We had dinner here last night. The fried shrimp are great and the catfish is good. My wife had raw oysters which she said were very good. The atmosphere is great, over the water with Canadian geese all around. I highly recommend this stop.

You are right on the water. You can see the water from almost every table in the restaurant. Menu also has non-seafood options like grilled chicken, po-boys, and burgers.
