Good Service, awesome hush puppies, fish was very good, pricing was very fair. Desserts looked great, but way too much food for dessert.

We stopped looking for something a little healthier. We found it. Fresh fish and veggies. Yum. The salad is basic and the hushpuppies are quite tasty. So fast, fresh, friendly staff. Like I said. What’s not to love. Will eat here again.

I would say a full menu with seafood mostly but other items as well. I ordered the grilled grouper and it was very good. The hushpuppies they bring out are so good I could not stop eating them.
