Food really well prepared. Service decent. No frills atmosphere. No nonsense food presentation. Not a place for foodies. However if your in the mood for some good ole down home seafood done right this is the place. Just be prepared to pay premium price.

We had an order of Swamp fries and a basket of fried shrimp and a basket of fried catfish. Swamp fries were awesome! Shrimp were fried perfectly. Felt the catfish could have been cooked a bit more.
