We enjoyed our dinner. There were lots of things I would love to try in the future. Fried oyster appetizer was crisp, not greasy and tender

Nice fall day. Had a nice lunch right on the water. Wish they would have more grilled options. I had the soft shell crab sandwich was tasty. Service was good. I'd try it again if in the area.

Good food, good service and nice views of the creek. You can dock your boat there. Try the Crab on Crab if you like soft shell. Best I have had.

The last time I was there, they had a ramp up to the main dining room. The open porch is at ground level and I am not sure whether there is an open spot from the parking lot onto the dock and lower level or not. The parking... More
