Fried to death...fish and quail...so fried and breaded you can't taste what it is. The coleslaw is good and the hush puppies are the best I've ever had anywhere. Nice service.

Sorry, you would have to call them for that information. It tastes like a good hush puppy made up of flour and corn meal combination.
