Their crab cakes are the best. The fried oysters are wonderful. Best spoonbread I've ever had. Friendly small town atmosphere and good service. Can't wait to go back!

Walked in for a late dinner and sat at the bar. A little funky, but we like funk. The bar has some great mixed drinks. All we had were the crab cakes, and they were the best we had from there down to Florida. The...More
