Just a fun place to go on vacation. Shrimp burgers are great. Picnic table screen in porch seating. It is a "shack" with good comfort food and friendly people. Check the hours they are subject to change.

Little dive off the highway to Hunting Island State Park. On recommendation from the park ranger, we gave it a try. We had the shrimp burgers which were awesome and little or no filler. All cash business!

We stopped here for the first time after reading all the positive reviews. When we arrived, there was a line outside the door on the steps up to the restaurant. We thought that was a good sign- to be so busy. We placed our order...More

My wife and I stopped here on a trip to Hunting Island State Park. It is a shack. But the food is off the chain. You will be served on paper plates and eat at picnic tables. I even had my dog with me and...More
