The best seafood restaurant in town with an elaborate menu. Priced very affordable. Large diverse menu with everything from sandwiches to a full dinner. Get there early but, the wait is worth it.

It was not what we hoped for but it was what we expected. Poor attempt to mimic a seafood restaurant! Our waiter was very nice and personal but totally misinformed. His explanation of the origin of the fish special was totally wrong. Just a bunch of b.s. The codfish was typical of what is served in the greasy fast food... More

We were on a girls trip to Maggie Valley and a local told us to try this place. You know when the locals go there, it's good! The prices are great, and the food tastes amazing. Casey was our waiter and took such great care of us and offered recommendations on what to order. He didn't seem bothered by us... More

This is worth the 8 mile detour off the interstate! Oysters were fresh. Shrimp and grits, NC rainbow trout, and filet were all amazing!!! I highly recommend the sweet potato casserole.

"What great seafood!" We hear that all of the time and we are thankful to our diners. Great seafood in the Great Smoky Mountains of Western North Carolina just a few miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway. Come join us at our new location just off of the Great Smoky Mountain Expressway (US Hwy 23) and see what everyone is talking about. From our full bar including beer and wine to appetizers, delicious entrees, and our house-made desserts, we are proud to serve you with our courteous wait staff in comfortable dining. We serve weekday lunch specials, and our full menu every evening and weekends with a special Sunday brunch.
