I've had seafood everywhere and this is ABSOLUTELY one of the best. The shrimp are so fresh and lightly breaded so you get shrimp not crust. Now the crab legs are the best and cooked to perfection. They keep them coming till you have to say stop. Big buffet and lots to choose from, and if you order the platter... More

We travel 2 hours just to eat at this restaurant because it is the best seafood I have ever eaten and the it will not clean your wallet when you pay. Very reasonable prices and the food is amazing.

My wife and I came here as a recommendation from friends in Brunswick, GA. We got here about 12:30 and had no trouble being seated. They have what looks to be a delicious buffet for lunch, but we came for the shrimp. You can order a 1/2 lb. basket or a one lb. dinner of fried shrimp, which we did... More

Pulling up you may question how this is the number one restaurant, as it looks like a dive from the outside. However once you go in, you feel at home and part of the family. The place is a bit small but definitely worth any type of wait. We went here on a business lunch and we all had the... More

Some diners may consider this one to be a "dive", but anyone with a discerning palate will agree that you can't get a fresher taste than this. The river where this food comes from, literally, is blocks away. There's a buffet, but we chose from the menu. The portions were abundant. The shrimp and oysters were so good, they tasted... More

If you can overlook the small entrance area & tiny bathroom, your taste buds are in for a real treat! One of the "locals" highly recommended B&J's for some great, fresh seafood or "Big Mama style" country cook'n from the buffet! I thought my husband was going to OD on the warm chocolate cake & homemade style soft vanilla ice... More

Our group of 4 ate from the buffet. The steamed shrimp was a little overcooked. The flat beans, and Cole slaw were quite good.

The buffet with fried chicken and fried catfish was incredible but the fried shrimp is the star of the show.
