What a delight. The chef cooks nearby so you can watch his magic and magic it is. The menu is created daily and written on a chalk board. It features fresh fish and seafood as well as red meat. This is a bar, but don't expect burgers and chips. The service is friendly, and this is truly a hidden gem.

5 Star food and service in what some would call a "hole in the wall" location. I would call it relaxed, unique, and very comfortable! We were immediately greeted upon our arrival and chose to sit at the bar, you will find the days menu listed in the 2 chalk boards where you will find a variety of seafood, beef,... More

This place was the best seafood that I have ever had. The Shecrab bisque was the best, you could see the crab in every spoon you ate and the flavors were wonderful. We ate the lobster ravioli as our entree. It was loaded with lobster and you got 8 large pieces with a crab cake on the top. Marshall the... More

We have been wanting to go to this restaurant for over a year and since it was our 20th year anniversary we decided to splurge and treat ourselves. First of all, don't get all dressed up to go here, it's very casual and a person fights the need to go back outside once inside to check if it's the right... More

Hubby and I went here based on the recommendation of the owners of At the Water's Edge. To start off, we both felt as if we were eating dinner with friends. There were two other couples in the restaurant besides us and everyone was chatting with the waiter/bartender - Ryan (?). The entire place was very small, a long bar... More

Its a small restaurant with only 4 tables and then bar seats. The surprise is the fantastic menu. My wife had the crab cakes and I had lobster ravioli. Drinks are great and a good beer selection. Portions were large and some of each came home.

I have been to this place several times. Never disappointed in the food. There are no menus but there is a menu board that changes depending on the fresh fish they are able to get. Don't let the look of a "dive bar" fool you. The food is "five star"! My favorite dish is the scallops, the grilled romaine &... More

My friends from Ann Arbor heard about Skaliwags and so I took them there last night. Both are amazing gourmet cooks and LOVED everything we ordered! We started with crispy shrimp, grilled romaine and had Osso Bucco, Scallops and Crab Cakes for our entree. The cheesy grits were excellent - everything prepared to perfection and soooo delicious! Service exceptional!!!!! No... More

We stopped for the second time this weekend and got there at 5:15. Were told it would be a 30 minute wait. Wanted a drink. We had space along the front window. All bar is reserved for dining - which is part of the experience. Were told that we couldn't order a drink because it would get too crowded. We... More

Arrived just in time, about 5:15 and the place filled up... we had front row seats to the kitchen from the bar which was fantastic. No frills atmosphere with character and great menu options. Andy was in the kitchen and he did us right by guiding us to the Barramundi, and we also had the guacamole lobster..both were delicious. Our... More
