The people were nice, and it was basically clean. The food, however, was really, really bad. We went down to get some steamed shrimp, and I have never put such an insipid thing in my mouth in my entire life. It is obvious that they...More

The hush puppies are worth the visit! The location is convenient. If you are craving fried food, this a good choice!
