

First, it's nothing fancy. It's more of a hole-in-the-wall bar establlishment. They have seafood by the bucket! They have decent hush puppies, and we also liked the crab balls. I know Snow crab isn't local, but the steamed crab legs are always a good portion...More

We went here for the 4th of July, the town was really busy. The food was great, servers took care of us, and food was amazing. I really LOVED the hushpuppies.
