It's a quote that's posted in the restaurant that speaks volumes on the quality of the food not the pricing as it's quite reasonable. Continues to be the best seafood..you will not be disappointed

Best hush puppies I ever ate. You can choose steamed or broiled seafood if you can't eat fried. Come early if you don't want to wait for a table.

This restaurant has been in business for over 40 years. The seafood is breaded lightly, not battered so the taste of the fish and seafood is not overpowered by batter. The seafood and fish is fresh, the food prepared onsite. The hushpuppies are delicious, delivered to your table hot so you can dip them in butter. The slaw is the... More

We now live in Tennessee and we always eat here when we go back home for a visit. The best ever, down to earth seafood. Not the fancy type seafood here in Nashville. Melt in your mouth shrimp.

excellent seafood. I live in CT and I think the north has by far the best seafood but Dixie Queen is a strong contender.

Food is constantly the same, not bad but not great either. Fish, shrimp, fish, they all taste the same. The waitress are nice and service is good. The guy at the cash register is jerk. You have to show proof that you are over 65 to get a senior citizen card. We carried our aunt who is 83 and he... More

Small and quaint but get there before it gets packed. Local food at its best....not good if you are dieting though this is comfort food I did not explore the healthy options did not care too but I am sure it is good but if you want to go all out get it FRIED, unbuckle you pants and dig in.

Thank matthew Y
