1.5 miles east of I-75. Interior noisy and no charm. Several large screens with sports seem out of place in this kind of restaurant with no large bar area. They just added to the noise and lack of charm.

Food average at best. Seafood platter for two was so so. Service adequate but not focused.

We had high expectations but the overall experience was not above average, hence the rating of 3.

Wife had the blackened catfish, came out bland, seemed to be steamed and sprinkled with seasoning. Clam chowder was great. I had t he breaded catfish, also bland, maybe lack of salt, mac n cheese seemed to be cheese sauce with pasta. Limas were really good. Hush puppies not good at all. Not our first visit, usually much better.

Had a really good meal with 4 other adult family members. The menu has lots of options and is reasonably priced. Staff was outstanding. You can get some house wines and beer but direct your money instead to the food. Hush puppies got a thumbs up. The Garden salad was huge. The breading was light and did not taste like day old cooking oil. Side items were bountiful. This is not where you want to count calories and carbs, so just enjoy the seafood!

Well, it was our second time and it was again a wonderful meal. This time it was very busy with the parking lot almost full. Our waitress was right there getting our drink orders, very friendly. Of course I ended up ordering the same thing I had the first time because it was sooooo good! It came out and again was excellent however the scallops weren't as big as the first time and maybe cooked a bit more but still very very good. We'll be back!

Heading to Georgia and wanted to stop somewhere that wasn’t fast food since it was hubby’s birthday. Our daughter got the hamburger and said it was the best burger she’d had in a very long time - it was huge! She took part of it with her and ate it the next day. Hubby and I had fried shrimp special. The fried shrimp was delicious, as were the cheese grits, hush puppies, and fries. Very large portion, we took to-go boxes as well. The service was great, helpful, friendly, and fast. I hate that I cannot remember our waitress’ name because she was terrific!
