We were able to make reservations for two. The flounder crusted in sweet potato was good. The drink of the day $5 and worth it. Corn bread was just okay

They specialized in local sources ingredients including shrimp, grouper, flounder, and others. I had a shrimp and scallops dish that was excellent. It is rather small so you may want to make reservations. An equal amount of seating indoor and outside on the covered patio.

So we barely made it before closing on a Monday night but were grateful to be seated and served. We had a cocktail and split a dinner since it was late. Fried flounder (1 piece) and a few scallops on a generous bed of French...More

What a waste of time and money. Family of five ordered three children’s grilled shrimp with fruit, old bay spice shrimp appetizer, and the house special entree- Grouper. Everyone got water to drink. And that was the best tasting thing we had. The total was...More
