We had lunch here and my husband and I split a fried fish, shrimp, and oyster plate. There was a drink and beer special. The service was great, waitress really nice, we were served fast, and the food was good. I would eat here again!

We ate here on our last night in Savannah. Talk about having the best food for our last dinner in Savannah. It was simply the best seafood, we've had in awhile, and we are from Louisiana, where seafood is king...Thanks

Food was ok. But for the options you have in this magnificent port city steer clear! Oysters were not that great. They tasted off, but they weren't fishy. The calamari was small. The caesar salad was overdressed. The margarita lacked alcohol but was almost $10....More

The dinner I had was one of the stand out meals ever. I had the blackened grouper with lightly creamed spinach and was absolutely blown away. Angela was our server and she took great care in making sure my meal was gluten free.
