  • The owners of this place know their seafood. Try the oyster Poor Boy.
  • Bast seafood anywhere
  • Pretty good seafood; better than average but not exceptional.
  • We usually by from the freezers to take home and cook. The crab cakes are good - made fresh on the premises then put in the freezer.
  • Half pound of shrimp for lunch and the cocktail sauce is delish! Make sure to leave a note in the lav!
  • Love this place! Food is great and we walked in on a Sat. Night to live Johnny Cash and Allman Bros tunes. Lots of fun.
  • Steamed shrimp highly recommended!!!
  • While the shrimp dinner was good, the clam strip app wasn't up to par....had a strange taste and was rubbery...and I Love clam this was disappointing.
  • Pleasantly surprised! coleslaw didn't have a traditional taste (tasted like they add sweet pickles)-which was a delightful addition & twist to a traditional recipe. Fried shrimp-cooked to perfection.
  • Crabcakes were bland. I ordered a bbq sandwich that had no bbq sauce on it. The waitress put a side of cold soy sauce with it? Mac n cheese was clearly microwaved. Forgot my hush puppies but no loss.
  • Converted McDonalds
  • Great food and service! Try the chowder!
  • Seated and drinks in hand within 5 minutes. Waitress was pleasant and had our food out to us pretty fast. Got mostly fried and all was just right!!
  • worst service ever. waited 20 minutes and still didn't even get served a drink. what a waste of time.
  • Owned by hippies in a former McDonald's. The business is apparently for sale. A shame considering how amazing the food is.
  • Steamed spiced shrimp are great!
  • The seafood is amazing and so fresh. Like it was straight from the boat.
  • My wife said the clam chowder looked and tasted like dirty dish water. The coleslaw had too much of a vinegar taste.
  • The clam chowder look like dirty dish water. The coleslaw had too much vinegar.
  • The 12 oz sirloin was good. I didn't like the Mac and Cheese as it was bland. The wait staff was friendly, and the drinks came out quickly. The kitchen was a bit slow, but the wait wasn't terrible.
