We stopped in to grab our ingredients for the low country boil. Service is always amazing, employees and owners are great. Always so helpful!

Surprise to find seafood restaurant in Knoxville. This is a seafood market and offer lunch too. Interesting place and chaotic to order. Simple menu one page and on the wall. Shrimp po boy is good with small shrimp. Trout fillet fried is fresh and crispy. Fresh seafood market prices are not cheap though.

Used to be an old Long John Silvers and they converted it into a seafood store/ restaurant. Fresh seafood dinners at reasonable prices. My favorite is an enormous Shrimp Po Boy Sandwich. I have also had the scallop dinner a few times and it was also fresh and fried!

Went her for my daughter and she loved it. We got a meal to go and it was done fresh for us. The prices were fair which I was surprised. I really thought they would be higher considering what it was. This is a fresh seafood market that also cooks food. You get a lot in your order in fact... More

We read some pretty negative reviews about this place, so we almost didn't go. We both had shrimp po-boys, and they were excellent! Plenty of shrimp, lightly breaded and fried to perfection. The bread was not hard like we have had at some places. We both had slaw and French fries. The slaw was very tasty, and the fries were... More

First... the prices are too high.... No... way too high... for what you actually get.... But, this is NOT my complaint. Read about that below.... If you go (and you shouldn't), you need to go knowing what you are looking for, what it looks, and smells, like -- because you won't find any honest answers from anyone that works there.... More

We actually ate at the Alcoa location, but this was a gem of a find. It was located in an old Long John Silver's building, which gave me a little trepidation, but this food is the real deal and reminded me of one of our favorite places in Florida to eat. The seating inside it fairly limited, but ona nice... More
