The best feature is the view of the Beaufort River and the marina. Nice parking lot. Food is slightly above average but the service has been bad.

We had a very nice meal and fun time. Can sit indoors or out, full service bar. Menu is not fancy, but has good variety. Staff was very attentive and took good care of customers.

Back porch is always pretty good. Burgers and nachos are very good. Outside sitting on a nice day or evening is very pleasant.. service is good. Thursday night is trivia night. Good prices.

Great view of the water in Port Royal. We ate outside overlooking the water. Oyster Po Boy was delicious and well worth it.
