Great food wonderfully prepared. Portions are very large. Nice setting on the water. Service is pleasant but a bit slow.

We have eaten here many times, always good food. Last time was for lunch with my husband. Was happy we could find food that fit the weight watchers plan.

Lunch here today, this has been our go-to for over 30 years. $35 for lunch for two. Two pieces of fish and 6 shrimp plus small bowl of veggies swimming in butter. Hush puppies were chewy. Time to find a new place.
