Friend told us to try here and the seafood chowder is great. Got the boiled shrimp and they are plentiful but they are spicy hot. I liked them but my wife stuck to the chowder

Steamed shrimp platter is delish and enough for two. The gumbo was also excellent. I see why friends from the beach come to Lynn Haven for seafood. It's near the foot of Bailey Bridge!

Good food and friendly staff. Their steamed seafood hits the spot and their oysters on the half shell are good.

Great baked oysters. The steamed shrimp were also done very well. I am a seafood snob as I grew up on the coast and this place has the food down. Beer is cold too!!

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!

The Baked Oysters and Shrimp Crab Corn Chowder are amazing!! This is a small local place with somewhat limited seating which can cause a wait later in the evenings. It's clean, the staff are very friendly, service is good, pop and tea are self serve....More
