We have been going to the "To Do Café" for a while now. Mostly because the Cake Cakes are AWESOME. Also for the friendly staff and great bang for your buck! I'm a picky seafood person and I really love this place! Don't miss it......More

Not worth the Money. $10 for shrimp basket. It had 7 small shrimp , coleslaw and a small hush puppy. Food not that great and way over priced for what you get. Not a good value at all. Never going back!

Love this spot! I like to sit out on the porch when the weather is good. My favorite is the oysters. Their salads are great too. Always fresh ingredients. Feels like home.
