Had the Calabash Fish Platter, and it was really good! I'm not a big fried fish guy, but the server highly recommended it and I'm glad he did. Check it out! Service was good, very quick fora late lunch.

Went with the work crew for lunch. Had the calabash chicken and a salad. It was good and the poppy seed bread with the butter is heavenly. Good spot for lunch.
