It was fine. Not the greatest. I️ had the fish tacos and they were ok but not fabulous. The gumbo was good. Oysters were average.

The shrimp and grits are very good. We try to eat here at least once every time we visit the Lake. It is clean and the wait staff is always friendly. Its a good place for a family dinner.

Average food. Our group of 5 started with the fried dill pickles which were very, very salty. The chicken alfredo was declared "so-so". The others in the party had catfish, grouper, and the OJ platter with various sides. Sweet potato fries and okra were pretty...More
