This is a must for seafood. The food was very good and reasonably priced. I had the captains platter with blackened grouper, flounder, gulf shrimp and clam strips. I split it with my girlfriend and was more than plenty. Great vibe, decor for the beach, and cool swings to chill while you wait if needed or just to relax. Will... More

This is a local favorite, great fried seafood. I had the shrimp and oysters, w/ hushpuppies and ff. Excellent, made fresh, not store bought. My wife had the fish and chips,again well prepared, and lightly battered. Will definitely return when we're there in the spring.

This is above average. My review on Bubbas love shack was no good. There is no love at the love shack. This place is owned by the same folks. We went here one and maybe twice and it was pretty good. The food was good, the staff good and a cute place. Nothing absolutely memorable though. Just a nice place... More

We are staying at a hotel across the street from this place. The menu wasn't huge, but the offerings satisfied our tastebuds for seafood in a beach town. My husband had a good-sized crab cake sandwich. I had the fried oyster sandwich. Both came with good, vinegar-y slaw and fries. We had good service.

Always a good place for lunch or dinner and a cold beer. Good sandwiches and baskets of shrimp, oysters and grouper bites.

This is a fried seafood place that serves burgers and some other stuff. If you want a basket of fried seafood and French fries, you'll be happy. My wife ordered a burger and liked it. My fried clams were ok.

Thank WadeandLori
