The food was very good. Casual atmosphere was nice and good for families. We ate outdoors and it was very pleasant. They were exceptionally busy, but the server did her best and we were noot unhappy with her.

I’m sorry to hear the oysters weren’t what you were looking for. Our selection changes regularly based on what is fresh and available through our local seafood vendor, local oysters being available to the area in the fall. Please join us again then for fresh,...More

Could have probably got a much better meal somewhere else. Seems as thought this place has stopped caring. The waitress was not very knowledgeable, she really didn't know much about anything on the menu, seemed like she didn't care to find out either. Need better...More

I am so sorry that your experience with us clearly wasn't our best foot forward. We use local seafood and I cannot imagine why the shrimp was not fresh for you, just like our oysters were! Hopefully, on you next visit we will be able...More

Ate a late lunch at Plums and sat out on the patio. It was a little breezy the third week of April. The waitstaff showed their "Southern " hospitality and recommended several dishes. My friend had fried oysters and I had grilled shrimp. They were...More
