If you love seafood you will love this restaurant! Whether you want it fried or blackened you will not be disappointed. The scallops are amazing. The shrimp and grits.....delish. And you can watch the boats pass and the bridge part for large boats.

Food was very good. Platter size was a little small for the price, but the taste made up for it. Everyone loved the shrimp and crab. Our new favorite seafood place in the area. We will return next time we are in town.

We had lunch with Mrs. Savannah . Cod fish and apps were spot on! Loved sitting out on the deck. Worthy of coming out of house on day off

We visited while in town for a high school band trip. The planning process was easy and professional. When we arrived they were ready for us. They prefer you order your meal when you arrive - different than most places - but it was so...More

My husband and I enjoyed a meal while visiting Folly Beach. He had the grilled trio platter which included fresh catch of the day, shrimp and scallops. All of them were cooked perfectly. More lightly grilled than we are used to but still good. He...More
