Very hard to find unless you are familiar with the area. but it is worth looking for. All the usual southern specialties you would expect plus some of the best seafood around. They are famous for their BBQ but to me it is all good.

Everyone prizes the seafood buffet, which is almost all fried seafood that was probably frozen at some point. Years ago, when the restaurant first opened, it was a respectable place, but it's gone downhill within the past couple years. Aside from the cafeteria like atmosphere...More
