We enjoyed our stop after touring Fort Frederica. Sat outside in their cute patio. Breezy & cool on a warm day. It's in an upscale shopping center--parking can be dicey. Don't bring an RV or trailer.

Decent food and service, but nothing to write home about. Their sweet tea is good. Parking is available out front and all around. There is indoor and outdoor seating.

Good food, live music on some days. Island feel casual atmosphere. Nice Outdoor area for music and drinks under the oak trees. A real local hangout for couples, or families. The bar is usually filled with locals, get there early for a seat.

The menu was varied, and we tried the shrimp and grits and cole slaw (which was vinegar based) with shrimp. Both were wonderful. We sat at the bar, however, we could have picked a quiet... More

I had the fried shrimp po-boy and it was very good. The shrimp and the bread were very fresh. The only downside was that it was so crowded I had to sit at the bar.

Love love the food here! The portions are hearty and the service was wonderful. At night they have live bands and have a full bar. We loved the seating arrangements we can sit outside. Most of the restaurant feels like in Ireland open air relaxed setting.

Good food and service at a more than reasonable price. Came in and grabbed the shrimp po boy with fries along with a side of the fried pickles. Good local spot on SSI and pretty well priced for a touristy area. We would come back.
