Solid calabash style seafood forthe most part. Restaurant was very busy (arrived 6:20, seeated 7:20). Could have used an additional resturant. Again, food was solid. This is not a fancy place. Families and an older crowd.

We went to this restaurant and were very disappointed. The service was not up to par. Our server was friendly and polite but did not know how to provide restaurant service. We had to get our own coffee refill. We didn't really see him outside...More

We had never been to oak island. We wanted seafood so we asked around. They all recommend this place and thank god we listen. This was the best seafood we ever ate. It is every casual and simple. Flonder,shrimp,oysters and scallops. But it was wonderful.

If you like good food at reasonable prices, fresh seafood cooked to your liking and plenty of it, this is the place to go. It often has a long line of people waiting but it is worth the wait.

Average food and seemed to attract a very senior crowd. Kind of like a local "Red Lobster ". Food was not bad just blah. Nice clean place like your granny ran it.

We had the "special" flounder last Friday. Super tasty, great service, and a fish camp atmosphere. Prices are very reasonable. Sides are great also. Everything we've tried has been extremely good.

We stopped by and had the Dave's Special. We were all quite full when we left. The staff was very pleasant and there is ample parking.

Come for the fried seafood or diner specials, but don't expect the frills like formality and fancy presentation. The local construction guys and geriatrics love it so come if that is what you want. I grew up near Cape Cod and this is what we...More
