One of the regulars around town suggested this place to eat and I'm so glad they did. The food was delicious and the price was right. We had fried shrimp and it was so good. The waitstaff was friendly and helpful with our questions.

Having had the burgers here, along with a small side of the Swamp Soup, I stopped in for a quick lunch, today. The small helping of soup was good along with the burger, but it disappeared all to quickly. All I ordered today was a full bowl of the soup. It was fabulous, all by itself. Plus, being a full...

The menu is diverse and Ashley, our waitress, was helpful in contributing to our choices. We started off with the cheese curds, a somewhat mozzarella stick-ish appetizers with a bit of jalapeno bite. My husband enjoyed the... More

The best thing on the menu is the swamp soup. I've always had a good meal here. It's affordable and the service is friendly.

Some of the best fried shrimp around and that says a lot in this area. They're fried oysters and smoked tuna dip are some of the best I've ever had. Good service and a laid back casual atmosphere! This is our "go to" restaurant when people from out of town want fresh shrimp!
