We went on a Saturday around 6:00 p.m. and it was pretty packed. There were six in our party with no reservations and they promptly found us a table. The atmosphere was nice. It was noisy, but that added to the experience I think. This may not be the place to go for a quiet dinner (unless you sit at one of their outside tables perhaps). There was also a full bar. So we ordered a variety of their offerings including fried oysters, gator, calimari, shrimp, fish, and chicken tenders, with sides of cheese fries, fried green tomatoes, and bread. It was all very good. In fact there was not a dish that any of us had any complaints about. The staff were great, promptly serving us and keeping our drinks refilled. The price point wasn't at "fast food", but it wasn't too bad either. Six of us ordered well more than we should have (and ate well more than we should have), leaving with a bill that was just over a buck and a half. Would certainly go again... great food!

Great atmoshphere. Seafood of all types. They even have Gator! The crawfish mac and cheese was superb. Good drinks. You get a bib. Outdoor seating is available. They have a separate room for parties. Definitely recommend.

This was our second visit here. On a late Saturday afternoon, the service was excellent.

My wife had the fried scallops and I had the fried calamari and the jambalaya. The fried food was perfect. Don't bother with the jambalaya.

Parking can be a pain.

This was our first time here. We absolutely loved the food! Our waitress was very helpful as we told her this was our first time. Not a fancy restaurant, but the food more than made up for it. I would love to go back again❤️

For my sons birthday he choose to wat hear. We all love fish and especcially shrimps. We had great fun and lover the shrimps. You can order cooked shrimps, middels, clawfish, crab or monster, which they prepare with your pick of flavour and they serve of in the bag with a piece of corn to go along with it. You get plastic napkins to tie around your neck and plastic gloves and then ..... charge!!!
The shrimps were great, the clawfish are not so easy to peal. Nu wilde had friet shrimps. They were great as well and much less messy.
