Great atmosphere, friendly service and good food! The dock is beautiful at sunset! They have a band sometimes. The alligator tail is a family favorite!

Celebrating my husbands birthday was fun and utterly scrumptious at Corky Bells! The seafood platter for two was wonderful and he enjoyed the carrot cake birthday cake. Don't miss this restaurant! The whimsical alligators and fish decorations keep children laughing.

Six old boaters each ordered different entrees. Frogs eg excellent, hush.puppies cold and hard. Fish ok. It would have been better if we hadn't had to ask for flatware after we were served

Enjoy the shrimp with a side of grits and try a skinny cocktail. Indoor or outdoor dining is provided. It is a great spot to watch the sunset.

We come here every spring on our visit. We enjoy the outside seating. However, this year's service was our last. Waited 45 minutes after our order was taken. Food arrived and not only was it cold, but part of the fried food was still frozen. My husband received the wrong meal and when he pointed this out to the server,... More
