We enjoy going to Posey's for seafood, especially on Thursday when it's all you can eat shrimp with cheese grits, slaw, and hush puppies. It's not fancy but you can count on good food and friendly service.

This is a simple local place that was a real treat. Seafood was fresh and the oysters, while not local (from Tampa area) were large succulent and some of the best we ate in the area. Good service . We will be back for more.

Comfort food, adequately prepared but no incredible recipes. The atmosphere is disgusting and denigrates the food, even grouper throats. You’ll pay 75.00 plus for three with iced tea. Ripoff

If you are in the market for fried seafood, this place will likely satisfy your craving. I wouldn't have called the food great, but my oysters were well prepared and tasty. A friend said her grouper sandwich was much better than another spot we visited...More
