OK, you may think, "just how good can popcorn shrimp really be?" My wife and I will tell you, it could not be any better. Whenever we are within 50 miles of this place, we go. Always fresh, hot and delicious. Being inexpensive is just the kicker. My advice - don't miss it when in the area.

We were looking for a place to have some seafood and watch the sunset, so we popped in here. Very casual beach place, nice big covered patio overlooking the waterway, picnic tables for seating. We ordered a dozen raw oysters with a local brew called 30A, a light ale with no bitter aftertaste and no overwhelming fruit flavor, which we... More

This place is delicious! The shrimp platter and Cajun pasta was soooo good! The view of the harbor was spectacular and refreshing and it was so calm. Our waiter was sooo good and very friendly.

We went to dinner on a Saturday night. There was no wait. Our waiter was awesome. Attentive and knowledgeable and fun. We had the oysters Mary Ann. So, so good! They have the best crab legs and at a great price. So glad we stopped and checked this place out.

My husband and son had the all you can eat fish and shrimp and they said it was awesome! I had the steak and it was cooked perfect for me, which is med/well. It did not have a lot of seasoning, but was still yummy. The new potatoes it comes with were deliscious! There are choices for everyone on the... More

Had dinner there with some friends and all our kids. We came in around 8 with a party of 11 and were sat right away. Mind you this was spring break. The service was very good, but the food was so so. The hushpuppies and the french fries were standouts for us.

The smell of the restaurant was little weird. Can't quite place what it was. Service was wonderful and the waitress was very honest about what not to order and what to order. The catfish was cooked perfectly and delicious. Also, the bowl of red beans was yummy. Unfortunately I wouldn't eat here again. The atmosphere was lacking.
