This place was recommended to us and it was so good!! Great prices, friendly service, delicious and light seafood! Didn't leave feeling sick from a bunch of fried food. We will definitely come again and recommend to everyone we know!

Live up the road and eat here as often as I can! Raw oysters are always great and nothing else on the menu will disappoint either!
