Excellent seafood and delicious panini's! Their steamed crabs are excellently seasoned, cream of crab soup is excellent, as well as their fried oysters, and chicken/vegetable panini's! Never had a bad meal here and I've been here maybe 30 times!

I had the soft shell sandwich it was fantastic. Hush puppies are a must hot fresh and yummy. This is a locals place to eat and the steamed crabs are best in town. They offer AYCE and good price.
