Why did you change the chowder?? Just because Guy With DDD comes to town; all the restaurants start changing their menus to make them fancier. Well Guy is not the one eating the food everyday and keeping you in business.

Little place, clean and quick service. Abundant food with great tasting flounder, shrimp and hushpuppies. A lot for your buck as well. We ordered take out 6 plates of flounder/shrimp combo and had leftovers feeding 8 people.

Best seafood! Great hush puppies. Lots of food for the money. Everything we ordered was wonderful, but be ready to ask for a carry out box. Guy Fieri visited so that should tell you all u need to know.
