No longer good this place has really gone down hill! Food is no longer good, fish greasy, hushpuppie not done inside, slaw had nothing on it and baked potato had been cooked for days old! No one in the party of 5 was pleased. Sad!

The food is delicious. My husband had the fried oysters. It was a very generous portion. I had the all-you-can-eat Shrimp which is served Monday thru Thursday. All the food was out of this world! Chris was a great server, too!!

Best fried shrimp & scallops ever. Very light batter, not heavy. Perfectly fried. Delicious. Waitress fast, friendly. Delightful. Wonderful evening. Went at busy time, Saturday night. Only waited 10 minutes for party of 4. Everyone was very happy.

The restaurant is somewhat dated but dont let that fool you. We went for dinner and the food was fantastic. Prices are on the high side but not as bad as chain restaurants. The calamari is in my top 3 for best I've ever had...

I do not know the exact cost of lobster tail . Most restaurants simply list it as Market Price. I expect it would be between 25 and 45 dollars depending on the size..
