We enjoyed the catfish and shrimp, our favorite being the shrimp! Homemade tartar and cocktail sauces were very good, as well as the hushpuppies. Highly recommended.

Awesome food and burgers are great, even though it is a fish place. It is very busy, so plan on being patient.

The only issue is deciding what to order. We had chicken and burgers. Both are very good. Great place to eat, and our favorite on the entire trip.

First time. Nothing fancy just really good food. Catfish and hush puppies were great. Slaw was good but too finely diced. Place was a little smokey from cooking.

Found this place using google and wasn’t sure what to expect. The food was really good and the atmosphere was pleasant. Service was good as well. Didn’t have a long wait.
