Good local mom & pop restaurant for seafood. Tifton is one of those freeway exits with all the chain restaurants, but we'd been on the road for many hours and I wanted "real" (comfort) food for dinner! So I did what I usually do when I'm somewhere new: I asked a local where to eat that was a local favorite.... More

Through the years, I've eaten here dozens of times. You come here for fried seafood. That's what they do. In their case, 'seafood' must also include catfish. They sell lots of catfish, on the bone or in nuggets. Veggies are limited: green beans, coleslaw and salads. And there have a fairly small selection of beer, no wine. The crowd is... More

I have driven by this place so many times over the last 30 years or so and thought, "I',m going to stop and try them sometime." Well, after all this time I did. It was great. I am a southerner by birth and taste palate. If you love southern fried seafood this is the spot. They will prepare it other... More

This restaurant is a local establishment. The service here is great. Personally, I think it's slightly overpriced for the quality of food. The fish my daughters ordered tasted like frozen fish in a cafeteria. The shrimp is tasty though. Anyway, our meal wasn't bad. I just think it is overpriced .

I have eaten here every monthly trip I make to Tifton. My last visit had a tough cut of salmon. I didn't know that was possible. When I paid and was asked if everything was okay I responded the salmon was tough. "I'm sorry" was the reply. I ate somewhere else on. The October trip. I had always had good... More

My family and I love to eat here! They have fast service and it doesn't take long for the food to come out. It's always been fresh and yummy! :) It's always nice to see the owner in the kitchen working and cooking just like everyone else. We will definitely keep coming back!

Don't judge this book by its cover. This place has some of the best seafood I've eaten. Stopped twice traveling between Florida and North Carolina. Both meals were served hot and tasty. They have the best hush puppies, too. Light and so delicious.

We went there tonight and the food and service was excellent. The place was packed and we had maybe a 5 min wait. I had the grilled shrimp and it was very tasty. The coleslaw was excellent. We ordered fried pickles for an appetizer and they were very good as well. The catfish was also very good. They serve you... More

Charles is a quaint local place that has awesome seafood! We had fried pickles as an appetizer, then main dishes of small fried shrimp (like popcorn), grilled salmon and grilled grouper! Love the hush puppies too! All were excellent! I Love the Pitcher of sweet tea on the table 😃 It can be busy on Friday and Sat evenings BUT... More

Perhaps, if I'd have come here for the hushpuppies and coleslaw, my review would have been different. But, I came for the seafood and was very disappointed. I got the special, flounder and small shrimp. The shrimp were cooked perfectly but, had no flavor. They didn't even have shrimp flavor. Tried dipping them in cocktail sauce but the sauce was...
