Four of us stopped for dinner, with expectations of a good southern meal. Be warned, do not get the crab cakes. Do have the shrimp and grits! Exceptional. The house salad was a huge disappointment. Iceberg lettuce , not fresh, even though the server comes...More

We were pleasantly surprised at how good our dinner was here. It's right on the touristy street, always gives us pause, but it got fairly good reviews on TA. The ambiance is bar-like, the service friendly and casual. The shrimp and fish were excellent.

If you have any allergies to seasoning, avoid this place. They will flat out tell you that you cannot eat there. No suggestions, just leave. Apparently all their food is pre-seasoned.

Nice selection of seafood but the shrimp did take the prize! Local and fresh. Cajun choices had me return the following day!

I believe when you leave a review you have the option of sending a note directly to the restaurant. If not you can always go to their web site and select "Contact us". Good luck, and I'm glad you enjoyed your meal!
