Stopped here for a burger and was shocked to find it cost $12.00 for a Patty Melt. We were already there so we ate and figured it was our own fault for not checking. The food was good, but for the price, it just isn't...More

The food was very good. I had shrimp tacos-yummy. Mother in law and daughter had lobster bisque--all gone! Husband had shrimp and grits and he couldn't finish all of it. That says something because he eats a lot. We were traveling and it was nice...More
