This small restaurant has been in Orange Park for years and continues to serve good seafood. It's not a fancy place but the food is great! The portions are ample and the price is good. Service is efficient and friendly. Don't overlook this modest place. It's a gem in the rough.

The food is delicious and you can get fried, grilled, or broiled. The wait staff are very friendly and courteous and always helpful. They have a huge variety on the menu and there is something for everyone.

The location was good, the food was very good a lot for your money. The staff was great. The fish and crab cakes were good, the fried corn was something I never had and it was good. Alligator all my goodness it was good.

Went for lunch with a friend. Ordered the Fish but had to pay extra for the scallops The food was good and the vegetables were seasoned and cooked to taste. The only thing is the rice was a little over cooked (stuck together) Other than that the meal was very pleasing.

Love their cheese grits and catfish. Grits are creamy and cheesy and cat fish fried just right. Prices are good. Staff friendly and personable.

This is one of those places you would pass by if you didn't know about it. But let me tell you it's worth the stop. It's located off of route 17 so sometimes that street is busy but write the address down and stop by a great place to eat. So far everytime I do stop the food and service... More

The food was excellent an well as the service. She kept my tea glass full and heat checking on us to see if we needed anything. We ordered all you can eat shrimp and she would bring us more without us having to ask for more.

Wanted seafood. Had gift card. Driving by. LUNCH! Trying to be good on Weight Watchers. Ordered broiled scallops and shrimp. Even ate 1 hushpuppy. Service was great. Hubby said this was better than the seafood restaurant we usually go to. We will be back.

Thank Judy B
